Willis Towers Watson (WTW) has appointed Aongus O’Gorman to head its Australian investments team, succeeding Martin Goss who has returned to full-time consulting work after five years in the role.
O’Gorman was currently head of delegated and specialist solutions for investments Australia and would start in his new role on 1 August, 2021.
WTW Asia pacific head of investments, Taro Ogai, said: “Aongus has been responsible for our Australian delegated business for most of his six years with WTW, which has seen us deliver a new service to the market and acquire many new client relationships.
“Over the 25 years of his career, Aongus has been an asset owner, asset manager and investment consultant. This broad range of experience ideally places him to lead our investment team in Australia.”
O’Gorman said it was an exciting time to take on the opportunity.
“Over the last few years, we have augmented our traditional asset consulting with strategic advisory and delegated solutions because we firmly believed it was in the best interests of clients and would help meet their future needs,” he said.
“Martin has brought together a highly capable and energetic team in Australia that is backed by significant global resources. It is something that resounds very positively with our clients and I look forward to continuing that."
