Aon UK has appointed Ian Summers as the new managing director of its ebusiness and market reform.

Mr Summers will take responsibility for thought leadership and strategic development of ebusiness initiatives throughout the business. He will also maintain his role as the director of change strategy for Aon Re Global, providing support for ebusiness strategy and initiatives.

Peter Harmer, CEO of Aon UK, said: In recent years Aon has played a leading role in market reform and adoption of ebusiness and Ian has been at the forefront of these efforts to transform the market.

Over the next few years the future direction of market reform and ebusiness will be a key determinant of the successful implementation of our growth strategy and will lead to a more flexible infrastructure, a key competitive advantage in a cyclical market.
