Global HR consulting firm Towers Watson has appointed Peter Rowles as head of its Retirement Practice for the UK and Ireland. Rowles succeeds John Ball, who recently was appointed Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) head of Retirement Solutions.
In June Towers Watson announced that the former head of the UK’s Retirement Practice, John Ball, was promoted to lead the EMEA practice. He succeeded Mark Stewart, who retired after 22 years of service at the consulting firm. Three months down the line Towers Watson has now found and appointed a new head for its UK Retirement Practice: Peter Rowles.
Rowles is a veteran at the firm – he joined in 1987 – and has since been involved in various leadership roles. Prior to his new role, he led Towers Watson’s Reigate-based Retirement consultancy team. “I am delighted that Peter has been appointed to succeed me as UK and Ireland head of Retirement. Peter is one of our most experienced consultants and gifted client relationship managers. He has successfully guided our large Reigate-based team through a period of substantial change over the past few years and this experience makes him ideally placed to develop and grow the business in the coming years,” says John Ball.
