BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

LONDON-Finalizing initial consolidation plans, Aon Group Inc. named Alan H. Colls and Dennis L. Mahoney to head up the merged London specialty and reinsurance operations of Nicholson Jenner Leslie Group Ltd., Alexander Howden Group Ltd. and Bain Hogg Group P.L.C.

Mr. Colls, former chairman of NJL, was named chairman of the combined company-Aon Group Ltd.-and Mr. Mahoney, former chairman and chief executive officer of Alexander Howden, was named deputy chairman and CEO.

Ron A. Iles, former chairman of Alexander Howden, was named chairman of Aon Re Worldwide with responsibilities for the global coordination of Aon's reinsurance operations. Michael D. O'Halleran, president of Aon Group Inc., previously held the position. Mr. Iles also was named chairman of Aon UK with responsibilities for coordinating all of Aon's operations in the United Kingdom, including insurance brokerage and consulting. Anthony Howland-Jackson, former chairman of Bain Hogg, was named deputy chairman of Aon UK and will assist Mr. Iles in overseeing Aon's U.K. operations.

The appointments end speculation circulating around the London market, which was waiting to see who would stay and who would go after Aon's recent acquisition of Bain Hogg and then Alexander & Alexander Services Inc. in the fourth quarter of last year (BI, Jan. 27).
