Michael Eve, chief executive of Aon Risk Services, has retired and will not be returning to work this New Year.

Eve will not be replaced directly as Aon has consolidated its business into one, with a 12-member board. The risk services representative on the board will be Robert Harrison who is still waiting to find out his job title.

Eve, 59, said: “Having reached 59, it is time to let others take the helm and move on to seek new areas of satisfaction. I am very proud of the achievements of the Aon Risk Services team.”
