LONDON, June 16, 2023 - Aon plc (NYSE: AON), a leading global professional services firm, today announced that Paul Davies has taken on the role of vice chair of Aon plc, reporting to Aon CEO Greg Case and advising on the evolving risk management landscape and the development of the firm’s Risk Capital strategy.
