Aon renewable energy team appoints new broker (USA)

Aon, the leading insurance broker and risk management firm, has appointed Bruce Grant as a further specialist to its renewable energy team. He starts his role as senior broker on 1st September.

This is the second appointment in 2010 to this team, which was established in Spring 2008, underlining Aon’s commitment to this growing sector and the realisation of renewable energy gaining an increasing share of the global energy mix.

Bruce Grant joins from Marsh where he managed the renewable energy team and designed and placed major offshore wind policies. He brings over a decade of renewable energy experience, including working on the first offshore wind deals placed in the London market. He also co-designed what have since become the standard offshore wind policy wordings.

Commenting on his appointment, Bruce said: “I look forward to playing a part in consolidating Aon’s position as the leading broker in the offshore wind sector and helping to grow Aon’s position with regard to the rest of the renewables market”.

Tom Sexton, head of global renewable energy, commented: “Having established the renewable energy team at Aon only two years ago, the team has gone from strength to strength, working on some of the biggest renewable energy deals of the last few years, and growing to become the leader in the market. Having worked with Bruce previously, I look forward to welcoming him to the team.”
