RELATED TOPICS​

Towers Watson has appointed Chris Ford as global head of the company’s investment business, effective immediately. 

He succeeds Carl Hess who, after holding the position since July 2008, has assumed the role of managing director of the Americas region and joins the company’s executive committee.
 
Tricia Guinn, managing director of risk and financial services at Towers Watson, says: “Chris is an extremely talented individual who is very well placed to succeed Carl and to continue building a strong global business. Chris has proven himself to be very capable – both strategically and operationally – at propelling the business forward and delivering strong growth and excellent results for our clients.”
 
Ford (pictured) joined Towers Watson 23 years ago and has held numerous leadership roles during that time, most recently heading the company’s investment business in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
