Gallagher Appoints 2 Former Willis Aviation Brokers as Divisional Directors

Arthur J. Gallagher has appointed two former Willis aviation brokers, Mark Champion and Paul Rogers, as divisional directors.

With combined experience of nearly 70 years, Gallagher said the hiring of these “industry stalwarts [underlines] its commitment to the aviation arena.”

Champion joined Gallagher this week to begin the next phase of an “already long and accomplished career in the London market,” which spans more than 30 years, said Gallagher in a statement.

Most recently he served as regional director for Continental Europe for Willis Towers Watson where he had responsibility for a significant proportion of the aerospace division’s budget, was a member of its leadership team and led a team of 15. At the same time, he continued to manage a large portfolio of clients as a risk placement specialist to the airline industry, with a core focus on European Airlines, added Gallagher.

Champion began his career at Leslie and Godwin in 1985, before moving to the general aviation division of Willis in 1994.

Rogers will join Gallagher later in the summer, bringing nearly 40 years’ London market experience.

After an initial stint on the underwriting side, Rogers made the transition into broking with Cuthbert Heath where he made his mark as a senior broker specializing in business emanating from the U.S. on a wholesale basis, reinsurance from South America and new business development in Mexico.

Upon joining Willis Faber and Dumas in 1984, he “developed a truly global footprint as a divisional director covering South and Central America, Continental Europe and the Middle East,” said Gallagher.

Latterly he served as both executive director and client advocate at Willis, retaining accountability for a portfolio of clients within the aviation sector of the transportation practice.

“Today’s aviation market is arguably more challenging than ever, but we see that as every reason to grow, expand and develop new products – rather than a reason not to,” commented Mark Walters, executive director of Aviation for Arthur J. Gallagher.

“To win out in such a tough market, you need to invest in the best. And there are few more experienced than Mark and Paul, or held in higher regard by clients,” he said.

“The longevity and strength of market relationships they have built and their continued focus on providing a personalized, innovative and responsive end-to-end client service make them ideally suited to join our team.”
