Willis Towers Watson has appointed Leng Leng Ng (pictured left) as country leader for Singapore, succeeding Vivek Nath (pictured right), who has been tasked with heading the corporate risk and broking (CRB) business in South Asia.

According to Willis Towers Watson’s statement, Ng’s new role will be concurrent to her position as head of CRB in Singapore. Meanwhile, Nath will operate in a dual capacity as head of South Asia, which encompasses the countries in ASEAN and the Indian subcontinent.

Ng has 17 years of experience in insurance broking and underwriting from Singapore and across Asia. She has been with WTW for three years, having headed a team of risk advisors in Singapore and she worked closely with corporate clients to address their risk challenges through providing effective risk transfer solutions.

Nath has more than two decades of professional services and client management experience with public and private sector clients in Singapore, India, China, and Southeast Asia. In the last 14 years with WTW, he had held several leadership positions in the company, including managing director for the business in India, Malaysia, Singapore, and South Asia.

“The South Asian countries, including Singapore, continue to be key markets in our Asia portfolio, and one where we hold significant opportunities for strategic growth,” said Scott Burnett, head of Asia and head of CRB Asia, Willis Towers Watson. “At the same time, we continue to grow our regional talent base and expertise by adding new leaders throughout our organisation in Asia. Both Leng Leng and Vivek bring extensive experience and diversity to complement our team of experienced leaders. Their new and additional roles will enhance our advisory and execution capabilities, strengthening the delivery of our client offerings and innovative risk management solutions to help clients stay resilient and navigate a rapidly evolving landscape in Asia.”
