Willis Towers Watson has named Pamela Thomson-Hall as the head of the Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Africa (CEEMEA) region.
Concurrently, Thomson-Hall has also been appointed as head of corporate risk and broking (CRB) for the CEEMEA region. She begins both roles with immediate effect and is based in London.
In her new position, she will be responsible for driving business growth across a diverse geographic region of more than 40 countries, with a focus on client engagement and innovation.
Meanwhile, her CRB role will involve setting strategic and operational direction for an extensive and established network of risk advisory and broking businesses.
Thomson-Hall has been with Willis Towers Watson for nearly 20 years, most recently serving as managing director of international. She initially joined the firm as general counsel for the international region of Willis, a position she held for almost 15 years, before leading the teams involved in the acquisition and integration of major French broker Gras Savoye. She then became chief of staff for the international region of Willis Towers Watson.
She is also chair of Willis Towers Watson’s international council for inclusion and diversity.
Adam Garrard, head of international at Willis Towers Watson, commented: “Pamela is a proven leader who brings dynamism, global experience and strategic vision to this diverse and complex region. We see a lot of potential for growth in the many different markets of CEEMEA, and Pamela’s role is to ensure that clients and prospects, both local and multinational, understand what we are truly capable of.”
Thomson-Hall remarked: “Having worked for many years at Willis Towers Watson across this broad geographical area, with our extensive African footprint and insurance distribution network, I am delighted to be leading this extraordinary team of dynamic and experienced colleagues in the delivery of our combined value proposition to our local and multinational clients."
