Aon Risk Services Southern California, a unit of Aon Corporation, has appointed Brendan Dolan as senior vice president of the financial services group.

Mr Dolan brings 20 years of industry experience to Aon and rejoins the firm from Marsh, where he was a senior vice president and senior client advisor in Marsh’s national financial and professional practice. Prior to joining Marsh in 2005, he was a senior vice president and broker for Aon’s financial services group in its national executive protection practice in Denver.

Robert Smith, senior vice president and financial services practice leader at Aon, said: I’m delighted to welcome Brendan back to Aon. His technical expertise and dedicated service to clients are among his greatest strengths – and are invaluable in the current environment in which insurers are looking for every opportunity to preserve their capital in the context of declining market rates.
