August 25, 2015

Willis Group Holdings has appointed Toby Wemyss as global head of placement, effective immediately.

He succeeds David Martin, who will be leaving the company.

In this role, Wemyss will drive the continuing development of Willis’ global placement strategy, leading the firm’s worldwide network of placement leaders, the company said in a statement.

Wemyss has spent 15 years with the Willis Group in a number of leadership roles, most recently CEO of Willis’s CEMEA (Central Europe, Middle East and Africa) operations. He began his career at Willis in 2000 as a property broker in its Global Property & Casualty division.

“Willis’ global placement capabilities and services are central to the firm’s client value proposition,” said Dominic Casserley, CEO of Willis Group, adding that that Wemyss’ experience and knowledge of the global wholesale and retail broking markets make him ideally placed “to bring the best of the company’s talent, expertise and capabilities to clients.”
