Global advisory, broking, and solutions company Willis Towers Watson (WTW) announced the appointment of Sean Deehan as Leader for Hong Kong and Macau, effective September 1, 2022.
A veteran in life insurance, health insurance and pensions experience, Sean will also continue in his current position as Hong Kong Market Leader for WTW’s Insurance Consulting & Technology (ICT) business.
Sean joined WTW in January last year to develop and grow the ICT business in Hong Kong. Before joining WTW, Sean was the CEO of a UK-owned life insurer in Hong Kong where he led the transaction to sell the business to the group’s Mainland China JV life insurance unit. He also served as a non-executive director of the JV insurer and supported its successful entry into the Chinese pension market.
“Sean will lead our One WTW operations in Hong Kong to support companies here as the territory reopens following the pandemic,” said Clare Muhiudeen, Head of Asia, WTW on Sean’s appointment.
Hong Kong is considered as a major international financial centre in Asia, a gateway to and from Mainland China, and a key market in our Greater Bay Area growth plans.
“Business and Hong Kong have started reopening after the last few years of Covid restrictions and we are confident that Hong Kong will emerge stronger than ever,’ said Sean.
Sean holds an Executive MBA, Business Administration and Management from INSEAD, a BSc degree in Mathematics and Statistics from the University of St Andrews, Scotland.
