The London-headquartered broking giant said the appointment is part of an ongoing series of actions aimed at further strengthening alignment and accelerating momentum in bringing its Aon United growth strategy closer to clients.
“As we continue our Aon United journey, we have gained greater clarity about our specific needs for recruiting, retaining, and engaging colleagues,” stated Aon chief executive Greg Case. “Lisa’s leadership attributes and experience make her uniquely positioned to shape the firm’s culture, talent, and diversity and inclusion strategies in this new role as chief people officer.
“She will build on her recent successes, combining her passion for people leadership with her proven ability to deliver business results.”
Commenting on her new remit, Stevens said: “What drew me to the firm initially is what continues to motivate me today. The opportunities that exist for both colleagues and clients through our Aon United growth strategy are unparalleled.
“I have spent the past year listening and learning from Aon colleagues about what is important to them as we strive to bring the best of our firm to our clients.”
The Wells Fargo alumnus added: “I’ve spent time with clients who have raved about our unmatched ability to help them solve some of their toughest problems and maximise their performance, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to bring it all together in this role.”
Aon employs 50,000 people in 120 countries.
