WTW recruits energy executive

Global advisory, broking and solutions company WTW has announced the recruitment of Blake Koen as managing director, global client advocate, natural resources for its North America business. Koen will help to develop and execute the strategic direction of WTW’s energy business.

Koen has more than 20 years’ experience in the energy liability market and was previously a senior vice-president at Lockton in the North American energy team, having also worked at Aon, Gallagher and Liberty Mutual.

This latest hire follows news last month of a team of five moving to WTW’s energy team in Houston as part of WTW’s investment in its North American natural resources business.
