Aon strengthens global consulting with new senior appointments

Aon Risk Solutions has announced changes to its senior leadership team within its Aon Global Risk Consulting practice.

Eddie McLaughlin will join Aon’s Global Risk Consulting team as Chief Commercial Officer for EMEA. He will focus on defining and driving the business development agenda for  Risk Consulting, Captive Management and Risk Control & Engineering as part of Aon’s value proposition to corporate clients in EMEA.

Former Director of Enterprise Risk Management, Grant Foster, has been appointed as Managing Director of the Aon Global Risk Consulting team in the UK. These appointments reinforce Aon’s strategy to enhance broking services by offering a consultative and data-led approach for clients.

Markus Mende, Group Managing Director AGRC EMEA, said “We are delighted that Eddie McLaughlin will join AGRC as Chief Commercial Officer EMEA. He was previously with Marsh where he managed their Risk Consulting operations in EMEA and provided strategic direction for key client accounts. Eddie brings with him a wealth of experience across the whole spectrum of risk consulting for clients across the globe.  Our consulting arm is further strengthened by the promotion of Grant Foster to Managing Director, both of these appointments will enable us to deliver increased value and strategic consulting advice for our clients.”

This announcement represents a realignment of Aon’s consulting arm.  David Crofts, who was formerly MD of AGRC UK, is now heading a strengthened global division comprising both consulting and solutions led support to Aon’s Global clients.  This will enable Aon to provide both consulting and transactional advice to clients with sophisticated risk portfolios.
