Willis Group picks Furman to replace Rosman as group general counsel

Insurance giant Willis Group has found a replacement general counsel for Adam Rosman after a four-month wait – Travelers’ senior vice president and general counsel Matthew Furman.

Furman is leaving Travelers after working for the company for almost eight years, and will bring his experience working as general counsel for finance and corporate at Goldman Sachs to his new role.

His arrival comes months after former general counsel Rosman departed for First Data Corporation in October after three years in the job.

Willis already has high expectations for its new general counsel; CEO Dominic Casserley said that Furman will be “acquiring firms that add specific expertise” and will be “modernising our operations”.
