Carreira-Slabe was recently promoted to the role of Chief Compliance Officer for the Americas at Aon. In this expanded role across both North and South America, Carreira-Slabe is now responsible for evaluating and mitigating key risks for Aon’s largest region (data privacy, trade sanctions, corruption, competition, money laundering, licensing and permissions, conflict of interest, compensation transparency and disclosure). Working closely with business leaders across the globe, Carreira-Slabe ensures the right processes, policies and programs are in place for proper risk mitigation at Aon.

Under her leadership, Aon’s regional practice elevated earnings from roughly $100 million in 2006, to roughly $500 million today, and her team has grown from five to more than 20 in-house lawyers across the Latin America region. Of note, in November of 2016, Carreira-Slabe played a key role in Aon’s third largest acquisition of a company called Admix, a leading health and benefits brokerage and solutions firm in Brazil. Carreira-Slabe led the review and transition of roughly 1,500 third party brokers and has spent the last year and half working to integrate these entities into Aon.
