Maureen Toomey, Aon
COO, commercial risk solutions broking
Maureen Toomey is responsible for executing Aon’s broking strategy across commercial risk solutions in the US. A consummate leader, Toomey also champions diversity and inclusion across every part of the firm. “Inclusion is fundamental to driving change, which accelerates problem-solving and impacts Aon’s ability to continue to be a leader in the industry,” she says. To further her efforts, Toomey mentors colleagues and has partnered with other insurance companies on diversity initiatives.
Toomey says the past year has made it clear how critical it is for organizations to take a fact-based, analytical approach to decision-making. “After more than a decade of largely favorable market conditions, 2019 saw a dramatic shift across most insurance classes of business and product lines,” she says. “When we use analytics to stretch ourselves beyond the transaction, we find challenges that may sometimes feel beyond us but are often what distinguishes us from the pack and leads to greater reward, personally and for the organization.”
