CHICAGO, Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Even as civil authorities work to open its office at 199 Water St. in lower Manhattan, Aon Risk Solutions, the global risk management business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), continues to help organizations recover following Post-tropical Cyclone Sandy.
Before Sandy made landfall, Aon enacted its business continuity plan, which was designed and tested to allow the global organization to remain fully functional during such weather-related events.
"With our strong network of offices in the New York area, colleagues are using Aon facilities in midtown Manhattan, Jericho, N.Y., Stamford, Conn., and Morristown, N.J., to serve clients," said Tom Fitzgerald, CEO of Aon Risk Solutions U.S. Retail Operations. "We are the world's largest insurance broker and risk adviser. Our size and global network give us the flexibility to be nimble and respond to client needs without missing a beat."
"Our breadth of talent enables us to support clients immediately after disasters like Sandy," said Fitzgerald. "It has been remarkable to see how quickly the team adapted and is working with colleagues around the globe to serve clients," said Fitzgerald.
Aon anticipates not being able to return to the 199 Water St. location for a number of weeks.
Aon this week announced the creation of Flood Secure, a new insurance facility providing replacement coverage to U.S. organizations that have impaired aggregated flood limits on their property policy.
Aon's Rapid Response teams are working closely with clients surveying damage, taking steps to begin the claims process and getting businesses up and running again.
Clients have access to Aon's expertise via the Aon Situation Room, a resource that is updated with information and videos as well as a 24/7 client hotline (+1.866.283.7122) that directly connects clients to Aon account executives, brokers and claims experts.
