Towers Watson Appoints Dr. Jeffery Thompson to Its Health and Group Benefits Business

Issued by: Towers Watson

Date: Aug. 25, 2015

ARLINGTON, VA, August 25, 2015 — Global professional services company Towers Watson (NASDAQ: TW) today announced it has appointed Dr. Jeffery Thompson as senior consultant in its Health and Group Benefits line of business. Thompson joined the company last month from Mercer, a professional services firm, and is based in Seattle. In his new role, he will focus on health promotion, health care strategy and value-based purchasing approaches to help employers achieve better outcomes at a lower cost, both locally and nationally.

“We’re very pleased that Jeff will be assuming this important position at Towers Watson in the Seattle area,” said Steve Carlson, Towers Watson’s Health and Group Benefits leader for the Pacific Northwest. “Jeff’s unique skill set combined with his 30 years’ experience advising public and private sector employers about their health care delivery and employee benefits will be a tremendous benefit to our clients across the Pacific Northwest.”

Prior to Mercer, Thompson served as chief medical officer for the Washington State Health Care Authority, the agency that manages Washington’s Medicaid and state employee benefit programs. He recently led a national effort to select regional centers of excellence based on outcomes and best-in-class member services, implemented supply-side strategies to improve the value of hospitals, and health services and contracts, as well as designed value-based purchasing models and accountable care programs.
