Broking giant Aon has appointed Edwin Charnaud as EMEA chairman for its M&A and transaction solutions business.

Beginning April 15, Charnaud will guide the regional M&A and transaction solutions team and contribute strategic insights to help execute its growth plan. He will also focus on strengthening relationships with private equity and infrastructure clients.

Prior to joining Aon, Charnaud was with Marsh, where he was chairman of the global infrastructure practice and EMEA head of private equity and M&A from 2004, having also previously worked at Willis.
