Former Banco Santander chief executive Jose Antonio Álvarez has joined the board of directors at broking giant Aon.

The new Aon board member, who joined Santander in 2002 and was CEO from 2015 to 2022, is expected to provide “enhanced expertise” to the brokerage.

“We are pleased to welcome Jose Antonio to Aon’s board of directors,” chair Lester B. Knight said in a release. “His experience in his role as CEO of Santander and his global financial and management background will bring enhanced expertise to our board.

“We’re looking forward to gaining new insights from the experience he brings to the board, which will support Aon in the firm’s work in helping clients make better business decisions.”

Álvarez, who currently serves as vice chair of Santander’s board, assumed his post at Aon on January 24.

He commented: “I am looking forward to… providing new insights and expertise to help Aon support clients in a world of increased volatility.

“I’m excited to get to know and work closely with my fellow board members as Aon seeks to drive innovation and growth designed to ensure that Aon’s clients are better informed, better advised, and able to make better decisions on a global and local level.”
