Towers Watson has hired Ed Francis as EMEA head of the company's Investment business, effective immediately. He succeeds Chris Ford who, after holding this position since 2011, has assumed the role of global head of investment.

Ford said: "I have worked with Ed for over a decade and have been impressed by his commitment to our clients and our investment business. He has served as a key member of the EMEA leadership team for several years while working with some of our largest and most sophisticated clients.
I look forward to working with him on the global leadership team as he takes on the challenges of leading and growing our Investment business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa."

Francis joined Towers Watson in 2001 from PricewaterhouseCoopers and has held a number of leadership roles during that time, most recently being a member of the EMEA investment leadership team and head of the UK client consulting teams.
