Global broker Aon has announced the appointment of Tracy-Lee Kus (pictured above) as head of its London-based Global Broking Centre (GBC), effective September 1, 2024.

Kus will report to Joe Peiser, global commercial risk CEO. She succeeds Mark Parker, who will be retiring shortly.

After Parker's interim leadership of the GBC in recent months, Kus will focus on enhancing client relationships and leveraging Aon’s Risk Capital capabilities. This includes expanding the Aon Client Treaty as the company continues to grow its technical and specialty capabilities.

Kus brings over 30 years of experience in the insurance industry, having worked in South Africa, Singapore, and the United Kingdom. She rejoined Aon in 2011 and has held several senior roles, most recently as head of commercial risk for Aon in the Asia Pacific region.

Kus's career includes positions as underwriter at Novae from January 2008 to December 2011 and financial lines underwriter at AXIS Capital from April 2006 to January 2008. She also served as director at Aon Risk Solutions from 2002 to 2006, and co-founder managing general agent at Antares MGA in South Africa from 2000 to 2002.

Kus was financial lines manager at AIG from 1997 to 2000 and Director at Glenrand MIB from 1995 to 1997. She holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons) in Economics from the University of Witwatersrand and a BSc in literature from The Open University.

“I am delighted to welcome Tracy-Lee into this important role. The increased complexity of global risks and the London market’s track record of innovation makes our GBC more relevant than ever. Tracy-Lee has the leadership skills and global perspective required to increase the GBC’s impact with colleagues, clients and underwriting partners,” Peiser said.

Peiser also expressed gratitude to Parker for his leadership, noting his successful career spanning over three decades in the industry.
