Chilton to head AJG International

Arthur J Gallagher (AJG) has appointed Grahame Chilton as chief executive officer (CEO) of the company’s UK-based international brokerage division.

He succeeds David Ross who left the company to become CEO of Towergate.

Chilton is best known for founding and developing the Benfield Group. He has previously served as chairman of Aon Benfield. Since December 2013, he has been working in partnership with AJG leading the company’s reinsurance intermediary joint-venture, Capsicum Re.

J Patrick Gallagher Jr, chairman, president and CEO of AJG, said: “Chily has an outstanding reputation and proven track record as a successful industry leader who understands how to balance the entrepreneurial culture that our business is built on, with the successful running of a large scale organisation. We are delighted that he has agreed to lead the team as they continue to drive future growth while remaining firmly committed to delivering quality service to Gallagher customers.”

Chilton added: “AJG is a great business with great people and I am looking forward to working with the team and getting to know our customers over the coming weeks. Being asked to take on this new role, in addition to my existing position within Capsicum Re, demonstrates the strength of the partnership we have built over the past 14 months, and I am excited to be part of the next chapter in the company’s international growth story.”
