John Minor has left Aon in Chicago, where he was head of the political risks division. He joins Jardine Lloyd Thomson (JLT), still in Chicago, as president of the credit and political risks division. Minor spent 12 years at Aon before joining JLT.

“There is a growing need for better tools to help companies mitigate and manage political and economic risks,” says Minor. “I hope to assemble a team that has a lot of experience in advising companies in handling these risks.”

The JLT division will offer a consultative brokerage service.
