WTW has appointed Sean Deehan (pictured above) as leader for Hong Kong and Macau effective Sept. 1. He will hold the position concurrently with his role as Hong Kong market leader for the company’s insurance consulting and technology business.

Deehan brings 25 years of experience in the insurance and pensions sector to his new role. Prior to joining WTW in January last year, Deehan was the CEO of a UK-owned life insurer in Hong Kong, where he led the successful sale of the business to the group’s Mainland China JV life insurance unit. He also served as a non-executive director of the JV insurer and supported its successful entry into the Chinese pension market.

“Hong Kong remains a major international financial centre in Asia, a gateway to and from Mainland China and a key market in our Greater Bay Area growth plans,” said Clare Muhiudeen, WTW head of Asia. “With the breadth and strength of WTW solutions, and the diverse and experienced leadership team in Hong Kong, Sean will lead our One WTW operations in Hong Kong to support companies here as the territory reopens following the pandemic.”

After the last few years of COVID restrictions, Deehan believed that post-pandemic recovery was in sight and was confident Hong Kong would “emerge stronger than ever” as it re-opened.

“We will continue to support our clients in strengthening their organisational and business resilience and uncovering opportunities for sustainable success,” he said.
