Aon plc, a professional services firm, has appointed Paul Winrow as head of office for Leeds and Sheffield. Paul takes over from Karen Wilczek, who retired after a career of over 37 years with Aon. In his new role, Paul will be responsible for the firm’s Leeds Embankment and Sheffield offices, as well as the 36-strong Corporate Commercial Risk Solutions team. This role expands Paul’s current position as the head of office of the firm’s Leicester Corporate Commercial Risk Solutions office. With 22 years’ industry experience, Paul will implement the national and regional strategy, develop colleagues, and drive a positive and supportive culture to ensure clients receive the highest level of service to achieve their goals.
Paul joined Aon in 2016 as client director and his remit expanded over time to include managing colleagues and joining the Leeds and Sheffield office management teams, before being promoted to head of office for Leicester in October 2022. Prior to joining Aon, he held roles with Willis Towers Watson and Marsh.
Paul Winrow said: “I am proud to have been appointed head of Aon’s Leeds and Sheffield offices at such an exciting time for the firm and following a busy and successful 2023. I am surrounded by a talented and knowledgeable team, and I’m looking forward to developing colleagues to ensure that they can continue to support our extensive roster of clients with their commercial insurance needs. It has always been my ambition to progress into a leadership role, and Aon has provided me with the opportunity to achieve this goal. I am really looking forward to building on all Karen has achieved and working with my colleagues and clients across Leeds and Sheffield.”
