Aon plc has appointed Stéphane Lespérance as president of commercial risk and health solutions in Canada.
In his new role, Lespérance will be responsible for the day-to-day leadership of the commercial risk and health solution teams in Canada, Aon said in a press release Monday. He will report directly to Christine Lithgow, until her retirement at the end of this year.
“Stéphane will work closely with the Canada and North America leadership teams to advance a culture of industry leading innovation, client experience and colleague development,” Aon said.
Lespérance’s 25 years of experience in the insurance brokerage and risk management fields has positioned him well for this leadership responsibility, Aon said. He has been with Aon for 18 years and has held several management roles, most recently serving as executive vice president for Canada.
His expertise spans broking and risk, and includes developing insurance strategies for large multi-national corporations. Lespérance is also involved in several charitable organizations focused on supporting the community, sports and youth.
