Commenting on the appointments, Alexander Shepherd, Head of Facultative said: “I am excited by these appointments in our North America team and feel confident that we will continue to re-define facultative broking, using WTW’s leading data and analytics capabilities. We will continue to break down the traditional barriers that our competitors can’t see past to deliver unique products that will benefit our cedants.”

Michael Chang, Head of Corporate Risk and Broking, North America said: “In talking with our cedant customers across North America they are looking for greater value from their facultative brokers.

“At WTW we have invested heavily in our in-house analytics, which means we are uniquely placed to provide the advisory services that will enable our customers to buy their facultative covers far more strategically than they have in the past. Ivan, Chris, and Andy’s appointments are a key step for us in continuing to redefine the role of the facultative broker.”
