Willis Towers Watson has announced a new senior hire for its business in Asia Pacific.

Matt Houghton has joined the firm as a senior consultant of strategy in its insurance consulting and software business in the region as the firm looks to build on its consulting services for the insurance industry.

In the newly created role, Houghton will consult the industry on strategic development, distribution and M&A opportunities.

Prior to joining Willis Towers Watson, Houghton was head of strategic transformation at AmMetLife Insurance, a Malaysian joint venture between MetLife and AmBank Group. He previously spent time with MetLife, AXA and Aviva.
