Global insurance brokerage Aon has announced Pablo Munoz as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for Reinsurance Solutions in Latin America, succeeding Alejandro Galizia.
Munoz first joined Aon in 2008 and during his time with the re/insurance broker has held a number of leadership roles, playing an important role in the success of the Reinsurance Solutions’ Latin America business.
Most recently, Munoz served as Strategic Growth Leader for the Latin America region, a role which saw him take responsibility for outlining the company’s growth strategy and determining necessary resources to achieve business objectives.
He assumes the position from Galizia, who, after serving as CEO for Reinsurance Solutions in Latin America since 2014, has been appointed CEO for Commercial Risk, Health, Retirement and Data Analytics for Latin America at Aon.
Galizia joined Reinsurer in 1994, a firm acquired by Aon in 1998. In the year 2000, Galizia was named CEO of Aon Re Argentina, before serving as Deputy Chairman of Aon Re Latin America.
Eric Andersen, Aon’s Co-President, commented: “Alejandro is an experienced leader with a deep understanding of the regional marketplace and he will be well positioned to work with our leadership team to continue serving our clients with excellence and accelerate our growth agenda. Appointing a leader with Alejandro’s background and experience reinforces our core belief of the importance the region plays in our firm’s continued success.”
Galizia added: “We have a diverse, experienced team whose knowledge of our local markets and clients is exceptional. I am honored to be leading this team as we bring the best of Aon to our clients throughout Latin America.”
Galizia takes over as CEO for Latin America at insurance and reinsurance broker Aon from Fernando Pereira, who retired from the company on January 1st, 2020. Pereira had been with Aon for two decades and served as CEO for the region since 2012.
“Fernando leaves a lasting and positive imprint on Aon. We will all benefit from his leadership and the strong teams he has built,” said Andersen.
