Willis Group Holdings has appointed Seth Peller to global head of casualty. The newly created role is effective January 2014.

Reporting to Dominic Samengo-Turner, global head of broking and products, Peller will be responsible for building Willis’ Casualty portfolio, and help ensuring the global risk adviser insurance and reinsurance broker connects all of its resources to offer clients a holistic solution. Peller has more than 20 years’ experience in the insurance industry, most recently serving as CEO of Willis Argentina.

“Seth brings considerable experience from his wholesale, placement and international work and is well positioned to develop our global casualty business,” Samengo-Turner said. “Seth and the other global product leaders will work with the newly appointed global heads of industry and with existing regional and office leaders around Willis to bring the full breadth of Willis’ expertise and capabilities to clients around the world.”

Working closely with other industry and product heads, and the retail leadership in individual regions and countries, Peller will build a team of Casualty experts and establish a stronger, more coordinated regional casualty presence in the various territories in which Willis operates.

“The focus for Casualty will be in North America, but this move represents a great opportunity to further develop the business globally,” said Peller. “I will be building a team that uses Willis´ Casualty expertise to develop new and enhance existing client relationships across all targeted industries. Working with global carriers through our centers of excellence will enable us to bring innovative product development to best meet our clients’ needs.”
