“Australians love sport and have some of the highest participation rates in the world, yet the current array of sports services in the Australian broker market is underwhelming,” said Lambros Lambrou
, CEO, Aon Risk Solutions Australia.
“In hiring David, we’re committing to making Aon’s global sports expertise available to the Australian market and delivering a better deal for sports clients.”
“Having spent the last four and half years running a specialist sports insurer, I know how insurers think and operate in this segment,” said Lamb about his new role. “At the same time, after three years as a board member at Vicsport, I understand the challenges facing both big and small sports organisations in this country, including funding, governance and participation.”
