Aon Broker Jason Peery Recognized as a 2022 Hospitality Power Broker
Jason Peery, Resident Managing Director and EVP, Aon
Jason Peery’s philosophy of customer service is simple: Being a good broker isn’t about simply running through renewals; it’s about “being deeply involved in the companies that embody the industry,” he wrote in his Power Broker application.
With the majority of the Las Vegas strip properties being represented by Aon’s service team, he understands the challenges this industry faces, particularly during the last year when many reopened to visitors.
“Not only did we help navigate them through their renewals, but we walked side-by-side with them through their COVID response. I flew out to see properties on the first days of their reopening, and multiple times after. It was important to understand where the clients stood with regard to reopening and patron safety,” he said.
A major endeavor in 2021 was assisting with Eldorado’s acquisition of Caesars Entertainment, a highly complex transaction initially planned for 2020 and delayed due to the pandemic.
“He’s a good salesman — not pushy, but smart enough to understand where services might fit our different business needs,” said Stephanie Lepori, chief administrative and accounting officer at Caesars Entertainment. “We’ve accomplished quite a bit over the last year … We’ve done some compensation work; we’ve done captive work and even some business continuity type work as well.
Jason has been my point person, whether it was understanding the scope, driving the scope, determining cost or anything else.”
