Willis Towers Watson

Chief Privacy Officer

I serve as Chief Privacy Officer with Willis Towers Watson, a NYSE listed company with 43,000 employees that provides insurance services, pension administration and consultancy on employees’ benefits, in 143 countries. I am also a Consultative Expert Member on Digital Ethics/AI in Insurance at the EIOPA, the European Union regulator responsible for the supervision of the Insurance Industry.

Before joining Willis Towers Watson, I was the Chief Privacy Officer of HCL Technologies. I also practiced as an attorney in law firms and as a legal counsel at Celgene (Switzerland), IBM (Ireland), the European Medicines Agency (London) and the Portuguese Ministry of Health (Lisbon).

In 2020, I was listed as a "Global Top 100 Data Visionaries: Leaders who are vividly innovating with analytics without compromising on trust and privacy" and, in 2018, I was awarded with the Data Leader Award on Data Protection by the Information Age Magazine.

I serve as a member of the Research Advisory Board of the IAPP and I am a co-author of the book, “Privacy Program Management” used as the main training material for all the IAPP CIPP/M certifications.
