Aon hires leader of cyber solutions and CEO of Stroz Friedberg

Major broker Aon has appointed Jason Hogg as leader of cyber solutions and as CEO of Stroz Friedberg.

Hogg will be responsible for the growth strategy of the firm's solutions that help clients address and manage cyber risk. He will also serve as CEO of Stroz Friedberg, an Aon company, succeeding Michael Patsalos-Fox. Patsalos-Fox is retiring after leading the company through the Aon acquisition and integration.

"Managing cyber risk effectively requires information security and risk leaders to work together to address this dynamic issue," said Michael O'Connor, CEO, Aon Risk Solutions. "Following last year's acquisition of Stroz Friedberg, Aon now has unparalleled ability to bring together all the relevant stakeholders in an organization to advise on how to collaborate to manage cyber risk. Jason's strong technology background, business leadership, and entrepreneurial experience will be invaluable as we grow our capabilities to best serve client needs today and in the future," said O'Connor.

Hogg joins Aon from Tritium Partners, a private equity firm where he was a senior advisor and a CEO Partner responsible for prioritizing investment exploration in information, risk, cyber security and business intelligence services. Hogg started his career as a special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and has held executive positions with Blackstone Group, American Express and MBNA.

"This is an exciting time to be joining Aon," said Hogg. "Aon is helping clients integrate risk management and information security to address cyber risk in a new way. We have a unique ability to help our clients strengthen organizational resilience that is changing the way companies think about cyber security."
