The global risk management and insurance and human capital advisory firm Willis Towers Watson recently announced they had secured an outstanding new Chief Financial Officer or CFO named Michael Burwell. Burwell has an outstanding record of serving one of the United States’ Big Four accounting firms, Price Waterhouse Coopers for 31 years of impressive accomplishment there.

 

The Chief Executive Officer of Willis Towers Watson, John Haley, said Burwell understood management, leadership and how to drive results in a global economy. He looked forward to working with Burwell to guide the company’s long-term growth and further integration. From his time at PwC, Burwell had an outstanding record of working clients. Burwell will drive Willis Towers Watson to reach its full potential as a company serving clients in over 140 countries.

 

Haley also thanked Roger Millay the retiring Chief Financial Officer for his outstanding leadership. He would leave Willis Towers Watson much stronger and better positioned for success.

 

Michael Burwell began preparing for his career of outstanding business service through earning his Bachelor of Arts degree from Michigan University in Business Administration in 1986. PwC recognized Michael Burwell tremendous potential and hired him as an accounting, putting him to work in the assurance department auditing clients for eleven years. This experience taught Burwell how companies keep their records and choose to set up their various accounting systems. It gave him deep insight into the various ways companies meet the requirements of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, and how some companies may choose to try to get around the GAAP procedures. He learned from his experiences on the job and studied hard, so he soon passed the difficult test to achieve the position of Certified Public Accountant. PwC promoted Burwell to the transactions services department in the Detroit area. This was just another stepping stone, up to Midwest Leader of Transaction Services and Automotive Industry Leader. But PwC’s Central Region was too small to contain Burwell’s expertise, so he became Transaction Services Leader for the entire United States. Starting in May 2008, Burwell achieved the title of Chief Financial Officer. Burwell’s star at PwC just kept rising. In July 2016, he became a full partner at PwC. As senior relationship advisor for some of PwC’s biggest and most important clients, Burwell couldn’t help but attract attention, leading to his recent move to Willis Towers Watson.
