Aon Corporation announced that David C. Thompson has joined Aon Re US as VP in their San Francisco office, and that Al Orendorff has been named to the newly created position of director of public relations.
Thompson, who has broad experience in the field of reinsurance, will consult and advise US property and casualty insurance companies to further enhance their financial performance. He joins Aon after 12 years as a VP at American Re, where he worked with all lines of property and casualty business, and transactions composed of a mix of traditional and finite risk programs.
The bulletin indicated that, “Prior to joining Aon, Orendorff spent 14 years with The Allstate Corporation at the company’s corporate headquarters in Northbrook, Illinois as both media executive and senior manager of that company’s national media relations unit. After leaving Allstate, Orendorff spent two years as senior associate and vice president at FRB Weber Shandwick (formerly The Financial Relations Board.”
“We are truly delighted to have the benefit of Al’s considerable media relations expertise here at Aon,” stated Bob Rosholt, executive VP of Aon Corporation. Aon probably could have benefited from his expertise a bit earlier, given the recent spate of bad news concerning the the world’s second largest broker.
