Willis Towers Watson makes triple swoop from Marsh

Willis Towers Watson (WTW) has added new faces to its financial institutions business in Canada, as part of its expansion.

The global advisory has appointed Susan Finbow as head of the financial institutions industry in Canada; Alexandra Kindbom as Canada head of FINEX financial institutions; and Andrew Brown as FINEX financial institutions lead relationship manager.

All three appointees will be based in Toronto and will report to both WTW FINEX financial institutions global head Allison Barrett and WTW head of corporate risk and broking in Canada John Haas.

Finbow will be in charge of supervising a growth strategy for the Canadian region in her new role, and will assist with creating risk solutions and alternative risk financing strategies for financial institutions across the FINEX and P&C product lines, a release said.

Kindbom, meanwhile, will oversee all FINEX and P&C placements in Canada for financial institutions, offering strategic direction to regional clients.

Brown will be servicing a portfolio of large and complex clients, in addition to administering new business development. He will also help drive the sales process to expand client relationships for the company.

The three were all previously associated with Marsh Canada. Finbow was most recently a managing director, having held various positions such as financial institutions industry practice leader. Kindbom served as managing director and was a leading advisor on financial lines risk. Brown held senior vice-president roles in financial lines, financial institutions, and professional services.

“We are delighted to announce the appointments of Susan, Lexie and Andrew — all industry veterans and highly experienced specialists who are empowered to pioneer new risk solutions within our firm,” commented Barrett, who added that as WTW grows its financial institutions capabilities across Canada, the firm is committed to investing in “outstanding talent.”
