Aon have announced a four-year partnership with Rowing Australia to become a major sponsor of the Australian Rowing Team and Rowing Australia. The national deal also appoints Aon as the exclusive risk and insurance partner of the national body.

Aon Risk Solutions Australia CEO Lambros Lambrou, said: “Aon globally has had a very strong and successful record of supporting elite sports and athletes. In Australia, we are making the same commitment and we are thrilled to be embarking on this journey with the Rowing Australia family.

“Aon’s core values are very closely aligned to Rowing Australia’s, which includes integrity, diversity, collaboration and high performance. Our partnership allows us to extend our shared values to the wider rowing community in Australia to not only reach its full potential, but also to make social impact at a grass roots level.

“Specifically, this partnership will see us use our expertise in risk, retirement, talent and health to empower Rowing Australia.”

The partnership will see Aon become the naming rights sponsor of rowing’s marquee annual event, the Sydney International Rowing Regatta, as well as providing a number of engagement and activation rights to connect with the broader rowing community throughout the year.

Chairman and President of Rowing Australia Rob Scott expressed the national body’s delight to be able to announce a long term partnership with such a respected and global brand in Aon.

“In our discussions with Aon over the past year, there was a clear alignment between what the Australian Rowing Team stands for and Aon’s core values.  Put simply, we are always in the constant and unrelenting pursuit of excellence and this is also what Aon strives for everyday”, Mr Scott said.
