Aon names Marcell CEO of new Reinsurance Solutions division
Global broker Aon in June 2018 announced that Andy Marcell has been appointed as CEO of its new Reinsurance Solutions division.
Aon recently announced a rebranding of its reinsurance broking unit Aon Benfield to just Aon and has split its operations into new Solutions divisions, one of which is the Reinsurance Solutions arm.
Along with the change, Eric Andersen who was CEO of Aon Benfield was made co-President of Aon, leaving a gap at the top of the reinsurance broking arm, which Marcell will now fill. He will take on responsibility for managing the existing operations and growth strategy of Aon’s Reinsurance Solutions business as the brand transition from Aon Benfield begins. He will be based in New York and will continue to report to Eric Andersen, co-President of Aon plc.
Marcell originally joined Aon in 2015 in the role of Head of Strategy for Aon Benfield, then becoming President of Aon Benfield in 2017, to take on a wider executive role and to support ongoing growth strategies at the reinsurance broker. Before joining Aon Benfield in 2015, Marcell was CEO of Guy Carpenter’s U.S. broking operations and head of its Global Facultative business. He joined Guy Carpenter’s London office in 1990 from Hoare Govett in London, where he worked as a Convertible Equity Trader.
