Willis Re has named David Schoenrock as its executive vice president and head of global accounts for Willis Re North America.
He will take up his position officially on December 23.
Schoenrock has 17 years’ experience at Guy Carpenter, before which he spent another 17 years at General Re.
He will divide his time between New York and Stamford, focusing on liaising with the senior executive teams of major US clients and prospects. Schoenrock will work across Willis Re’s broking, actuarial, and modelling teams to set and execute strategy for North American based global accounts. He will also mentor colleagues in both offices and assist with product design and development for Willis Re’s global clients.
Jim Bradshaw, CEO of Willis Re North America, said his “considerable experience and stellar reputation in the market will allow him to immediately plug into our major account portfolio and across the broader Willis Re. He will provide critical assistance to our efforts to grow our footprint and attract new clients in this space.”
Schoenrock reports to Doug May, who is concurrently promoted to president of Willis Re North America. May’s role as manager of Willis Re’s North America business segments and a member of the NA Executive Committee remain unchanged.
May joined Willis Re in 2007 following 12 years at Guy Carpenter.
Bradshaw called May “an outstanding performer,” and “a driving force in the successful launch of our recent Wildfire Model,” who has been a key driver in client and prospect focused risk management and mitigation projects.
