After working her way up in her field, Darla Herring became a senior consultant with Aon plc, a company that provides risk management, insurance and reinsurance, human resources solutions, and outsourcing services. Her role includes holding day-to-day contact with the clients to market proposal negotiation, assisting clients through ACA reports, and communicating with employees regarding strategic planning.
Over the course of her career, Ms. Herring gained a number of skills that have beneficial in her journey with Aon plc. While attending cosmetology school and pursuing a technical degree, she learned to be customer savvy and learned how to listen to clients. Ms. Herring then pursued continuing education on new developments in the industry, and when COBRA came out, she partnered with vendors to stay abreast of everything. She also has experience in human resources with a primary focus on benefits. While in that position, Ms. Herring was able to address a number of issues, which lead to her earning more responsibilities. Eventually, she was offered the opportunity to go back to school to earn a producer’s license, which was a great source of pride for her because it meant that her hard work and potential had been recognized. Ms. Herring is also proud of receiving the Shining Star Award from Gallagher, because she was selected by her peers for going above and beyond what was expected.
Ms. Herring completed coursework in computer science and Microsoft at Belleville Area Community College, and earned a cosmetologist degree from the Granite City School of Cosmetology. When she isn’t working, she serves as a caretaker for her uncle, who is mentally challenged.
