Jodie Wiseman said, “I am very pleased to have been promoted to client manager. As a progressive company, Aon has fully supported and encouraged me, while its flexible approach to work means that I can continue to progress my career as well as raise my family.”
Tracey Threlfall, Aon’s regional managing director North said, “at the heart of Aon’s culture is the belief that diverse, inclusive teams deliver the best outcomes for clients and the company’s long-term success. Jodie thoroughly deserves to be promoted – she is talented, hard working and has a bright future ahead of her.”

Earlier this year, SportsShoes.com announced its intention to become the world’s most sustainable running equipment retailer by 2025. Called ‘Leave No Footprints’, SportsShoes.com’s sustainability strategy also includes becoming carbon net-zero in the future.
Welcoming Jon to the company, SportsShoes.com managing director, Brett Bannister, said, “Jon and I have talked at length about his plans to make SportsShoes.com a best-in-class customer experience, as well as the most technology-led retailer in running and performance sports, and we have already started to implement some of his ideas.”
