Willis Towers Watson establishes North America Public Entity practice

ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ:WLTW), a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company, has established a North America Public Entity practice under the leadership of Mark Goode.

The Public Entity practice will provide risk management, consulting and insurance brokerage services to a broad range of entities including state governments, municipalities, educational institutions and governmental pooling organizations. They will also deliver dedicated claim advocacy, loss control and ergonomics services along with industry-specific analytical tools, and human capital and benefit consulting.

Charlotte-based Goode joined Willis Towers Watson in 2004 and has since been serving as senior vice president of the company’s Atlantic and South region Public Entity practice. He will be responsible for business development and coordinating all services and specialty products across the platform, while building a world-class team of public entity risk and insurance professionals.

“Willis Towers Watson is committed to the public entity sector and already had a strong track record of success in serving government entities in select markets,” said Goode. “By establishing a national practice, we are formalizing this specialty business in our portfolio with the aim of delivering a finely tuned strategy and coordinated resources to better serve clients, while increasing our share of this important market.”

“Today public entities are confronted with a complex and evolving risk environment combined with heightened public scrutiny and tighter budgets. These entities have unique risk profiles that demand customized solutions. Willis Towers Watson, with its deep expertise, strong market position and custom analytical tools, stands ready to deliver for the public sector,” continued Goode.

“We are thrilled to have Mark lead the national practice and we look forward to building on our success and momentum in this space,” said Todd Jones, co-leader of Willis Towers Watson’s North American business. “His expertise, client-focus and strong market relationships can all be directed for the benefit of clients, while we expand our market share in this sector.”
