Lockton appoints Marsh’s Beresheim to lead Specialty Practices

19th August 2019 - Author: Charlie Wood

Global re/insurance brokerage Lockton has appointed Devin Beresheim to succeed the recently-retired Brian Kawamoto as Executive Vice President of its Specialty Practices business.

Beresheim-DevinBeresheim, who joins from Marsh with nearly 30 years’ experience, will report to Lockton’s US President and Chief Operating Officer, Peter Clune.

“Using a baseball analogy, Devin is the rare five-tool player,” said Clune.

“He is well-respected in the marketplace with deep carrier relationships and is a trusted advisor to Fortune 500 clients. He’s a great recruiter, has a strategic business mind, and is a great leader of people.”

In his most recent role at Marsh, Beresheim led the practice responsible for providing strategic advice to clients related to directors and officers (D&O), errors and omissions (E&O), cyber/privacy, transactional risk, and related insurance products and solutions.

He will now oversee Lockton Financial Services whilst building strategic growth plans across the firm’s specialty practices.

“I am thrilled to join a firm with a world-class culture that has consistently outpaced the industry with tremendous growth. It is a testament to Lockton’s client-first approach,” said Beresheim.

“Lockton stands out in a consolidating marketplace, and their priorities are clear – clients, Associates and community.”

He will also work closely with Anthony Dagostino, who recently joined Lockton, to build out cyber strategies.

“Devin’s background and experience will be a huge benefit to our clients, Producers and Associates,” said Ron Lockton, President and Chief Executive Officer, Lockton Companies.

“The very best in the industry are choosing Lockton’s private ownership and entrepreneurial culture, and we’re energized to have Devin join our team.”
