The Willis Towers Watson is one of the largest advisory firms in the world. The company was founded in 1828, and through the years of operation, they managed to keep their performance and reputation, resulting to the constant rise in the number of clients that they serve. In 2017, the company hired Michael J. Burwell as their newest chief financial officer. Michael Burwell replaced the company’s former CFO who retired last October 2017. Michael J. Burwell worked with the Price Waterhouse Coopers for decades, and when he heard about the new job being offered at the Willis Towers Watson, he did not hesitate to apply for the job. He proudly emphasized in his resume that his 30-years’ experience as a financial expert would make significant changes within the company, especially with its financial department.
The retirement of Roger Millay in October 2017 made a huge impact in the company’s steady growth, and it is the reason why they had to find the best man for the job as soon as possible. The vacated position is important in the development of the company, and when the board of directors found out about Michael Burwell, they immediately hired him. They knew that he would be able to manage the company’s financial assets, and he could also emulate what his predecessor did for the benefit of the company. The people who have chosen him stated that experience is what matters most when looking for someone who would be handling the position of the chief financial officer. Without having the proper experience, the job could not be properly executed.
John Haley, the company’s present CEO, expressed his excitement right after they found out that Michael J. Burwell was the person chosen for the job. He has seen some of his records, and he is looking forward to meeting the newest addition to their team. He proudly stated that the Willis Towers Watson is only looking for the best people who would be serving the company, and Michael J. Burwell being one of those. John Haley, along with other senior officers of the Willis Towers Watson, will be guiding their newest chief financial officer about the things that need to be done.
The Willis Towers Watson has expanded its presence overseas. Since its establishment around 200 years ago, the company managed to open up small satellite offices in more than 140 countries around the world. Today, there are over 40,000 people who are working for the Willis Towers Watson.
