New cyber practice co-head appointed at Aon BenfieldReprints
Aon P.L.C. has appointed Luke Foord-Kelcey as co-head of Aon Benfield Group Ltd.’s global cyber practice group in London.
Mr. Foord-Kelcey will drive Aon Benfield’s cyber offering to insurers and reinsurers worldwide in conjunction with co-head Bill Henriques, the company said in a statement Tuesday. Both are based in New York.
Mr. Foord-Kelcey previously was at London-based insurance manager Tindall Riley & Co. Ltd., where he launched and managed Athena, a managing general agent which provides cyber and data privacy insurance and incident response management to professional services firms, among other things.
Prior to that, he was head of the communications, technology and media practice at JLT Specialty Ltd., a unit of London-based Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group P.L.C.
“Cyber risk has become a leading issue for many organizations as awareness of cloud computing, social media, corporate Bring Your Own Devices policies, big data, and state-sponsored espionage has grown and recently been amplified by President Obama’s Cybersecurity Executive Order,” John Bruno, London-based executive vice president of enterprise innovation and chief information officer at Aon Benfield, said in the statement.
Mark Lynch, a London-based specialist in human risk modeling, also is joining the cyber practice group, moving internally from Aon Benfield’s Impact Forecasting team, Aon Benfield said.
