Aon Names West to Head UK Business Continuity Practice

December 6, 2010

Aon announced that Vincent West has joined Aon Risk Solutions’, its global risk management business, Risk Consulting team in the UK to “head up, and build upon the success of its business continuity practice.”

He has over 20 years experience in business continuity and risk management, and will be “consolidating and enhancing the intellectual capital and business continuity tools that already exists within the team.” West most recently was managing consultant at Marsh Risk Consulting, and prior to that has worked as head of business continuity services for Norwich Union Risk Services, and Cable and Wireless.

Dr. Grant Foster, head of enterprise risk management at Aon commented: “With Vincent’s joining the team, Aon is now more than ever in a leading position to help businesses cope with such events. I look forward to working closely with him to ensure we remain at the forefront of thinking when it comes to business continuity and delivering excellence to our clients.”

West added: “Aon is renowned for its thought leadership, outstanding teams and innovation, and I look forward to contributing to this. Business continuity has recently jumped up the list of priorities for boards, particularly as some ratings agencies now require well rehearsed plans to be in place. They are increasingly looking for ways to disaster-proof their business, and I look forward to working with Aon and our clients to build leading solutions.”
