Insurance and reinsurance broker Aon plc has appointed Jon Wiegand as Head of Power in the UK Global Broking Centre.
He will report to James MacNeal, Managing Director of Construction and Power.
Wiegand’s role will take place later this year, and is set to align with the development of Aon’s global Energy Transition Group, a partnership between Power and Energy, led by Euan Nicolson, Global CCO of the firm’s Energy speciality.
He brings just under 20 years of insurance experience to the team, joining from Swiss Re, where he most recently served as Head of Engineering and Construction.
He started his career as an industry oil and gas engineer and spent several years developing his sector knowledge at Woodhill Frontier and Davy Process Technology as a Senior Process Engineer.
Wiegand will also work closely with Guido Benz, Aon’s recently appointed Global Renewable Energy Leader who is joining in May, and Carol Stark who was recently appointed US Renewable Energy Leader.
James MacNeal, Managing Director of GBC Construction and Power at Aon said: “The power industry is a key focus for Aon, and our offering is underpinned by market-leading technical and specialty capabilities.
“Jon’s appointment is a key part of our strategy to build a talented and experienced team that can deliver the full depth of Aon’s capabilities to our clients. I am delighted that Jon will be joining us; his wealth of expertise will prove invaluable as we continue to strengthen our power proposition in London and globally.”
