Aon UK has appointed Nathan Shanaghy as COO, succeeding David Ledger who will retire at the end of the month after 21 years with the broker.
Shanaghy currently serves as COO of Aon Risk Solutions UK (ARS UK) and the London Global Broking Centre (GBC). In this role he has focused on enabling the business to more effectively serve clients through the delivery of innovative solutions, improved productivity and enhanced analytics. Before that, he was director of operations for ARS EMEA, having joined from Marsh in 2010.
He will commence his new role and join the Aon UK Ltd board on 1 April, reporting to recently appointed Aon UK CEO Julie Page.
Commenting on the appointment, Page said: “I have worked closely with Nathan since joining Aon, and know that he will be a great successor to David. I know I speak on behalf of the whole of the UK board in saying that we are very much looking forward to working with Nathan to manage the risk business in the UK.”
“I would like to thank David for his dedication, both to Aon and our industry, in a career that has spanned over 40 years. Both the board and I have valued his experience and counsel in a variety of leadership positions within the firm. We wish him all the best in his retirement.”
Shanaghy’s appointment comes a week after Aon UK named Matt Kimber as its new chief risk officer.
