22nd November 2021 - Author: Matt Sheehan

Re/insurance broker Aon has announced the appointment of Jillian Slyfield as its new Chief Innovation Officer, effective December 1st.

Slyfield joined Aon in 2015 and most recently served as Digital Economy Practice Leader, where she addressed digital disruption of traditional industries and the on-demand economy.

Prior to this, she served as an advisor to mid-size and global organizations while also working for insurance broker Marsh and a number of national multi-risk insurance companies.

At Aon, Slyfield serves on the firm’s Global Inclusive Leadership Council and advises several emerging technology businesses.

With this transition, she will assume the responsibilities of Tony Goland, who is set retire at the end of 2021.

Goland joined Aon as Chief Human Resources Officer before becoming its first Chief Innovation Officer 2018, and he previously spent 30 years at McKinsey & Company, where he was a senior partner. He will continue to serve as an advisor to Case through the end of the year.

Upon taking up her new position, Slyfield, who is based in San Francisco, will report to Aon CEO Greg Case and join the Aon Executive Committee, which is responsible for executing on the firm’s Aon United Blueprint.

“In a world that is more volatile, interdependent and faster moving than ever before, the risks our clients face are becoming more frequent and severe and the need for better decisions has never been greater,” said Case.

“Innovation is a core component of our Aon United Blueprint and how we bring the best of Aon to our clients. Jillian is a proven Aon leader who has the skills and expertise to work across geographies and solution lines to accelerate innovation to better address unmet client need.”

Slyfield also commented: “Innovation is core to Aon, and I couldn’t think of a more exciting opportunity than to bring state-of-the-art solutions to our clients so that they can thrive and grow now and into the future.”

“I’m looking forward to working with the Aon Executive Committee and colleagues across Aon to create new sources of value that will help our clients as they address emerging risks.”
