Willis Towers Watson, the global advisory, broking and solutions company, announced that its board of directors has extended the contract of its chief executive officer, John Haley, until Jan. 1, 2021.
“We are pleased to retain John Haley’s leadership as CEO of Willis Towers Watson,” said James McCann, chairman of the WTW board. “Over the last several years, the company has made tremendous progress and delivered on many of the expectations of the merger. The board is pleased with our momentum and sees a vibrant future ahead.”
Haley has been with the company since 1977 and was named CEO in 1998. Under his leadership, the company went public in 2000, and completed three mergers, in 2005, 2010 and 2016, which formed present-day Willis Towers Watson.
“It’s been a privilege to lead Willis Towers Watson. I’m incredibly proud of the commitment and energy demonstrated by the company’s more than 40,000 colleagues worldwide,” said Haley. “I am grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve our clients, and I am excited about our long-term prospects.”
He said he would be working with the board on planning his succession after his extended term ends.
