London-headquartered Aon plc has tapped industry veteran Lambros Lambrou to take on a larger role within the firm.
Lambrou, who most recently served as chief executive of Aon Risk Solutions Australia, has been appointed as global chief commercial officer, as well as CEO of global specialties for Aon’s commercial risk business. The seasoned executive has worked in the risk management industry for more than 30 years – his experience spanning insurance, reinsurance, and alternative capital markets across Asia Pacific, North America, and EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa).
At Aon – where he has played a central role in several key growth initiatives over the last decade – Lambrou has held various positions including global chief operating officer for Aon Broking, head of Aon Analytics, and chief executive of the global broking centre in London.
“Global specialties is a critical element of how we identify and address our clients’ most pressing needs,” commented Aon Risk Solutions chief executive Michael O’Connor. “Lambros has a strong international perspective and this together with his innovative mindset and understanding of the insurance marketplace will add significant value to our overall offering.”
Aon provides a wide range of risk, retirement, and health solutions and employs around 50,000 people in 120 countries.
“I’m delighted to be taking on this new role at Aon,” said Lambrou. “I very much look forward to working with my colleagues to accelerate the development of innovative solutions and services across a broader definition of risk that help our clients navigate through the unprecedented volatility and complexity we expect to see well into the future.”
