Aon announced that environmental insurance specialist Simon Johnson, Ph.D., has joined the firm as director in the Aon Environmental Services Group, a unit of Aon Risk Services.

He will be based in London, and will coordinate the delivery of the unit’s environmental services to clients in the United Kingdom, Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Aon noted: “Dr. Johnson has more than 29 years of experience, the last 20 in the assessment, management, financial valuation and transfer of environmental risks. He has specialized in land, property and business transactions. Formerly the technical and underwriting director of Certa (UK) Ltd., Dr. Johnson was responsible for designing and underwriting a range of environmental insurance and risk transfer products and solutions written by Allianz. In this capacity, he wrote some 300 separate policies covering more than 1,000 different sites and thousands of properties in the United Kingdom and Europe.”

Peter Breitstone, CEO of Aon Environmental Services Group commented: “Companies, governments and investors in Europe, the Middle East and Africa are becoming increasingly aware of the risks and opportunities associated with environmental and sustainability issues.” As a result Aon is beefing up its capabilities in the field.
