Willis International chairman moves onto Willis board

Sarah Turvill has retired as chairman of Willis International, effective from the end of 2013. She will not act as non-executive director on the Willis board.

Turvill joined Willis in 1978 and has been particularly active in Europe, becoming chairman of Willis International in 2011.

Commenting on her departure as chairman of Willis International and her appointment to the Willis Limited Board, Steve Hearn, deputy group CEO said: "Sarah has been instrumental in growing Willis into the renowned global risk adviser, insurance and reinsurance broker it is today. She has led many of our overseas mergers and acquisitions this past 20 years, not least the growing relationship with Gras Savoye, which significantly enhances Willis's international presence.”

“I am delighted that following Sarah's retirement as Chairman of Willis International at the end of 2013, she has agreed to serve as a Non-Executive Director on the Willis Limited Board, ensuring that we continue to benefit from her combined insurance and M&A experience accumulated over many successful years with this company."
