Lifestyle Article - Willis Towers Watson announce new Chair

Willis Towers Watson announced that, three years after the merger of Willis and Towers Watson, James McCann will complete his current term as Chairman of the Board. He will continue to serve as a Director and as Chairman of the Nominating and Governance Committee. McCann will be succeeded as Chairman of the Board by Victor Ganzi, effective January 1, 2019.

 John Haley, CEO, said, “Jim served as Chairman of the Board during the three-year period when Willis Towers Watson built a successful, integrated and leading advisory, broking and solutions company. Both I and the Board would like to take this opportunity to thank Jim for his efforts in support of our company since 2004 and to wish him every future success.”

 “Victor has been a Director of Willis Towers Watson since the January 2016 merger, although his service with the company dates back to 2010 when he served as Chairman of Towers Watson’s Audit Committee and as a member of its Nominating and Governance Committee. As we look to the next phase of our company’s evolution, Victor brings considerable experience and insight to the company and we are delighted to announce his appointment as Chairman of the Board, effective January 1, 2019.”

 Commenting on his appointment, Ganzi said, “Three years after the merger, Willis Towers Watson has made excellent progress in delivering on its integration goals and driving sustainable, profitable revenue growth across the business. Our ability to deliver on the merger’s strategic rationale, namely our integrated approach to people and risk and a uniquely holistic perspective on client needs, is central to our continued success. I am very much looking forward to building on the foundation created over the past three years and taking our company to the next level.”

 McCann said. “I am immensely proud of what we have achieved at Willis Towers Watson in recent years, and glad to have played a leading role in delivering on the 2016 merger and its subsequent progress. It’s been a pleasure to lead the Board through this transformational time in the company’s development and I know that Victor and the rest of the leadership team will continue to lead the company to even greater future success.”

 In addition, Brendan O’Neill will become Chairman of the Audit Committee, replacing Ganzi in that role. O’Neill has served as a Director since January 2010.
