John Haley, former CEO of Willis Towers Watson PLC, Tuesday was named an executive partner at Thomas H. Lee Partners L.P., a Boston-based private-equity firm.

Mr. Haley joins THL’s financial technology and services investment group, which to date has deployed $10.3 billion of capital and acquired 32 companies, the firm said in a statement.

He has also been appointed to the board of THL portfolio company AmeriLife Group LLC.

Mr. Haley became CEO of WTW in 2016 and stepped down in 2021 after the broker’s proposed merger with Aon PLC was called off. He had planned to retire after the merger.

Clayton Dubilier & Rice LLC, a New York-based private-equity firm, announced last month that it had named Dan Glaser, former president and CEO of Marsh & McLennan Cos. Inc., as an operating partner.
