UK insurance brokerage and advisory firm Willis Towers Watson has made Ted Hodgkinson its permanent leader for Hong Kong and Macau after serving in the role in an interim capacity since October.
He succeeds Roger Steel, who retired in September.
He also keeps his position as head of corporate risks and broking for Hong Kong and Macau.
Hodgkinson will lead Willis Towers Watson’s 300-plus employees in the two locations, working closely with business leaders from various segments of companies to facilitate service delivery, innovation and growth, the firm says in a statement on November 25.
He reports to Clare Muhiudeen, the head of Asia, who says in the statement that she is confident he “will continue delivering on our vision and priorities, and position WTW for a successful future in our markets”.
Hodgkinson has more than 20 years of asset management experience in Asia. He joined Willis Towers Watson in 2018 from Safety Insurance in Thailand.
