History of Aon

Aon’s roots can be traced to the integration of Ryan Insurance Group and Combined International Corporation in 1982. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the company expanded globally through organic growth and acquisitions.

The firm has been able to acquire some of the most well-known companies in the insurance and consulting industries – including Hudig-Langeveldt; Rollins Burdick Hunter; Reinsurance Agency; Miller, Mason, & Dickenson; Alexander & Alexander; and Benfield.

Aon aims to be the most responsive, client-focused insurance and consulting services firm in the world.
