Willis Group Appoints Gioia Ghezzi As COO

Insurance broker Willis Group Holdings plc (WSH) said Monday that it has appointed Gioia Ghezzi as Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately.

In her new role, Ghezzi will oversee a number of corporate functions and manage a global structure designed to drive revenue growth and increase operational efficiencies across the Group. She succeeds Tim Wright, now the CEO of Willis International, who served in the Chief Operating Officer role for four years.

Ghezzi joins Willis Group most recently from McKinsey & Co, where she spent 11 years as partner and leader of the Insurance and Health practices providing advice on company strategy, operations, and performance transformation to a large number of global clients.

Willis Group also said that Adam Rosman will be appointed Group General Counsel, overseeing the Group's worldwide legal, compliance, risk, corporate secretary, and audit functions.

Rosman has served as Group Deputy General Counsel and General Counsel for Willis North America for the past three years. He succeeds Adam Ciongoli, who is leaving the company in May to serve as General Counsel of Lincoln Financial Group.

Ghezzi will be based at the Willis building in London while Rosman will remain in New York.
