The appointment, which is effective immediately, will see Burnett take charge of Willis Towers Watson’s CRB operations in Asia. He will remain based in Singapore.

According to a statement by Willis Towers Watson, the move is part of a key business drive to grow its bench strength and accelerate its CRB growth ambitions in Asia.

“We see tremendous opportunities to increase market penetration and continue our business growth in this region,” said Adam Garrard, head of international and international CRB. “Scott is an astute strategist who sees the future very clearly and aligns strategies accordingly. I am confident that he will apply these attributes in leading and strengthening the CRB teams in Asia, bringing superior solutions to our clients.”

Over the past two years, the company has seen strong growth in its CRB business in Asia, especially in North Asian markets, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

“For the next phase, we will continue to deepen our risk analytical and advisory capabilities, and deliver innovative and integrated solutions that will address the risk and people challenges our clients face,” Burnett said about his next steps as head of CRB.
