WTW has announced the appointment of Frank Schepers (pictured above) to lead its Insurance Consulting & Technology (ITC) business. Schepers will be based in Germany and will join WTW’s risk and broking segment leadership team. He succeeds Alice Underwood, who is retiring this year. Schepers will assume his new role in the coming weeks, following a handover period with Underwood.
Schepers has been with WTW and its predecessor companies since 1994, when he joined as a consultant. He has held several senior leadership roles in ICT during his tenure, including risk and consulting software leader for Germany and then northern and central Europe. He served as head of ICT for the EMEA region between 2015 and 2018 before taking on a new role leading major, strategic projects for some of WTW’s top clients.

“We are delighted to have appointed Frank to lead our ICT business globally, following a thorough internal and external search for Alice’s successor,” said Adam Garrard, head of risk and broking at WTW. “Frank has been instrumental in expanding ICT’s services and embedding the important links between the business’s consulting services and technology solutions that have made it such a powerful force in the market. We are confident that Frank will build on the exceptional leadership that Alice has provided over the last five years, and we wish Alice and her family all the very best for her retirement.”
