Phil Tompsett has been appointed national head of Aon's public sector risk team

Aon, a leading insurance broker and risk adviser in the UK, is revamping its public sector risks team under new national head, Phil Tompsett.

Aon’s presence in the public sector includes a 42% share of Local Authorities and 24% of upper quartile registered social landlords.

Tompsett’s goal is to further support risk managers in the public sector by bringing in broader expertise from across Aon, such as in fine art for museums.

Part of Aon’s European public sector team, the aim is that Phil will also bring experience of how issues such as environment have been handled in the EU to support UK risk managers confronting the same risks.

Tompsett commented: “The new Corporate Manslaughter Act, ever-present flood threats and data loss issues mean that managing risk is more important than ever for the public sector.”
