November 10, 2009

Willis Europe BV, a division of Willis Group Holdings Limited, announced the appointment of Niek Post as Chief Executive Officer of its Dutch operations, effective immediately. He is based in Amsterdam and will report to Adam Garrard, CEO, Willis Continental Europe.

Post has more than 25 years of experience in the Dutch insurance market. He joins Willis from Aon Netherlands where he was most recently responsible for strategic global client relationships, with a particular focus on financial institutions.

Prior to joining Aon in 2007, Post was at ING Bank for 21 years where he served in a variety of roles, including Managing Director of the bank’s Insurance & Risk Consultancy within the Wholesale Banking division. Post began his career in 1980 at Heerkens Thijssen & Caviet Insurance Brokers in Amsterdam.

Garrard welcomed Post to Willis, indicating that his “strong banking and insurance background made him “ideally positioned to lead our team in the Netherlands, and to leverage the Group’s global resources to develop local insurance solutions for our clients there.”

Post noted that the Netherlands offers “great growth opportunities for Willis,” particularly in the areas of “Employee Benefits, Executive Risks and Marine. I look forward to driving our business strength in these areas, but also to developing new business in other sectors.”
