Mr Shalders was Group Operations & Technology Director at Willis Towers Watson plc, responsible for IT, operations, real estate and change management functions.

He also led the division’s regulatory response to Basel 3. Prior to that, he led the Group’s integration with ABN Amro and held roles as Head of London and Asia Operations and Head of Derivative Operations for NatWest.
