“I am delighted to appoint Philip as COO of Lockton Asia. With his market experience and expertise, he will take our APAC business to the next level,” said Warren Merritt, CEO of Lockton Asia.
“The APAC region’s insurance sectors are made up of both mature markets and developing markets which are at various stages in their respective development,” Merritt continued.
“As such, we see a huge opportunity to enter new geographies in the region while also enhancing Lockton Asia’s existing businesses though the acquisition of personnel and expansion into new specialty business areas in those markets.”
