News : Aon Aligns Leadership Team to Enhance Global Broking Capabilities
Chicago February 22, 2016 -- Aon plc (NYSE:AON), a provider of risk management and human resource consulting and outsourcing, announces several leadership appointments to support the delivery of client solutions in the U.S. and enhance global broking capabilities for clients.
"In their new roles, these five talented leaders will continue to inspire our colleagues as we further integrate our capabilities to empower results for clients," said Mike O’Connor, chief executive officer of Aon Risk Solutions.
Warren Mula assumes the newly created global role of president of Aon Risk Solutions. He will serve as a trusted and seasoned strategic advisor across the business, working with colleagues as they solve clients’ complex challenges and help them capture emerging opportunities. Mula most recently served as chief executive officer for Aon Broking and will continue to support the broking agenda. Prior to this role, Warren served as chairman of Aon Risk Solutions, U.S., where he oversaw client service management activities.
Tom Fitzgerald becomes chief executive officer of Aon Broking. Fitzgerald previously led the Aon Risk Solutions U.S. Retail business as chief executive officer. In his new role, he will be responsible for driving innovative solutions with market partners, and further globalizing the firm’s industry-leading broking capabilities. Previously, Tom served as chief broking officer for Aon’s U.S. Commercial Risk, president of Aon Private Risk Management and spearheaded Aon’s entry into the technology industry with the creation of the Aon Risk Solutions Technology Practice.
O’Connor added, "We are committed to building on our industry-leading broking capabilities and believe that Tom’s recent experience leading our U.S. retail business will help accelerate the global agenda established under Warren’s leadership."
With Fitzgerald’s move to Aon Broking, two veteran executives will lead the Aon Risk Solutions U.S. Retail business moving forward: Lori Goltermann as chief executive officer and Steve Keogh as president. Together, Goltermann and Keogh will continue driving growth across the U.S. Retail business. Goltermann has held various leadership positions with Aon, including mergers and acquisitions practice leader, St. Louis office leader, account executive practice leader and, most recently, U.S. health and benefits practice leader. Keogh most recently served as chief administrative officer, Aon Risk Solutions, and head of human resources for Aon Risk Solutions Americas. Prior to that role, Keogh served as Aon Risk Solutions U.S. head of human resources, and was instrumental in developing the strategic talent agenda implemented by the business today.
"Lori and Steve have been successful leaders throughout their long careers at Aon," said Fitzgerald. "Both have incredibly deep knowledge of our firm, our capabilities and the people who set us apart from our competitors. We have built tremendous momentum within ARS U.S. Retail and I am confident this will continue with Lori and Steve helping to lead the way."
Will Sneden becomes U.S. Health and Benefits Practice leader, building upon the foundation Goltermann and team established. Sneden has successfully led and grown all segments of the U.S. Health and Benefits business. He is known for his commitment to innovation and focus on understanding and anticipating clients’ needs.
