Willis Towers Watson has appointed Shai Ganu as executive compensation global practice leader, based in Singapore.
In his new role, Ganu will lead the global executive compensation team, which is composed of 400 consultants across six continents, according to a statement from the international broking and consultancy giant.
Ganu joined Willis Towers Watson in 2017 as managing director, talent & rewards for South Asia. The following year, he became managing director and rewards business leader, Asia-Pacific, before being appointed to his current position. Earlier in his career, he worked at Mercer in its talent consulting function.
“How executive pay is set, managed and communicated is becoming increasingly sensitive,” according to Ganu. “Executive pay programs have also become more complex. The evolution of corporate governance models around the world behooves us to support our clients’ boards and management teams to navigate these complex changes. I am excited for this opportunity to work with our colleagues globally and provide trusted advisory support to our clients to help balance the interests of all stakeholders.”
“Shai is a renowned expert and thought leader on issues related to executive compensation, board effectiveness and human-capital governance,” said Mark Reid, global head of rewards at Willis Towers Watson. “With his innovative mindset and experience working with both boards and management, Shai is extraordinarily well positioned to lead our team in helping clients design pay arrangements that are aligned with performance, balance the interests of key stakeholders and stand up to external scrutiny.”
