Willis names global technology, media and telecommunications leader


Willis Group Holdings P.L.C. has named Sara Benolken as its global industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications.

Ms. Benolken is leading the new technology, media and telecommunications group that will provide clients with access to Willis’ industry experts, insurance products and risk management services, the broker said Tuesday.

Prior to accepting the new position, Ms. Benolken was the industry leader for technology, media and telecommunications at Willis North America Inc. She has been advising clients in that industry since she joined Willis in 2007, Willis said in a statement.

“As recent trends have shown, today’s global technology companies may well become tomorrow’s leading media companies,” Ms. Benolken said. “As firms’ business models, manufacturing processes or geographic footprints evolve, their needs for innovative risk management solutions must evolve just as quickly.”

Ms. Benolken is based in Austin, Texas.
