Willis Towers Watson, a leading global advisory, broking, and solutions company, today made two senior leadership changes, announcing Angel Hoover as its new Head of Benelux, and Joris Wonders as Head of Talent and Rewards (T&R) for Western Europe.
Hoover is based in Amstelveen, the Netherlands, and takes up her new role with immediate effect, subject to regulatory approval, implementing the company’s strategic vision and driving client satisfaction across the Benelux countries (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg).
Hoover joined Willis Towers Watson 12 years ago and has enjoyed working in a range of leadership roles both in her native US and across the Western Europe region. She has a strong understanding of the Dutch market, having been based in Amstelveen for five years in her roles as Head of Talent and Reward for Benelux, and Head of Talent Advisory, Data and Software for Western Europe. Her most recent role was as joint leader of T&R for Western Europe.
Joris Wonders has today been confirmed as the sole Head of T&R for Western Europe, which is a business he formerly co-led with Hoover. Wonders has held a series of leadership roles in T&R, including Rewards Line of Business Leader for Western Europe, and EMEA Practice Leader for Rewards. A Dutch national, he has also worked with the company in roles in France, Germany, and the UK.
Anne Pullum, Head of Western Europe, Willis Towers Watson, said: “These are two key appointments of committed leaders who will help ensure our ongoing success in the region. The Benelux countries hold solid growth potential for our wide range of client solutions, particularly for large and complex multinationals, and we are delighted that Angel will lead our strategy in these markets.”
Marco Boschetti, Head of Human Capital and Benefits (HCB) for the UK and Western Europe, Willis Towers Watson, said: “Our Talent and Rewards business has been on a strong growth trajectory in recent years, and we are excited that Joris will build on his outstanding work and leadership across Europe.”
