Re/insurance broker Willis Towers Watson (WTW) has announced the appointment of Johan Forsgård as the leader of its new Nordics region structure.
As Head of the Nordics, he will manage the newly formed region consisting of Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Norway.
Forsgård was previously Head of Sweden and Finland at WTW, having held that position since 2016.
He joined the company in 2005 and has worked in a range of leadership positions, becoming Head of Sweden in 2012.
“Johan is a dynamic and committed leader, and this new role enables him to build on his many successes in the region,” said Anne Pullum, Head of Western Europe at WTW.
“We have established a strong reputation in the Nordics, and clients there have shown a growing appetite for our wide range of global solutions.”
Forsgård also commented: “I am honoured to be given the chance to lead the Nordic region, where we have very strong businesses, and excellent people and leaders.
“I know our Nordics businesses well from my long career with the company, and I have a strong background in our corporate risk and broking business,” he added.
“We are well positioned to accelerate our existing strategy and deliver value to our clients in the shape of a more integrated Nordic team.”
