Aon to Work With American Corporate Partners on Career Mentoring Program for Veterans

Firm to Host Second Wounded Warriors Event in New York City

CHICAGO, Dec. 20, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

Joining a growing list of corporate partners supporting America's war veterans, Aon Corporation, the leading global provider of risk management services, insurance and reinsurance brokerage, and human resource consulting and outsourcing (NYSE: AON), today announced it will work with American Corporate Partners (ACP), as part of a nationwide career mentoring program for the generation of veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.


While ACP, a New York-based nonprofit, is not a jobs program, it provides a unique career development opportunity for veterans, from former enlisted members and officers to current Reservists and National Guard members, who have served on active duty after 2001. Also welcome in the program are the spouses of those service members severely wounded or who died while serving.

Approximately 50 Aon professionals around the country will be matched with veterans in Chicago, New York, Houston, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Denver and Baltimore/Washington, cities which currently have a demand for mentors. Aon also will make a financial contribution to ACP in support of its endeavors.

Sid Goodfriend, ACP's founder, said, "I don't believe there is another program like this in the country. With so many veterans returning to a tough job market, the need for guidance and advice on career issues is very real. We are delighted that so many Aon employees have volunteered their time to assist transitioning veterans, and we look forward to a long-standing relationship between American Corporate Partners and Aon."

"Aon has a profound appreciation for the men and women in our Armed Forces," said Greg Case, president and chief executive officer of Aon. "So it is an honor and a privilege for us to help those in the military community to transition to the private sector."

The Aon Salute to America's Wounded Warriors was held in Chicago in November 2009 to assist disabled veterans find meaningful employment in northern Illinois. A similar event by Aon is scheduled in New York in February, 2011.

Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and current Aon Board Member, General Richard B. Myers, added, "This is a very important program for our service men and women, and I am confident that they will greatly benefit from the experience and insight of Aon's colleagues who will participate in this partnership."

Aon joins a growing list of corporate partners including AT&T, Deloitte LLP, General Electric, Goldman Sachs, The Home Depot, IBM, JP Morgan Chase, Liberty Mutual Group, News Corporation, PepsiCo, Travelers, and Verizon Communications. Employees from each company volunteer to mentor veterans in one-on-one partnerships for one year.

ACP is currently accepting applications from qualified veterans in its seventeen participating cities. Those interested may apply on-line:
