Michael Chang, former CEO of Sompo International’s Global Risk Solutions, will be joining WTW as head of Corporate Risk and Broking (CRB) North America, later in 2022. He will become a member of the company’s Global Leadership Team.

Chang was at Sompo for six years, also serving as co-leader Global Insurance. Before that, he spent nearly 20 years at Chubb, where he held various senior roles, primarily in the large account space, including the leadership of Chubb’s Commercial Insurance Global Risk Management Group and Global Real Estate Unit.

Adam Garrard, head of CRB, said that Chang “has a formidable reputation and a global perspective across the spectrum of both underwriting and distribution that will be of immense value to us. In particular, his experience of developing both industry and product specialization will help accelerate our strategy across North America, driving better outcomes for our clients.”

Mike Liss, who currently serves as head of CRB North America, has announced his intention to retire in mid-2023 after 16 years with WTW.
