“It’s fantastic to welcome John to the team – he brings a weight of experience, as well as longstanding relationships with clients and the market,” said Bonard. “John excels at developing links with clients and carriers, which will be invaluable as we build up our services on the island.”

Turner joins from Aon, where he was most recently chairman - Aon Commercial Risk Solutions UK & Americas.  He has more than 40 years’ experience in the reinsurance market – 30 of which have been in Lloyd’s broking – and has led teams covering property, casualty, terrorism, power, energy, and construction.

“I’m looking forward to joining Ed in Bermuda, supporting Chris as we build a cross class team of highly motivated professionals, as well as being very much hands on with day to day broking,” said Turner. “Ed Bermuda is creating meaningful new capacity as the leading wholesale broker on the island, supported by world class technology.  It’s an exciting venture to be part of.”
