Aon Risk Solutions, the risk management business of insurance firm Aon, has appointed two new members in its global risk consulting (AGRC) practice.

Eddie McLaughlin has been named chief commercial officer for Emea, while Grant Foster has been promoted from director of enterprise risk management to managing director of the team in the UK.

McLaughlin joins from Marsh, where he managed risk consulting operations in Emea.

Foster replaces former MD of AGRC UK David Crofts, who is now heading a global division comprising both consulting and solutions-led support to Aon’s global clients, enabling Aon to better serve clients with sophisticated risk portfolios.

Markus Mende, group managing director AGRC Emea, says: “Eddie brings with him a wealth of experience across the whole spectrum of risk consulting for clients across the globe.  Our consulting arm is further strengthened by the promotion of Grant Foster to managing director. Both of these appointments will enable us to deliver increased value and strategic consulting advice for our clients.”
