Willis Group is expanding its global wealth solutions practice in Hong Kong with the appointment of Ivy Suen as managing director and head of sales, North Asia in November 2013.
Suen will report to Yves Guelat, chief executive of global wealth solutions.
Suen joins Willis from wealth solutions firm International Planning Group where she has spent eight years as senior vice president serving ultra-high net worth clients and developing and managing commercial relationships and sales channels. Prior to that, she held senior business development roles with HSBC and Royal Bank of Canada in Hong Kong.
Adam Garrard, Willis Asia CEO, says: "We are delighted to have Ivy joining the team in Hong Kong. Her skills, experience and network will be an invaluable asset in our ambitious plans for growth in Asia. Since establishing our global wealth solutions practice 18 months ago, our team has grown significantly and we will continue on that growth path as we roll out a full range of products to help high-net-worth individuals manage and protect their wealth."
