Aon Broker William Coleman Recognized as a 2023 M&A Power Broker
William Coleman, Senior Vice President, Aon
Open dialogue and effective communication are the backbone of William Coleman’s work with energy companies, especially within the representations and warranties insurance (RWI) market.
That’s why when an energy company that was a first-time user of RWI needed advice, Coleman thoroughly explained the requirements necessary to establish a clean policy and acquired actionable quotes from carriers who were comfortable underwriting a sizable transaction within the oil and gas deal — the company’s largest acquisition to date.
“This enabled us to win a competitive auction and close quickly on the acquisition,” said a representative of the company.
Another longtime Aon customer has worked extensively with Coleman on RWI for the past couple of years.
“He’s been great,” a representative of the company said. “He worked on three or four transactions for me [in 2022] and did a great job on all of them. He was particularly helpful in putting the weight of Aon behind our company with an insurer in a cross-border U.S.-U.K. add-on acquisition early in 2022. He is extremely responsive and highly dedicated.”
Indeed, Coleman prides himself on staying very focused on trends and data that may be of interest to his clients, especially trends regarding pricing, coverage positions and claims. Working on hundreds of RWI transactions per year has provided Coleman with a firsthand understanding of how the RWI market continues to evolve.
