Being the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of a company is not small accomplishment. CFOs have the primary duties of taking care of the finances of the company, so they need to have a lot of background in financial administration, business management, and must be continually planning for the future and analyzing risks and chances for profit. They have to be aware of the financial reports, the amount the company is allowed to spend, and a lot of data in general. This is the reality of the newest CFO of Willis Towers Watson.
Willis Tower Watson is a prominent and very famous multinational risk consultancy company, and Michael Burwell is the newest Chief Financial Officer of the firm.
As CFO, Michael Burwell has the arduous task of taking care of all the financial aspects of the firm and report them back to the CEO of the company. However, his record of successful jobs and his extensive experience in the field show that Michael Burwell is fit for the job.
Michael Burwell graduated from the Michigan State University and, prior to his occupation in Willis Tower Watson, he had already acquired decades working at Pricewaterhouse Coopers, where he worked in the assurance department and was later nominated to occupy the role of Transaction Services Leader of the company’s transactions in the United States. A couple of months later, he was already being appointed CFO of the company and, in 2008, Chief Operating Officer (COO).
It wouldn’t take that long for Michael Burwell to demonstrate his leadership skills and take the company to the next level. Only four years after assuming the role of COO, he was rewarded with the Vice President position, which he took with responsibility and immense pride.
Michael Burwell’s impressive career and quick climbing in the business world would take him to become the Chief Financial Officer of Willis Tower Watson. The CEO of the company was very eager to work with Burwell, stating that the company was very excited to have him as their CFO because they believe in his skills at business management, finances and his ability to make the right decisions for the future of the corporation.
