Aon has named Julie Page as CEO of Aon UK, replacing Dominic Christian who takes up the new role of global chairman of Aon Benfield.
Christian was most recently CEO of Aon UK Ltd, the firm’s UK risk management, insurance broking, and reinsurance business, and executive chairman of Aon Benfield International since 2013.
In his new position, he will continue to report to Greg Case, president and CEO of Aon plc.
Page is currently CEO of Aon Risk Solutions UK and will continue in this position alongside her new role of CEO of Aon UK Ltd, where she will be responsible for the management and governance oversight of the Aon UK Ltd business, including strategies on how to best meet clients’ needs, delivering on the firm’s UK regulatory commitments and liaising with the UK board.
She will have dual reporting responsibilities: Michael O’Connor, global CEO of Aon Risk Solutions in her new role while also continuing to report to John Cullen, CEO of Aon Risk Solutions EMEA.
Commenting on the appointments, Case said: “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,” he added.
Both appointments are subject to regulatory approval.
