Michael Burwell and His New Role as Chief Financial Officer for Willis Towers Watson

A bad leadership is what usually precludes the sustained success of any company. Fortunately, this is something that Willis Towers Watson is familiar with, which is probably the reason why it has decided to select a new Chief Financial Officer for its operations.



We all know that Willis Towers Watson is one of the globe’s leading global advisory agencies that are pushing the boundaries of what could be done in the brokerage and trading environments. The new choice of the company is Michael “Mike” J Burwell, who will replace the current Chief Financial Officer, Roger Millay. Millay has voluntarily retired from the company last October 2, 2017.

The Experience and Expertise



It is fascinating, and probably reassuring for Willis Towers Watson, to know that the new Chief Financial Officer they now have has at least 31 years of experience and expertise in the world of finance, with his professional services ranging from handling big companies’ portfolio and the assets of a multifarious series of investment brokers.



In 1977 Michael joined a partnership starting out as a transactional service at the PwC at the Detroit Brach. Burwell later on had served a senior leadership position for the last decade is also an added factor why he’s the most leading candidate for the position. It’s also public knowledge that Burwell is the Head of Global Transformation of a company once and used to be a COO and Chief Financial Officer for the United States government, which are also added factors why he could offer Willis Towers Watson the acumen that it requires from its operations head.




CEO of Willis Towers Watson’s Acknowledgment



Asked for a response about the new appointment, the CEO of Willis Towers Watson, John Haley, shared that to have Michael Burwell to join their leadership team is one of the most important and transformative decisions that the company has managed to make. There’s not that many decisions that could transform the future of a company, and this one right here, according to John, could belong to the category of decisions that will direct the company’s rightly deserved position in the future.



Another thing that could be said about the new position of Mr. Mike Burwell is the fact that Willis Towers Watson would be one of the most challenging companies he will be serving today, mainly because it has already built one of the most recognized and established global advisory companies that have been helping people manage risks in order to use these risks as opportunities for growth.
