Clive Stoddart will headsup Aon’s kidnap & ransom team

Clive Stoddart has returned to Aon to head up its kidnap and random team.

As executive director, he will be responsible for advising global companies on managing the safety of their employees and working with Aon’s global network to drive revenue growth.

Stoddart joins from Hiscox where he spent two years as managing director of Hiscox ASM, with a specialism in Latin American kidnapping.

He was previously at Aon since 2001 where his last role was as executive director for its crisis management team.

Stoddart said: “The opportunity arose to me to return to Aon at an interesting time for the kidnap and ransom market. As our global clients face increasing uncertainty and the potential for litigation from kidnap victims and families, we’ve also seen a spike in piracy attacks, making it an ideal time for the insurance industry to make its mark. I look forward to exploring the opportunities to grow the business and expand the team.”
