Two Aon Executives Honored as 'Women to Watch' by Business Insurance


CHICAGO, Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --

Aon Corporation (NYSE: AON) today announced that two executives have been named to Business Insurance magazine's 2010 "Women to Watch" list: Maggie Westdale, chief financial officer and chief operating officer of Aon Benfield and Marguerite Soeteman-Reijnen, chief broking officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Aon Risk Solutions. An Aon leader has been named to the "Women to Watch" list each year since the awards were launched in 2006.


Business Insurance's annual "Women to Watch" feature highlights an elite group of 25 women who are doing outstanding work in commercial insurance, reinsurance, risk management, employee benefits and related fields. A panel of the magazine's senior editors selected this year's honorees based on their recent professional achievements, influence on the marketplace and contributions to the advancement of women in business.

As chief financial officer and chief operating officer of Aon Benfield, the world's premier reinsurance intermediary and capital advisor, Westdale is responsible for the financial results of the business, with a focus on operational implications. She played a key role in the 2009 merger of Aon Re and Benfield Group and has been instrumental in improving how Aon Benfield measures and reports performance globally. Westdale has held numerous leadership roles throughout her career, including senior vice president of Corporate Financial Planning and Analysis at CNA, one of the largest commercial and property and casualty insurers in the U.S.

As chief broking officer for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Aon Risk Solutions, the worldwide leader in risk management and insurance broking, Soeteman-Reijnen oversees 30 national and two regional broking operations that focus on providing innovative broking products and solutions to Aon's global client base. Based on her success in the region, the chief broking officer role was established in additional regions in December 2009 as part of Aon Risk Solutions' new global broking strategy. Prior to her current role, Soeteman-Reijnen held several senior management positions at Aon, including managing director and head of origination for Aon Capital Markets in EMEA.

"The strength of Aon lies with our people, and Maggie and Marguerite excel at what Aon does best -- understanding our clients' distinct needs and offering innovative thinking and solutions that address today's unique risk and people challenges," said Greg Case, president and chief executive officer of Aon. "We congratulate them on earning this prestigious award and thank them for their important contributions to our business, our clients and the industry."
