Aon has appointed Angela San Diego as client director and national practice leader of aged care, driving firm’s expanding client portfolio across Australia.
San Diego would focus on building knowledge of the aged care industry to further boost Aon’s risk offerings and value-added solutions across residential aged care, retirement villages, and home and community aged care services.
She had 22 years’ industry experience as an insurance broker and risk adviser, previously the national aged care practice leader for an international firm.
Director of industry verticals, Kevin O’Reilly, said as an experienced broker in the aged care and health sectors, San Diego would be tasked with building “a truly vertical approach” across the firm’s aged care business.
National practice leader, cyber risk, Fergus Brooks, said aged care was an important sector of the Australian economy, but it was also most vulnerable to the risks of cyber-attacks, system failures and data breaches.
“We have seen several cyber breaches in aged care organisations, such as data loss and system outages, and we look forward to working closely with Angela to identify ways to better mitigate these threats,” he said.
