AON Birmingham Makes Senior Appointment To Support Growth In Commercial Risk Solutions

18 January 2024

 Aon plc (NYSE: AON), a leading global professional services firm, today announced further significant investment into its Birmingham-based commercial risk solutions team with the appointment of Wendy Griffiths who has joined as Executive Director.

Wendy brings to the role a wealth of insurance experience that spans over 30 years.  She spent the last two decades in client facing positions, including a 16-year period at Willis Towers Watson in Birmingham.  She has built significant industry experience across food, agriculture, and beverages both for UK, as well as global businesses.  

In her new role, Wendy will support client teams to enhance further the strong capability that already exists.  She will, additionally, assume the account chairman role on several key accounts.

Wendy Griffiths said:

“Getting to know clients, prospective clients and the team that will support me, is something that genuinely excites me.  I firmly believe that the service you deliver, is only as good as the questions that you ask – and it’s impossible to support a client if you’ve not fully identified the issues.

“Delivering the best to clients is predicated on putting the right team together and then building capability within it, so with this in mind I’m really looking forward to working with the entire team and delivering something meaningful to all our clients, both those we’re already working with as well as those who are currently prospects.”

Debbie Peters, Regional MD at Aon in Birmingham, added:

“It’s great news that Wendy has joined our commercial risk team and I look forward to working closely with her to further build our capacity and enhance our service offering in this area.

“Her reputation in this field, both here in the Midlands as well as further afield, is second to none and her commitment to first-class client relationships is something that I will be excited to see Aon’s clients benefit from.”
