“Since forming Willis Towers Watson 10 months ago, we have made tremendous progress,” Willis Towers Watson CEO John Haley said in the statement. “These appointments and changes reflect what our clients and the market expect of us, as well as what it will take to drive our business forward and deliver strong performance longer term.”
