Aon has announced the appointment of Qin Lu (pictured) as the head of Greater China, overseeing the markets of mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, effective Aug. 1. Concurrent with this new role, Qin will also maintain his position as a member of the Aon Asia-Pacific executive committee.

In a strategic move, Aon established a new sub-region encompassing Greater China to better align with clients and the industry landscape within the broader Asia Pacific region earlier this year. As the sub-region’s new leader, Qin Lu will integrate Aon's capabilities in risk capital and human capital. He will also collaborate with the regional team to extend Aon's extensive expertise and solutions to clients. Besides this function, Lu will also retain his leadership role in reinsurance solutions for the sub-region.

Before assuming his new role, Qin Lu held the position of co-head of China and CEO of Reinsurance Solutions, Greater China at Aon. According to his LinkedIn, his journey with Aon began in 2016. Prior to joining Aon, Lu gained extensive experience at Swiss Re, where he spent 19 years in various strategic and leadership capacities across Asia. This included a prominent role as the president overseeing Swiss Re's China business.

“I am thrilled to have Qin lead the continued growth of the Greater China sub-region,” said Anne Corona, CEO of Asia Pacific at Aon. “He has demonstrated a strong track record of leading across solution lines to deliver Aon United capabilities to our clients. Qin will build on the team’s success and strengthen collaboration across the region to provide greater clarity and confidence to help clients make better decisions to protect and grow their businesses.”

Recently, the global firm also reaffirmed its commitment to the Chinese market as it announced the increase of its support for its first-ever Chinese joint venture (JV) insurance brokerage in the country.
