Long-standing director Andrew McKenna steps down

Long-standing Aon board director Andrew McKenna quit shortly before the company completed its move to London yesterday.

Aon announced in a regulatory filing late on Friday that McKenna, who had served on Aon’s board since 1982 after joining from Ryan Group, had decided to resign.

News reports said McKenna had abstained from the shareholder vote on Aon’s shift of headquarters to London from Delaware. However, Aon said in the statement that McKenna’s decision to step down”was not due to any disagreements with the company on any matter relating to the company’s operations, policies or practices”.

Aon completed the move of headquarters to the UK yesterday. Under the change, shareholders swapped their shares in previous holding company Aon Corporation for shares in the new UK-based entity Aon plc.
