WILLIS TOWERS WATSON
Age: 33 Location: Ontario
In January 2017, Imran Pira was tapped by Willis Towers Watson to lead its newly formed Toronto-based FINEX practice, which operates within the corporate risk and broking divisions and focuses on financial and executive liability solutions that go beyond traditional D&O.
In this role, Pira has been tasked with restructuring the group and has established a dedicated team of brokers who service all executive risk lines, including cyber and financial institution products. Pira’s team now handles executive risk placement duties for Willis Towers Watson’s Montreal and Calgary offices as well.
Prior to joining WTW, Pira started his career with Marsh Canada and spent the better part of five years working in its FINPRO practice as a client advisor, where he developed his specialization in directors & officers liability and executive risk lines of insurance. More recently, he spent five years as an underwriter with AXIS Capital, where he was responsible for managing and underwriting the publicly traded commercial D&O portfolio.
Outside of his work at WTW, Pira volunteers with the Aga Khan Foundation, most recently serving as a Saturday schoolteacher for elementary students.
