Aon has named Andy Marcell as president of its reinsurance broking arm Aon Benfield with immediate effect.

Marcell was most recently head of strategy at Aon Benfield and will now play a wider role in managing the global business.

He will report to Aon Benfield CEO Eric Andersen.

Prior to joining Aon Benfield in 2015, Marcell was CEO of Guy Carpenter’s US operations and head of its global facultative business.

Commenting on the appointment, Andersen said: “Andy has an admirable track record of industry experience and knowledge, and has an impressive skill set to become president of Aon Benfield.”

“He will provide strong leadership to our teams and he brings an international perspective to the role as we continue to grow our global business.”

Marcell's appointment follows the retirement of Aon Benfield chairman Michael O'Halleran in May.
