New year, new chief executive for Aon Risk Solutions Australia

Aon’s current head of the London Global Broking Centre and chief broking officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa Lambros Lambrou (pictured), is heading south.

Lambrou will take on the role of chief executive of Aon Risk Solutions (ARS) Australia at the start of 2014.

He replaces Steve Nevett in this role; however Nevett will remain chairman of Aon Corporation Australia Pacific Region. Aon stated that this would allow Nevett to focus on the execution of Aon’s broader strategy across the region.

Nevett said that Aon’s clients could expect to benefit from Lambrou’s understanding of global insurance markets. “We’re very much looking forward to cementing his expertise into our business here,” he said.

Prior to his current role, Lambrou was based in Chicago as head of Aon Analytics and then as chief executive of Aon Broking. From 1992 to 2008 he worked for Aon in Australia in roles that spanned reinsurance and retail broking.
