Aon assigns new regional leaders for reinsurance unit

Aon Plc has given its reinsurance solutions business a further boost with the appointment of new regional leaders.

George Attard has been named as chief executive of reinsurance solutions in Asia-Pacific; in the UK, Rupert Moore; in Canada, Matt Wolfe; in the Caribbean, Steve Bonifacio; and, in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), both Alfonso Valera and Tomas Novotny.

Jeremy Goodman, meanwhile, will serve as the unit’s president for APAC. Nick Frankland, who earlier this week was tapped to chair the insurance consulting group, is also taking on the role of UK president. For EMEA, co-CEO Alan Gregory is moving on to serve as the region’s chairman.

David Sloan, who is retiring as CEO and chair of Canada and the Caribbean at the end of the year, will remain for another 18 months as an advisor. As part of the transition, Wolfe and Bonifacio will assume their new roles come 2022.

Also effective in the New Year is Moore’s appointment. In addition to the UK CEO post, he will also act as executive sponsor for Japanese clients globally.

Meanwhile, retaining their current positions are US reinsurance solutions chief executive George deMenocal, Latin America CEO Pablo Muñoz, LatAm president Paula Ferreira, and facultative reinsurance chief Andrew Laing.

“Our reinsurance capabilities have been built on the strong foundations of local knowledge and market connections, underpinned by a global focus to ensure we are sharing best practices and helping to drive growth for insurers in each region we serve,” said Tim Ronda.

The newly appointed reinsurance solutions global geographic leader added: “Whether enhancing their property catastrophe programmes or navigating new forms of volatility around casualty, climate, and cyber, our new solutions for insurers will reach every corner of the globe, with the benefit of regional expertise.

“This new team of regional leaders will benefit from the prior leadership, and the firm’s very deep existing and diverse talent base, as we continue to bring together proven talent from across the firm to support our clients’ needs.”
