Phil Clement, Aon's Global Chief Marketing and Communications Officer, said:
"This announcement is the next step in the evolution of our partnership with Manchester United. Together, Aon and Manchester United have been working on two critical issues for a growing global business – managing risk and highly performing teams.
"The first phase of our relationship brought Aon an explosion in brand awareness. This phase of our partnership is a more holistic approach where we can use our expertise and create a global dialogue and knowledge share around the fields of talent, healthcare, risk, retirement, and data and analytics to help deliver great performance and great results.
"As a business our ambition is to empower economic and human possibility and our partnership with Manchester United is the ideal way to do this."It is a privilege for Aon to be associated with the world-famous Manchester United training facility. As a symbol of innovation and excellence in the world of sport, it is revered around the world. We have the utmost admiration and respect for the 800 team members at Manchester United and the work they do and look forward to working with them to help build sustainable performance around the world, like we do for all our clients." This year's Tour 2013 presented by Aon will focus on engaging with the Club's 325 million followers in Asia Pacific and regions where Aon has a strong base of operations. The Tour 2013 involves matches in Bangkok, Sydney, Yokohama, Osaka and Hong Kong as Manchester United and Aon continue to take their partnership to every corner of the world. In addition, Aon and Manchester United will be dedicated to extending the principles of the work at the Aon Training Complex by innovating with partners and sharing ideas through The Manchester United Business Network, a global programme of research projects, exclusive business events and seminars for senior executives, addressing critical issues in the economy. Aon's work with the Manchester United Foundation engages both organisations in a shared mission to help communities at risk and empower people across the globe.
