Insurance and reinsurance broker Lockton has promoted Sean Lyons to President of its Florida operations, based out of the firm’s Miramar office.
In his new role, Lyons will be responsible for overseeing the development and expansion in Florida to best serve customers on a national and global basis.
He initially joined Lockton in 2006 as an Executive Vice President (EVP) and Co-founder of the Miramar office, the broker’s first location in the state of Florida. In addition to his new roles as President, Lyons will continue his client and business development responsibilities.
Lockton says that Lyons, alongside Doug Hutcherson, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Lockton’s Southeast Series and Manoj Sharma, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the firm’s Southeast Series, will be instrumental in the recruitment of top talent to join a group of risk management and employee benefits experts across the state.
Hutcherson commented: “Sean’s new role will positively impact our standing in the marketplace. His combination of extraordinary production, leadership, and vision uniquely qualify him to guide the strategic direction of our Florida business.”
