Willis appoints Netherlands office CEO


Willis has appointed Jeroen Everling as CEO of Willis in the Netherlands.

He takes up the role on June 1st and will replace interim CEO, Alistair Lester, who will continue to support Willis in a non-executive capacity.

Everling has almost 17 years’ experience in the insurance industry in a number of senior roles. He has been an executive director at Aon risk solutions since early 2006 and a member of the Aon Netherlands senior management team.

He has also held a variety of positions at Marsh, initially as a European practice leader and ultimately holding responsibility for the regional Dutch office network.

Commenting on the announcement, Alberto Gallego, regional CEO of Willis Western Europe, says: “Jeroen’s broad experience in a range of both domestic and international roles is the perfect background for leading a strong team in this strategically important and mature market, where we are uniquely positioned for growth.”

Everling will lead a team of around 100 Willis associates based in two offices - Beverwijk and the Amsterdam headquarters.

Gallego continues, “He brings with him exceptional client relationship experience and a really sharp focus on the customer. This background makes him the ideal candidate to locally deliver our global strategy of better connecting the Willis offering across product, industry and geography, providing holistic solutions for our clients.”
