Aon Risk Solutions shuffles leadership

Aon Risk Solutions has reshuffled its senior leadership team within its Aon global risk consulting practice (AGRC).

Eddie McLaughlin will join the team as chief commercial officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

He will focus on defining and driving the business development agenda for risk consulting, captive management and risk control and engineering as part of Aon’s value proposition to corporate clients in EMEA.

In addition, Grant Foster, the former director of enterprise risk management, has been appointed as managing director (MD) of the AGRC team in the UK.

He succeeds David Crofts who will now head a global division comprising both consulting and solutions led support to Aon’s global clients. The appointments are part of a realignment of Aon’s consulting arm.

Markus Mende, group managing director of 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.”
