Aon appoints global super yacht leader

London-based global professional services firm Aon has named Emma Carpenter to the role of global super yacht leader. She will join Aon in London in early March and will drive the development of Aon’s super yacht insurance broking business globally.

Carpenter has 17 years’ experience in the marine sector and joins from Willis Towers Watson, where she has served as a super yacht insurance broker for more than a decade. Prior to this she worked as a super yacht insurance broker for Ed (formerly Cooper Gay) and before that as an underwriting assistant for British Marine.

Aon global marine CEO Lee Meyrick said that “our yacht business forms a key part of Aon’s marine offering, and, we see significant potential for growth in this area. Emma brings a strong 17-year track record of delivering for clients in the yacht market and is highly regarded in the industry.”
