Howden has appointed Adam Reed as managing director, corporate client relations, in a move that sees the international broker build out its global proposition for major corporate clients.
Reed will join Howden once he completes his contractual obligations with Willis Towers Watson, where he was most recently global client relationship director. Reed, who had previously worked at Marsh and Aon, has over 25 years of experience managing large, complex, global client relationships. He will become part of Howden UK’s leadership team as a member of its executive committee.
According to Howden, Reed will focus on building new and developing existing relationships with large corporate clients, drawing from the company’s specialist expertise and global broking network.
“Multinational clients increasingly recognise that they don’t have to go for the same two or three brokers – they have choice, and they are choosing us,” said Chris Evans, deputy CEO of Howden in the UK. “So I’m delighted that Adam, too, has chosen Howden. His experience will be invaluable in helping us really make our mark by bringing a fresh, differentiated approach to the large and complex account space.”
“Through our commitment to entrepreneurship, we have built a company that attracts the best talent worldwide and trusts its people to develop solutions that are shaped around what’s best for their clients,” said José Manuel González, group CEO of Howden Broking. “It’s a fantastic time for Adam to join; we’re already proving our value to many multinationals and look forward to further reinforcing our position as the independent alternative.”
