Aon appoints UK CEO, new global Aon Benfield chairman

Broker Aon has appointed Dominic Christian as global chairman of its reinsurance intermediary Aon Benfield while Julie Page has been promoted to chief executive officer of Aon UK.

Most recently, Christian was chief executive officer of Aon UK, the firm’s UK risk management, insurance broking, and reinsurance business, and executive chairman of Aon Benfield International since 2013. In his new role, Christian will continue to report to Greg Case, president and chief executive officer of Aon.

In Page’s new executive position, she will be responsible for the management and governance oversight of the Aon UK business, including strategies on how to best meet clients’ needs, delivering on the firm’s UK regulatory commitments and liaising with the UK board.

Page will report to Michael O’Connor, global CEO of Aon Risk Solutions in her Aon UK role and will also continue in her current position as CEO of Aon Risk Solutions UK, reporting to John Cullen, chief executive officer of Aon Risk Solutions EMEA.

Case commented: “Dominic has an innate knowledge of Aon’s global reinsurance business with over 30 years of extensive industry experience, which will be of enormous value in managing the responsibilities of his new chairmanship and working closely with Eric Andersen, CEO of Aon Benfield.

"Julie’s appointment is a testament to her skills and in-depth experience. The Board of Aon UK Ltd will greatly benefit from her counsel as we continue to grow the business in this key market and she brings a broad perspective from across the entire industry through her role as Deputy Chair of British Insurance Brokers' Association.”
