AON establishes New Ventures Group and appoints Chief Innovation Officer

AON has announced that it is taking another significant step to realize the full potential of its AON United growth strategy by establishing a New Ventures Group and assigning a team of proven senior leaders to further accelerate the creation of new value sources for its clients.

Initial members of AON's New Ventures Group Leadership Team are as follows:

  • Tony GOLAND, Chief Human Resources Officer, has been appointed Chief Innovation Officer and will be responsible for organizing Aon's New Ventures Group.
  • Christa DAVIES, Chief Financial Officer at AON.
  • Bryon EHRHART, Global Head of Strategic Growth and Development.
  • John BRUNO, Chief Operations Officer at AON and Chief Executive Officer of Data & Analytic Services.
GOLAND's new role is effective November 1st, 2018.

Aon has appointed Siobhan CIFELLI, currently the Global Human Resources Leader for the AON Operating Committee, to the role of interim CHRO while AON completes a comprehensive internal and external search to fill the CHRO role.

"Earlier this year we took a series of steps - including the creation of the AON Operating Committee, the appointment of our new co-presidents, and our transition to a single AON brand - all of which were designed to make it easier for our colleagues to bring the best of AON to clients and help us deliver on the growth potential of our firm," said AON CEO, Greg CASE.

"With that growth foundation in place, we are taking additional steps to further accelerate innovation that delivers new value to clients and expands the marketplace. As Chief Innovation Officer, Tony GOLAND will be responsible for mobilizing the activities of our New Ventures Group, which will include senior leaders from across the firm - including myself - who will increasingly commit their time to the rapid incubation and delivery of new sources of client value."
