Hobart College hockey senior captain TJ Schultz recently accepted an offer to work at Aon following graduation. A native of Evanston, Ill., he secured a position in the company’s Chicago office.
Aon is a leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions. The company works in 120 countries to empower results for clients by using proprietary data and analytics to deliver insights that reduce volatility and improve performance.
Schultz has interned with Aon since his first year, working in multiple positions in the company. Following graduation, he will work as an analyst in reinsurance solutions. The reinsurance solutions department provides risk transfer, claims advocacy and capital management solutions to help reduce volatility and build more resilient business, governments and communities.
In his new position, Schultz will help support broking teams in servicing their reinsurance clients, developing innovative solutions, leading consulting projects and giving strategic advice to address client needs. He will communicate with and participate in reinsurer meetings and discussions regarding client program placements and prepare formal reinsurance submission materials and executive-facing presentations. Additionally, Schultz will collaborate with various supporting teams within the reinsurance department such as catastrophe modeling, actuarial and contract working to bring the best of Aon to the client.
Schultz also spent a summer interning at Fermat Capital Management in Westport, Conn., a hedge fund that specializes in Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS). The internship gave him reinsurance market experience that he hopes will translate to his position at Aon.
A four-year member of the hockey team, Schultz played in 74 career games. He compiled 22 points on four goals and 18 assists. Schultz logged a career-high 11 points on a goal and 10 assists as a sophomore. Last year, he played in 27 games, posting 10 points on two goals and eight assists.
“My experience on the Hobart hockey team has really helped shape me into the person I am today,” Schultz said. “Not only has it given me a close knit group of friends throughout my four years who are like-minded individuals, but the time management skills I have learned have been incredibly beneficial. The Hobart hockey alumni network has also been incredible. I am extremely fortunate to be a part of it in the near future and I look forward to providing advice and networking opportunities for future Statesmen.”
Off the ice, Schultz is an economics and history double major. He is a two-time New England Hockey Conference All-Academic selection and was named an AHCA All-American Scholar as a sophomore. Last spring Schultz received the Joe Arnitz ’66 Memorial Sportsmanship Award.
