Global insurance and reinsurance broker Lockton has added Andrew Perry and Ed Fyfe as senior Latin America executives, while also promoting Marcela Flores to form a new Lockton regional LatAm executive with effect from 1 May 2020.
Perry joins from Marsh, having held various senior appointments including Chief Executive Officer of Carpenter Marsh Fac Latin America & Caribbean, Mercer Marsh Benefits International Leader, and Marsh Regional Latin American & Caribbean Leader for Client & Business Development.
Fyfe joins from Willis Towers Watson, having served for 34 years as Head of CRB Retail & Regional Leader, Large Accounts & Industries in Latin America, and also Regional Leader, Property and Energy in Miami.
Flores holds over 30 years’ experience and currently serves as President, Producer and CEO of Lockton Mexico.
He has worked with International and multi-national companies as a consultant on pooling, global quoting and captive insurers.
Lockton says it will initially be focusing on developing its employee benefits, property & casualty and corporate business propositions in the LatAm region.
“Latin America has always interested Lockton as a major regional opportunity, but we hadn’t found the right moment to invest,” commented Neil Nimmo, Lockton International CEO.
“We are now ready to capitalise on our unique status as the only top five, private global independent broker and significantly grow our presence in this vibrant region rich in culture, human capital and natural resource.
“We recognise and respect our key partners in Latin America, with whom we will work hand in glove to grow together. At the same time, we will continue to look to expand our geographic footprint as talent and clients dictate.
“With the aid of our world-class experienced management team, Lockton can now execute on its Latin America strategy, expanding our reach and adding resource to the region.”
