Aon Birmingham Strengthens Commercial Risk Solutions Team With Senior Hire

09 November 2023

 Aon plc (NYSE: AON), a leading global professional services firm, has bolstered its commercial risk solutions team in Birmingham with the appointment of Steve Roberts.

Having spent the early part of his career in the IT and telecoms sector, Steve made the shift into insurance over a decade ago and has since gained experience across a wide range of industries including manufacturing, engineering, and technology.  

Working with large corporate clients, often with a global presence, Steve works with Aon colleagues across Europe, the US and Asia to create bespoke packages that can cover any combination of insurance needs from motor fleets, to marine risk, professional risk and personal director-level risk.  

Commenting on his appointment, Steve said:

“My style of client management has always been driven by a desire to consult rather than sell.  I pride myself on really getting to understand my clients and this maps well against Aon’s own consultative approach to commercial risk.

“By investing the time to get under the skin of my clients, I am better equipped to identify the best Aon solutions for them and where appropriate refer them on to my colleagues elsewhere in the business, for example those specialising in pensions and investments.”

Chris Barley Head of Office for Commercial Risk at Aon in Birmingham, added:

“Steve’s commitment to client management is almost infectious, and his enthusiasm for working with colleagues in distinct areas of the business to deliver the best solutions to clients compliments perfectly with Aon’s ethos of being in the business of better decisions.  He’s already made a positive impact to the commercial risk team here and I’m looking forward to seeing the continued value that he can add.”
