Aurélien Schwachtgen will join Aon Global Risk Consulting in April as director of client solutions, boosting the broker and captive manager’s presence in the French market and across the region.
Schwachtgen, based in Paris, joins from WTW where he is currently head of alternative risk transfer for western and central Europe and will report to Ciarán Healy, chief commercial officer for EMEA.
“Aurélien is one of the most well respected alternative risk transfer and risk advisory professionals in the French region and will play an integral role the development and execution of opportunities for Aon’s Global Risk Consulting team,” Healy said.
Schwachtgen will have a remit across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), but his hire is particularly timely with growth in the French captive market expected to accelerate in 2023.
He has previously worked for Axa Corporate Solutions holding a number of positions including pricing actuary and P&C Risk Manager.
