Willis has appointed David Thomas as director of strategy and transformation within its global businesses division. In his new role, which takes immediate effect, Thomas will report to Steve Hearn, chairman and CEO, Willis Global.

Thomas has been an EVP and managing director of Willis Re since 2009 when he joined from international specialty reinsurance broker RK Carvill, of which he was joint CEO. He joined Carvill in 1980 and ran various operating units working with a diverse range of specialty clients helping start ups and developing new products. Since joining Willis Re he has been responsible for the professional liability practice group and running the North American operations based in London with a focus on the production and marketing of large specialty clients.

Commenting on the appointment, Hearn said “David’s new role will be to work with me in leading the development of the strategy for Willis Global Businesses, at the heart of which is the growth and maximisation of the USD40bn of premium that Willis Group places into the global insurance market. There is huge opportunity for us to further build on our collaborative approach to serving the needs of our clients and achieve more proactive management of our diverse portfolio for their benefit. David will also ensure we have the optimum operating structure to realise our future potential. ”
