Global insurance and reinsurance broker Aon has named Jason Hogg as the new Leader of Aon Cyber Solutions, and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Stroz Friedberg.
Aon has announced a number of hires within its cyber division in recent times, and the appointment of Hogg from private equity firm, Tritium Partners, demonstrates its commitment to developing a unique and broad set of cyber exposure capabilities, in the growing world of cyber security.
As well as his duties as Leader of Aon Cyber Solutions, Hogg will succeed Michael Patsalos-Fox as CEO of Stroz Friedberg. Patsalos-Fox is to retire after leading the company through the acquisition by Aon and subsequent integration.
Michael J. O’Connor, CEO, Aon Risk Solutions, said; “Managing cyber risk effectively requires information security and risk leaders to work together to address this dynamic issue.
“Following last year’s acquisition of Stroz Friedberg, Aon now has unparalleled ability to bring together all the relevant stakeholders in an organization to advise on how to collaborate to manage cyber risk. Jason’s strong technology background, business leadership, and entrepreneurial experience will be invaluable as we grow our capabilities to best serve client needs today and in the future.”
While at Tritium Partners Hogg held the position as senior advisor and a CEO Partner, and was focused on investment exploration in information, risk, cyber security and business intelligence services, says Aon. Prior to this Hogg worked at the FBI and has also held senior executive positions at Blackstone Group, American Express, and MBNA.
Hogg commented on his new roles; “This is an exciting time to be joining Aon. Aon is helping clients integrate risk management and information security to address cyber risk in a new way. We have a unique ability to help our clients strengthen organizational resilience that is changing the way companies think about cyber security.”
