Aon PLC has appointed former Guy Carpenter & Co. LLC manager Eric Schwebach to the newly created position as head of Aons Reinsurance Solutions, the broker said in a statement on Thursday.
Mr. Schwebach will focus on larger customers and new business. He will be based in Minneapolis and report to Trevor Dorr, CEO of Reinsurance Solutions.
Mr. Schwebach joins reinsurance broker Guy Carpenter, where he most recently was senior vice president and a member of the company's North American real estate / accident agreement broker.
Prior to Guy Carpenter, he was part of Aon Benfield's customer development and production team based in the Chicago office and began his reinsurance career at Benfield in 2006.
The move comes amid tumult in the reinsurance sector in the wake of the US Justice Department's cost to block the $ 30 billion merger between Aon and Willis. Towers Watson PLC.
