Willis Group Holdings Limited announced the appointment of Douglas Roberts, the Former Treasurer of the State of Michigan, to its Board of Directors. He will chair the Audit Committee.
Roberts served two terms as Michigan Treasurer – from January 1991 to November 1998 and again from April 2001 to December 2002. Appointed by Governor John Engler, Roberts directed the state’s revenue and cash positions during a period of rebirth in Michigan’s finances and economy which included five ratings upgrades.
“By all account, Willis is a leader in the insurance marketplace,” Roberts said. “I am impressed with Joe Plumeri’s track record of building great companies and doing so with integrity and a strong management team. He seems to be on that same path here with Willis and I am pleased and honored to be joining Willis.”
