Aon has strengthened  the leadership of its SME/mid-market solutions and its sales, marketing and growth capabilities with two key senior internal appointments to its Australian team. 

Kevan Johnston has been appointed managing director, commercial and Aon has expanded Scott Willmot’s role as chief growth officer to incorporate the responsibilities of the chief commercial officer. 

James Baum, incoming chief executive at Aon Risk Solutions, said, “The two appointments are designed to build on the gains we’ve made in both our commercial (SME/mid-market) business and across our sales and industry group capabilities and will help drive our continuing and strategic growth agenda.

“Since joining Aon in early 2017 in the role of chief commercial officer Kevan has driven Aon’s strong focus on sales capabilities and execution, creating a culture of strong teamwork and collaboration amongst sales colleagues across the business.”

“Kevan is a client person and he understands the client landscape very well. He is team-focused leader who will continue the growth strategy we have built for the commercial business."

Willmot has driven a firm-wide focus on industry groups and joint sales efforts. He also brought together Aon’s two marketing teams and managed its growing sports partnership program. In his expanded role, he will align sales, marketing and bid management teams and continue to chair the Aon United Board.
