Press release:

Willis Towers Watson Appoints John McQuade and Deborah Tully to its Government Contractor Industry Group

Issued by: Willis Towers Watson

Date: Jan. 18, 2018

ARLINGTON, VA, January 18, 2018 — Willis Towers Watson (NASDAQ: WLTW), a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company, today announced the strategic hires of John McQuade and Deborah Tully as senior members of the company’s Government Contractor Industry Group. Both are highly regarded retirement consulting actuaries. McQuade and Tully were partners in Pine Cliff Consulting, Inc., a two-person consulting firm that provided high-value, specialized actuarial services to government contractors.

McQuade and Tully specialize in Cost Accounting Standards and Federal Acquisition Regulation compliance, negotiating advance agreements with government agencies, providing assistance in resolving disputes with the government, and consulting on benefits and financial strategy issues unique to government contractors. They provide client counsel across the complexity of various rules affecting retirement plan costs for organizations contracting with the federal government.

“We’re extremely excited to bring John McQuade and Deb Tully, and their unique knowledge-base and wealth of experiences, onto our team,” said Bill Gulliver, head of North America Retirement, Willis Towers Watson. “With their addition, we now have market-leading capabilities to expand our services to government contractors, which are subject to very complicated rules about the recovery of pension and postretirement benefit costs under their government contracts. John and Deb’s expertise on assuring compliance with these rules, developing benefits and financial strategies that account for specific government contracting considerations, and helping clients resolve disputes with the government will be significant.”

McQuade has over 40 years of experience in the retirement field. Until 2002, he was president of Fidelity Investments Actuarial and Consulting Services, Inc., which formed in 1997 when Fidelity Investments acquired McQuade Incorporated. Before founding McQuade Incorporated in 1991, he was a managing director of William M. Mercer, Incorporated. He focuses on financial issues associated with retirement plans sponsored by organizations that contract with the U.S. government.

Tully has over 23 years of experience in the employee benefits field. Prior to joining Pine Cliff in 2016, she was the senior director of Compensation & Benefits Finance for Raytheon Company. In this role, she was responsible for financial management, government reimbursement, compliance and strategic analysis for Raytheon’s benefit programs. Before joining Raytheon, she was a consulting actuary with Mercer, Aon and Buck Consultants.
