Tom Haddrill, who has been with Lloyd’s since 2011 and became Asia chief executive this year, will be making a UK comeback to join WTW in early 2023.

WTW has revealed that the University of Southampton alumnus will serve as the company’s London-based regional head of broking for Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Africa (CEEMEA) from February 20 next year.

Commenting on his appointment, Haddrill wrote on LinkedIn: “After seven years in Asia, and 11 with Lloyd’s, I’m delighted to be joining WTW and returning to London with my family in the New Year.

“Leading Lloyd’s amazing operations in my childhood home of Hong Kong and in Singapore has been the privilege of a career, and the support and knowledge I have received from friends, the market, and colleagues here has been incredible. I hope everyone stays in touch, and I can’t wait to get cracking!”

WTW global head of broking Hugo Wegbrans described Haddrill’s career as impressive and said the key hire will bring an “invaluable understanding” of broking and stakeholder landscapes.

“He will implement our global broking strategy across this fascinating geography, while tailoring it to local market and client needs,” declared Wegbrans. “He shares our passion for innovation and client service, and he will be an asset to the team.”

Meanwhile CEEMEA head Eleni Lykoudi called the role “crucial,” citing Haddrill’s wealth of market development and client insights, as well as his extensive leadership experience across diverse and complex regions.
