Paul, who joined Aon in 2000, also leads Aon Benfield’s investment banking team and is responsible for providing investment banking products and services to Aon’s clients on a global basis.

It has truly been a privilege to serve our clients in this space and I look forward to the opportunities that will arise moving forward.”
