Putting M&A Experience to Work

Her investment banking skills came in handy after Aon’s Katie Rooney switched career paths to finance.

Katie Rooney is just about a month into her new role at insurance brokerage Aon Corp. as chief operating officer for global finance and shared services. It’s a quick move forward for the 32-year-old Chicago area native, who previously served as Aon’s assistant treasurer for corporate finance/mergers and acquisitions.

Rooney attended the University of Michigan and then spent the first nine years of her career at Morgan Stanley. Her last position was vice president in investment banking in the healthcare group, where she worked with medical technology companies on all aspects of their debt, equity and M&A activity.
