Willis Towers Watson names head of Asia business

Willis Towers Watson (WTW) has appointed Clare Muhiudeen (pictured above) as head of Asia, based in Hong Kong. She succeeds Scott Burnett, who was appointed chief commercial officer for global risk and broking operations.

A 30-year veteran of human capital consulting, Muhiudeen is responsible for driving business growth and directing the company’s client and colleague experience across its various business segments in Asia. She reports to Pamela Thomson-Hall, head of international at WTW.

Previously, Muhiudeen was WTW’s international head of human capital and benefits, working with multinational companies in a range of sectors, including engineering, airlines, luxury brands, telecommunications and professional services. She has been with the company for 18 years.

“Clare is an accomplished and inspiring leader in the organisation,” Thomson-Hall said. “Her diverse experience and insights on the emerging markets, managing complex strategic reward, talent and change programmes uniquely placed her to take up this position. In addition, Clare brings with her a collaborative, client-first culture that will enable us to deliver superior advice, broking and solutions in the areas of people, risk and capital to our clients in Asia. Being a Malaysian, Clare also understands the Asian region well and is dedicated not only to our clients across our business segments, but to advancing our inclusion and diversity programmes in WTW.”
