The multinational risk management, advisory, and insurance brokerage firm Willis Towers Watson announced in a press release that they had brought on board Michael Burwell as their new chief financial officer, replacing Roger Millay who has announced he plans to retire voluntarily. Michael Burwell has 31 years of experience in personal services and finance that he acquired at the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers. For the past decade, he has occupied senior leadership positions at PWC including chief operating officer, head of global transformation, chief financial officer, and head of transaction services in the United State.

 

Michael Burwell was welcomed to the team by Willis Towers Watson’s Chief Executive Officer John Haley. John Haley said that Mike is a great addition to his senior management team and will help take the company to the next level. He added that Michael Burwell has a keen understanding of managing and making results happen in a multinational and complex firm.

Michael Burwell completed his college education at Michigan State University. After earning his Bachelor of Arts in business administration he earned his CPA designation. He said that in his new role at Willis Towers Watson he will be heavily involved in rolling out their new investment management service, AMX, to the clients of this company. He said that this rollout first occurred in Europe and was just released in the United States. He said this service will help both big and small money managers reduce both the compliance and aggregation processes which will be extremely helpful in saving them both time and money. See This Article for additional information.

 

He says that he has a number of career accomplishments he is proud of. Perhaps the one that Michael Burwell is most proud of is the time he was tasked with increasing the efficiency and lowering the costs of a professional services firm while he was its CFO. Burwell was able to eliminate $500 million in costs which was a big accomplishment but even more impressive he was able to do so without axing a single job.
