The last few weeks of the year have been busy for the insurance industry, with several major carriers and regulatory bodies appointing new lead executives.

Willis Group Holdings’ Sarah Turvill has been appointed a Non-Executive Director to the Willis Limited Board and will start work January 2014, pending FCA approval.

The broker announced the move as Turvill prepares to retire as Chairman of Willis International at the end of 2013.

Turvill began her career at Willis in 1978 as a lawyer in the firm’s secretariat department. Since then, she was worked to support the company’s international development in Continental Europe, helping Willis secure a $1bn business overseas. Turvill was appointment Chairman of Willis International in 2011.


A former Marsh executive will lead the accident and health division at Chubb Group of Insurance Companies, the global insurer announced Wednesday.

Before his work with Marsh, Arms was CEO of the global benefits practice at Willis Group and spent 24 years at AIG in various leadership roles.


On the last day of its fall meeting, NAIC announced the election of its 2014 officers. North Dakota Insurance Commissioners Adam Hamm will serve as the group’s president, with Montana’s Monica Lindeen as president-elect and Pennsylvania’s Michael Consedine as vice president.
