Unilever Taps Aon For Consulting Services

July 14, 2008

Aon Corporation, a provider of global risk management and consulting services, has formed a global partnership with Unilever to work with its business lines worldwide.

According to a statement to the press, the agreement enables Unilever to approach its buying through the services of Aon’s core strengths—risk management consulting, insurance brokerage and human capital benefits consulting.

“This collaboration and integrated approach clearly demonstrates the significant depth and breadth of resources that Aon can bring to a major organization such as Unilever,” said Steve McGill, chairman and chief executive officer of Aon Risk Services.

“It’s obviously prudent to have a practical and well-organized approach to risk management,” said Pascal Visee, group treasurer for Unilever, about the three-year contract.

According to Andrew Appel, chairman of Aon Consulting, “By combining the expertise of Aon’s risk and human capital consulting units, Unilever will receive a complete risk management solution on a global scale.”
