Aon Risk Solutions announces ‘united’ Pacific leadership
Aon Risk Solutions has revealed a new Pacific regional board structure, with Aon New Zealand CEO Geoff Blampied taking on a leadership role within it, the company has announced.

The new structure is designed to more closely align New Zealand and Australian operations as well as show off the region’s ‘industry-leading innovations’.

Blampied, who will continue as Aon New Zealand CEO, will now be non-executive chairman of Aon Risk Solutions Pacific, succeeding John Cullen.

The Pacific board will also consist of Aon Risk Solutions’ global CEO, Mike O’Connor; Geoff Blampied, New Zealand CEO; Lambros Lambrou, Australia CEO; Bill Hooper, Pacific COO and CFO, and John Cullen, Europe, the Middle East and Africa CEO.

In addition to his spot on the Pacific leadership board, Lambrou will also join the Global Aon Risk Solutions operating committee to represent the interests of the Pacific region.

“The new structure will bring the Pacific region’s industry-leading innovation to the fore and provide opportunities for increased collaboration amongst our key markets,” O’Connor said.
“We have some exceptional talent in our Pacific businesses and a great track record of profitable growth.”

O’Connor had high praise for both Blampied and Lambrou and their respective skillsets.

“Geoff is a leader with a growth track record second to none, and I am delighted to welcome him in his new role with its additional Pacific Board Chairmanship responsibilities,” he said.

“Moreover, Lambros will bring to the Global Operating Committee a unique set of skills and experiences that have been developed during his time working for Aon in a number of international markets.”

The changes are effective immediately and will “drive progress through seamless collaboration, delivering best practice value and outcomes for clients, both regionally and globally,” the company said.
