WTW names heads of Asia construction, energy businesses

WTW has made two leadership appointments to its natural resources and construction lines of business in Asia, with Nicki Tilney (pictured above) as head of construction, power and renewables and George Nassaouati as head of energy.

Tilney will take on a newly created role that was created to better align the key needs within the construction, power and renewable energy sectors, WTW said. She will be responsible for leading the construction, power and renewable strategies across Asia and deliver seamless service to clients throughout the life of their projects. Tilney will join from Aon, where she is head of construction, power and infrastructure in Asia.

Nassaouati (pictured directly above), currently heads WTW’s Asia natural resources business. In his new role, he will lead the development and management of the upstream and downstream energy portfolio.  He joined WTW in 2018 and was with JLT and Marsh earlier in his career.

“We are delighted to welcome Nicki to the WTW team,” said Pamela Thomson-Hall, head of international at WTW. “She is a respected industry professional whose experience and skill set complements our existing talent pool across the construction, power and renewable energy sectors. Attracting experienced and market-leading talent such as Nicki underpins our growth objective and enhances our deep industry insights in the Asia region. Importantly, both Nicki and George’s appointments demonstrate our commitment to diversity and in bringing the best talent to support our corporate risk and broking businesses globally.”

With these changes, Nassaouati and Tilney will co-head WTW’s natural resources business in Asia.
