Willis Towers Watson adds senior director

Anne Swift was named senior director at Willis Towers Watson, a spokesman said in an email.

The position is new. Ms. Swift focuses on defined contribution plans within the advisory investment services team in London, following a team expansion, the spokesman said.

"(Ms. Swift plays) a key role in leading some of our client relationships, as well as contributing to the continued development of our market-leading DC investment proposition," said David Aleppo, head of advisory investment services, in a news release.

Ms. Swift was director and head of DC investment at KPMG U.K., where she advised clients on all aspects of their DC investments, including strategy, default design, fund selection and investment monitoring. A spokesman could not be reached to comment about a replacement.
