John Turner joins re/insurance broker Ed Bermuda from his previous chairman role for Aon’s commercial risk solutions UK and Americas business

The Bermuda arm of re/insurance broker Ed has a new chairman: John Turner, who joins from Aon.


He joins from Aon, where he was most recently chairman of Aon’s commercial risk solutions UK and Americas business.

Turner has more than 40 years’ re/insurance experience, 30 of which have been in Lloyd’s broking; he has led teams covering property, casualty, terrorism, power, energy and construction.

He will report into Chris Bonard, CEO of Ed Bermuda for the newly-created role.

“It’s fantastic to welcome John to the team; he brings a weight of experience, as well as longstanding relationships with clients and the market,” Bonard said.

Turner added: “I’m looking forward to joining Ed in Bermuda, supporting Chris as we build a cross class team of highly motivated professionals, as well as being very much hands on with day to day broking.

“Ed Bermuda is creating meaningful new capacity as the leading wholesale broker on the island, supported by world class technology. It’s an exciting venture to be part of.”
