Lockton Re, the reinsurance broking arm of the privately held and independent intermediary, has added two senior appointments in Bob Bissett and Matt Foreman from Aon.
The two senior London hires see the broker make steps towards the build-out of a new retrocessional reinsurance practice.
Bissett has been with Aon for almost two decades, having started as an SVP at the broker’s reinsurance unit Aon Benfield in Bermuda. He later went on to become a team leader for the Aon reinsurance broking arm in Bermuda.
In 2013, he relocated to the UK and subsequently became Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Global ReSpecialty at Aon in 2015. Most recently, Bissett took on the role of UK Growth Leader at Aon towards the end of 2018.
He is set to join Lockton Re towards the end of this year and will be based in the firm’s London office. He will take on a senior role at the firm with a focus on retrocession as well as direct and facultative placement broking in the London marketplace.
Also joining Lockton Re from Aon towards the end of this year is Foreman, a well-known London market retro broker.
Foreman is set to take on a role with a non-marine retro broking focus, and a remit to assist in building the firm’s retro practice. He has spent his entire career in the reinsurance unit at Aon, starting as a graduate trainee at the firm. He has held roles across aviation, Asia Pacific treaty reinsurance and U.S. property treaty business, before transitioning into the non-marine retro space at Aon’s Global ReSpecialty.
Most recently, Foreman served as Head of London Market, Non-Marine, at Aon’s Global ReSpecialty.
