Michael Lewars

Michael joined William Russell as Commercial Director in 2018 and is a member of our leadership team. Outside of work he is a husband of one and father of three, a petrolhead and avid F1 fan as well as long suffering supporter of Arsenal (although he still regularly talks of the Invincibles in 2004)


When he’s not hosting webinars, he is dealing with our insurance partners, supporting our brokers in region and leading our sales and retention efforts.

With over 25 years of experience in the healthcare, Michael has a comprehensive understanding of the international health and protection market; crucially from both a provider and intermediated perspective and has worked across multiple client segments. His day-to-day role includes commercially-enabling William Russell’s insurance partners; as well as strategically managing broker relationships globally.


William Russell has recently embarked upon an exciting programme of dynamic system and innovative product development, to be delivered by intuitive broker and consumer tools, which I believe will further cement our position in this competitive market. We are thankful and thrilled to be working with our wonderful broker distributors to this end.

Michael Lewars, Commercial Director


Michael is passionate about us delivering first class health and protection benefits to our clients across the globe and commercially enabling our broker partners. He further relishes the considerable market opportunity that William Russell has in the coming months and year.
