Aon PLC has launched a new ventures group aimed at identifying and capitalizing on opportunities for growth.
The insurance broker named Tony Goland, its chief human resources officer, to the post of chief innovation officer and made him responsible for organizing the new group.
Also joining the new ventures group will be Aon CFO Christa Davies; Bryon Ehrhart, global head of strategic growth and development; and COO John Bruno, who is also CEO of data and analytic services.
Goland's appointment is effective Nov. 1. Siobhan Cifelli, global human resources leading for Aon's operating committee, will serve as interim chief human resources officer while the company searches for a successor to Goland.
