WTW snaps up claims hire from Aon


By Terry Gangcuangco

WTW has hired Aon global chief claims officer Neil Harrison as global head of claims.

Taking on the post at the end of the month, the global claims leader will report to global head of risk & broking Adam Garrard. At WTW, Harrison will focus on all aspects of the company’s claims proposition, from delivering enhanced claims services to aligning claims teams in specialist industry practices.

“Claims are not only a key component of our service offering to clients but also play an integral part in our Smarter Ways to Risk proposition, delivering specialisation, exceptional client service, data, and analytics – directly aligned with core WTW market strengths and growth priorities,” Garrard said in a release sent to Insurance Business.

He added that the announcement points to the brokerage’s commitment to investing and attracting talent for the long-term future of our business while reinforcing the strength of WTW’s risk & broking strategy.

“Bringing a distinguished track record in leading the delivery of global claims services, Neil will be a valuable addition to our leadership team,” Garrard commented further.

The appointment comes on the heels of Julien Bosc’s move from Aon to WTW to serve as the latter’s first-ever global specialty director within the insurance consulting & technology unit.

“With Julien’s wealth of industry knowledge and expertise, we’re delighted to have him on the WTW global specialty team,” global market leader Richard Clarkson said in March.

“This senior appointment demonstrates our commitment to invest in industry-leading talent and further expand the scope of our consulting & technology solutions to help clients excel in the London, Singapore, and Bermuda specialty markets that are undergoing such profound change.”

WTW serves 140 countries and markets across the areas of people, risk, and capital.
