Willis Towers Watson announced the combination of Asia and Australasia operations

Willis Towers Watson has announced the combination of its Asia and Australasia operations into one Asia Pacific region, effective 1 January 2023.

As part of the combination, former Head of Australasia Simon Weaver has taken on the new role as Head of Asia Pacific, with Clare Muhiudeen to retire as Head of Asia from February.

Based in Australia, Weaver is responsible for driving business growth throughout the newly integrated region

Reporting to Pamela Thomson-Hall, Head of International at WTW, Simon will also continue to hold his existing role as Head of Corporate Risk and Broking (CRB) in Asia Pacific.

As clients navigate an increasingly complex and fast-shifting global economy, it is important that WTW maintains its agility and continues to adapt to these changing needs. The creation of a single Asia Pacific region will help to unlock potential synergies across markets and increase operational efficiency.
