    Willis Re Appoints Kieran Angelini-Hurll as Regional Director of APMETA team

    London, UK , June 6, 2012 - Willis Re, the reinsurance arm of Willis Group Holdings (NYSE:WSH), the global insurance broker, today announced the appointment of Kieran Angelini-Hurll as Regional Director of its Indian Sub-Continent, Middle East, North Africa and Turkey operations.

    In this newly created role, Angelini-Hurll will be based in London with treaty reinsurance teams in Mumbai, Dubai and London reporting to him. These areas form part of the wider Willis Re Asia-Pacific, Middle East, Turkey and North Africa (APMETA) team headed by Maurice Williams in London.

    Angelini-Hurll joined Willis Re in 1994 and has served major insurance company and natural catastrophe scheme clients across a range of territories during this time, both from his current London base and from an extended secondment in Singapore. Having also led the Indian Sub-Continent team, his experience provides a broad appreciation of the challenges facing emerging market clients and the strategic use of reinsurance to assist with capital management and earnings volatility.

    Commenting on the appointment, Williams said: "With Kieran's extensive experience in emerging markets and long tenure in Willis Re, he is ideally positioned to ensure the full range of our service offering and value proposition is delivered to our clients in these key areas. Willis Re will continue to invest in building resources in these regions to match our clients' growth and their constantly evolving and increasingly sophisticated risk management needs."

    Commenting on the achievements and exciting potential for continued growth in the region, Angelini-Hurll said "I look forward to working closely with the regional offices and London team servicing our India, Middle East, North Africa and Turkey clients. These areas have delivered impressive growth for Willis Re in recent years, and I look forward to further expansion? as continued investment builds on our existing strong service capability."
