Aon UK has appointed Matt Kimber as its new chief risk officer (CRO).
Kimber succeeds John Nicholson who has been interim CRO for the past 11 months. He will report to Aon UK CEO Julie Page and will join the Aon UK board.
Kimber joins from JLT where he served as group head of risk and compliance for five years. He was previously CRO at Marsh and has also held positions at the likes of HBOS and Lloyds.
The appointment comes weeks after Page was named CEO of Aon UK, replacing Dominic Christian who takes up the new role of global chairman of Aon Benfield.
Commenting on the hire, Page said: “Matt brings great energy and experience to our risk and compliance team and we are delighted to have him on board. I would also like to thank John for the excellent job he has done as interim CRO and wish him well as he returns to his role as a non-executive director on the Aon UK Ltd board.”
