To continue to serve clients effectively following Sandy, Aon plc, the leading global provider of risk management, human resource consulting and outsourcing solutions, today announced it has secured interim office space in Manhattan. The nearly 114,000-square-foot office, located at 299 Park Ave., can accommodate nearly 400 employees. It officially opened today for meetings.
"Our colleagues in the Northeast have shown remarkable resiliency in maintaining seamless operations and serving clients during a time of significant damage following Post-tropical Cyclone Sandy," said Tom Fitzgerald, CEO of Aon Risk Solutions' U.S. Retail Operations. "While our colleagues based at 199 Water St. have transitioned to Aon facilities in midtown Manhattan, Jericho, N.Y., Stamford, Conn., and Morristown, N.J in the immediate aftermath of Sandy, contracting temporary space in Manhattan provides another option from which Aon colleagues can work with clients, colleagues and carriers in this important time."
Aon anticipates returning to the 199 Water St. location in early January.
