The Worldwide Broker Network (WBN), the world’s largest global network of independent insurance and benefits brokers, has appointed Alan Fergusson as its Global Employee Benefits Practice leader.
His appointment is one of the first moves to strengthen the WBN headquarters team, who said the addition of this new role “demonstrates the commitment of WBN to driving forward the employee benefits proposition of the network to our brokers and clients around the world”.
Fergusson brings with him over 20 years of experience in the employee benefits sector. Previously, he was a consultant for WBN and has been associated with the network since 2012, evolving the EB strategy and participating on the board of directors from 2014 to 2018.
He joins WBN from Beneficia where he was responsible for delivering complex projects across the EB spectrum. Alan has also held board positions at Mearns and Company, Kudos Financial Services and Mattioli Woods plc.
Fergusson said: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to take on this new position at WBN. There has never been a more exciting and dynamic time for international EB clients. I look forward to working with Olga, the WBN team and members to play a leading role in WBN’s growth and development in this key sector.”
Olga Collins, CEO of WBN, said: “I am so pleased to have Alan leading our EB strategy. There’s vast growth potential in the employee benefits part of our industry and his role will be to drive that agenda and support members in further building out this area of their businesses.
“Alan has worked closely with us for many years and I know his global experience, combined with his dedication to delivering for clients will greatly accelerate our plans.”
