WTW has announced the appointment of Jon Oppenheim as the head of construction for Corporate Risk and Broking (CRB), North America.

Oppenheim brings over 20 years of experience in the construction industry and previously served as CRB North America's Southeast Region construction leader.

Oppenheim will lead WTW’s Industry Vertical Division (IVD) strategy.

WTW said that the IVD strategy is aligned with WTW's global line of business strategy, which aims to ensure that all colleagues within the Construction IVD bring specialized knowledge to manage clients' unique risk profiles.

“Earning the trust of our construction clients is based on the depth of our understanding of their unique risk profile. They clearly recognize and deeply appreciate the IVD strategy and the fact that every single member of the IVD team brings a specialized expertise within the world of construction. We are excited to continue utilizing the comprehensive IVD structure so that we can deliver optimal risk solutions,” Oppenheim said.

The Construction IVD operates through a global, national, and regional structure, which the broker highlights as ensuring that the team’s experts deliver safety plans, broking arrangements, risk engineering, and a data-driven approach to understanding specific situations.

Michael Chang, head of CRB NA, expressed confidence in Oppenheim's new role for the company.

“I am excited to support Jon as he steps into this new leadership role in North America. His robust knowledge of the construction industry and the unique challenges facing clients is a perfect fit for leading our Construction IVD on a national scale. I am confident that his knowledge will allow him to bring the best resources to meet client needs,” Chang said.
