Willis Group Holdings plc has appointed Jeroen Everling as CEO of Willis Netherlands (Willis BV), effective June 1, replacing interim CEO Alistair Lester, who will continue to support Willis BV in a non-executive capacity.
Willis said: “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.”
Alberto Gallego, Regional CEO of Willis Western Europe, noted Everling’s “broad experience in a range of both domestic and international roles,” adding that it is the “the perfect background for leading a strong team in this strategically important and mature market, where we are uniquely positioned for growth.”
Gallego also thanked Lester, “who,” he said “leaves the Netherlands team in a very strong and stable position, confident about the future and with the full backing of Willis globally.”
Everling, who will lead a team of around 100 Willis Associates, based in two offices – Beverwijk and the Amsterdam headquarters –
