Willis Towers Watson names Tammy Richardson UK & Ireland Leader for its Insurance Consulting and Technology business
Willis Towers Watson has announced that Tammy Richardson will take on the role of UK and Ireland Leader for Life and P&C in the company’s Insurance Consulting and Technology business...
Richardson most recently served as leader of the UK P&C team within the same business.
Colin Forrest, Regional Leader for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) in the company’s Insurance Consulting and Technology business, said: “I am delighted to announce that Tammy will be taking on the role of UK and Ireland Leader, with immediate effect. Insurers today must balance a wide range of competing demands and risks, with swiftly changing technological capabilities at centre stage, and Tammy has the business leadership skills, deep industry experience and breadth of knowledge to lead the UK and Ireland team successfully over the coming years as this period of market disruption presents us with ever-evolving opportunities and challenges.”
Richardson has over 25 years of experience in the insurance industry, spanning a range of senior leadership roles across P&L management, strategy, M&A, business development, finance and risk management. Before joining Willis Towers Watson in 2012, Tammy was a Senior Vice President and Managing Director at Genworth Financial leading the firm’s commercial and strategic development team.
Commenting on her new appointment, Richardson said: “I am excited to be taking on this new role at a time when the rate of change for the insurance industry is unlike anything we’ve seen before. This brings with it new challenges, but also many new opportunities – particularly in the space of Artificial Intelligence and automation. I look forward to continuing to work with our talented insurance consulting and technology team to deliver solutions that will help our clients to quickly adapt and transform their operations in order to take advantage of emerging opportunities for profitable growth.”
At the same time of Richardson’s appointment, Stephen Jones is also transferring from his existing role as UK Head of P&C Pricing, Claims, Product and Underwriting at Willis Towers Watson to move into Richardson’s former role as UK P&C Leader.
