Willis Towers Watson boss Aubert reappointed as LMG chair

The London Market Group (LMG) has reappointment Nicolas Aubert, head of Great Britain for Willis Towers Watson, as its chairman for another term.

Aubert was first appointed in April 2016, succeeding Steve Hearn, chief executive officer of Ed, who held the role for two years.

"I am delighted that I can continue to lead the LMG for another year and would like to thank the Board for their ongoing support and commitment," Aubert commented. "The last 12 months has seen real progress across all of our workstreams.

"Particular highlights include our modernisation work taking a crucial step forward with the launch of PPL and our ILS work moving closer to fruition, so that London can expand its product offering."

Aubert leads Great Britain at Willis Towers Watson, and is the CEO of Willis Limited, the group’s principal UK regulated entity. Previously, he served as the CEO of Willis Great Britain.

Prior to joining Willis, he served as the COO of AIG in Europe, Middle East and Africa, and formerly managing director of AIG in the UK.

Aubert added: "The curve ball of 2016 was Brexit, but this has given us both opportunities and challenges. I am delighted to say that we are working very closely with the government to both protect our businesses and make positive changes that will allow our unique marketplace to grow and thrive.

"We will shortly be releasing the latest data on the position of the London Market, and I am sure this will spark more debate on the way forward. We have a window of opportunity to make some substantial strides to increase our competitiveness, and I am delighted that I will be able to continue working with all sectors of the market to grow and enhance London’s position and reputation."
