The team is led by Philip Smaje, Global Head of Broking, and consists of broking leaders across four broad global lines of business and Willis Towers Watson’s four main geographic regions, alongside specialist leaders for carrier management, data and strategy services.

The leadership appointments include: P&C – Justin Blackmore; Financial Lines – Steve Pincus (FINEX) and Emma Coffin (Financial Solutions); Transportation – Ian Savill (Aerospace) and Phil Jacobs (Marine); Facultative – Henry Lawrence; North America – Joe Peiser; Great Britain – Clyde Bernstein; Western Europe – Ghassan Mansour; International – Cliff Jeyes (Asia, Australasia and CEMA) and Marcelo Daniel (Latin America).
As well as these main line of business and regional broking leaders Willis Towers Watson has also named: Andrew. D. Jackson – Global Head of Carrier Management; Simon Gaffney – Chief Data Officer with responsibility for CRB Broking Data; Praveen Panicker – Head of Broking Strategy; and Rachael Jenner – Broking Development Manager.

Our new broking organisation aligns with our broader Corporate Risk and Broking structure and is designed to support and help build out our global lines of business and geographies to enhance delivery, execution and the overall client experience.”
