Willis Re Specialty is a premier broker that has grown its market share over the past two years. It has augmented and retained its intellectual capital, further proving its commitment to clients. I am tremendously looking forward to adding to the success of Willis Re and serving its clients’ needs now and in the future.”

Graeme Moore, CEO of Willis Re Global Specialty said: “'The addition of Printhan to our growing and talented team is an exciting strategic development for Willis Re Specialty, combining our transactional excellence with a forward thinking and proactive analytical approach.

"As the reinsurance market and our clients evolve it is essential that our offering embodies the full suite of analytics, instead of the traditional model of being supported by analytics. Printhan already has a proven track record in this area and we are delighted to have him on board.”
