On the move: the latest East Midlands hires

Russell Boswell-Munday

Alfreton-based LGH & Rotrex Group has appointed Russell Boswell-Munday as LGH’s new sales director for Europe and the UK.

Boswell-Munday has over 25 years of experience in the hire industry and has managed various sales teams during his career.

In his new role, he will be managing all aspects of LGH’s sales division across the whole of Europe, including continuing its growth in additional territories. He will be leading on strategy and structure as well as budgets and turnover development. Prior to joining LGH, Russell worked at Andrew Sykes Group as a major account director.

Boswell-Munday said: “I have long admired LGH, so I am excited to be joining at what is a time of real growth for the business. After my first meeting with Andy Mault – CEO – I quickly realised that our thoughts and ambitions were aligned. I am now looking forward to building on the Group’s strong reputation and adding commercial value by driving sales and our market share right across Europe.”

Also joining the LGH & Rotrex Group’s board of directors are: Don Wilkinson, who has been promoted to Rotrex’s sales director; and Phil Smith, who has been promoted to group operations director.

Richard Lloyd

Aon has appointed Richard Lloyd as client manager responsible for a number of clients in Aon’s national risk solutions team, based in Leicester.

The appointment marks a return to Aon for Lloyd who previously spent over eight years managing client service advisers.

He said: “In my previous role as a commercial service manager at Aon, I worked closely with the client-facing teams and always knew that I’d like to channel my experience in brokerage so that I too could build closer relationships directly with the clients.

“I left the firm for a brief period to focus on this, but the draw of working for Aon was just too strong, and so I jumped at the chance to take up this new role when it arose. Working with the team to ensure that our high value national clients receive first class service and risk appropriate solutions is something that I am genuinely very excited about.”

Paul Winrow, head of office for commercial risk solutions in Leicester, added: “It’s always a pleasure to welcome a seasoned insurance professional into the Aon team and in this instance, it is particularly so as Richard is already very much part of the Aon family.

“His commitment to getting under the skin of each client’s bespoke needs, ensures he takes a solutions-centric approach and builds strong relationships with each client he encounters. Welcoming Richard back into the Aon team here in Leicester is a genuine pleasure and I look forward to witnessing the impact he has.”
