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”.

Ironshore snags Aon executive to head expanded M&A unit

Ironshore snags Aon executive to head expanded M&A unit

Ironshore Inc. said Thursday it has recruited James R. Swan from Aon P.L.C. to be head of its expanded mergers and acquisitions insurance, Americas unit.

He will oversee M&A activities for multi-jurisdictional transactions within North and Latin America, Ironshore said in a statement, reporting to Rowan Bamford, Ironshore’s global head of mergers and acquisitions and tax.

At Aon, the New York-based Mr. Swan was most recently global chief operating officer of the M&A and transaction solutions division.

Navine Aggarwal, who previously was head of Americas M&A for Ironshore, joined Ascot Group Ltd. in January.

Ironshore also hired four additional M&A industry specialists for the New York office: Valentine Han, formerly a corporate associate with Reed Smith L.L.P.; Scott G. Pegram, most recently an M&A underwriter with American Insurance Group Inc.; Victoria Rosales, who comes to Ironshore from Willkie Farr & Gallagher L.L.P.; and Hilary Weiss, most recently an underwriter at XL Catlin. 

Cristina Merry del Val, M&A production specialist in Miami, will also report to Mr. Swan. She was most recently a specialty lines manager with Ironshore for Latin America.
