As part of World’s executive leadership team, Woosley will support the growth of the company’s niche industry practice groups. His role includes developing new products and capabilities within existing practices and formalizing new industry practices to differentiate World in the marketplace and deliver value to clients in key growth segments.

With over 20 years of experience in sales and marketing leadership roles in the insurance and financial services industry, Woosley recently served as the senior vice president of broker management and sales operations at QBE North America.

Prior to that, he had a long-standing career at Aon plc, where he was vice president and head of marketing for Aon Risk Solutions US Retail. Woosley is a graduate of Truman State University.

Based in Chicago, Woosley assumed his new role at World on May 21, 2024.

Tom Fitzgerald, president of World’s retail business, welcomed Woosley into his new role.

“The complexity of risk in today’s world is increasing dramatically,” Fitzgerald said. “As we continue to focus on growing the firm, we need to capitalize on our specialty teams, and ensure our clients realize the full value and expertise these resources can provide. Thad’s experience will prove invaluable as we expand our capabilities into new industries. I am thrilled to have him join the team.”

“I am excited to join World’s practice leaders to further build on an already strong foundation of industry-focused teams. It’s an incredible opportunity to join World during this time of growth and to help make a difference for the team and their clients,” Woosley said.
