Will Re’s CEO Michael Harden has stepped down from the role to become chairman.
Cameron Green, the chief operating officer of seven years, has taken the reigns. Green will be joined in the leadership team by Ty Birkett and Karl Jones, who will both become managing directors. Jones has 17 years’ experience with Willis Re and Birkett joined Willis Re Australia in 2005.
Referring to the reasons behind the appointments, Harden said: “The organic growth of our business in recent years has been in large part due to the strength of our people and the culture within the organisation.”
“Our team and one-flag approach at Willis Re means that current and future leaders will also be drawn from a wider background than has traditionally been the case in reinsurance brokers, bringing wider opportunities throughout the organisation,” he added.
