Stuart Lawson has been appointed head of Aon Trade Credit (ATC), the UK’s leading credit insurance broker. He will service existing clients as well as seeking new business, “in an era when credit insurance has become a crucial component of a company’s financial health,” Aon said.
Aon said its trade credit division employs a “team of 100 employees in seven offices across the UK.” Lawson will be “responsible for delivering credit insurance cover and receivables management, including debt collection, buyer information and trade finance.”
He has worked for ATC for 15 years, initially joining as a graduate with the Credit Insurance Association. Previously head of business development, he will be bringing experience in this field to drive business where ATC has been historically strong in multinational and mid-sized corporate accounts, and further establish the broker in the SME arena.
Commenting on today’s conditions, Lawson stated: “Despite the challenges of today’s volatile economic environment, we have the opportunity to optimize the benefits of coverage through policy management and the advice that we provide to clients, along
with new initiatives. Equally important is the additional investment in, and focus on, our people through training and personal development so they can continue to provide the best advice.”
Lawson will report to Robert Brown, CEO of Aon Corporate, who praised Lawson’s ability and experience in the field.
