Savacool leads a team of more than 35,000 professionals in offices across six continents that collaborate with organizations to solve their most complex challenges in talent, retirement and health. She is responsible for setting the firm’s strategy, sponsoring relationships with its largest clients and overseeing its operations. Under Savacool’s leadership, the firm is continually developing innovative solutions, including Aon Hewitt’s pension risk transfer and delegated investment consulting offers and the Aon Active Health Exchange, the industry’s largest private health exchange solution for active employees.
“The incredible athletes of Special Olympics continue to remind us all that when we have courage, confidence and conviction, we can achieve great things,” said Savacool. “I am proud of our partnership with Special Olympics and am truly honored to serve as Chair of this year’s Inspire Greatness Gala.”
We are honored that Savacool has chosen to chair the Gala. As Chair, she is responsible for engaging new sponsors and guests, while also serving in a key role on an executive committee of corporate leaders.
