10th November 2022 - Author: Pete Carvill

Lockton Re has hired Ben Ryan as a senior broker within its non-marine retrocession and property specialty team in London.

The firm said in a statement that Ryan began his career as part of the graduate programme at Aon’s reinsurance solutions. He then joined the non-marine retrocession team in 2015 and spent time in New York, focussing on retrocession clients in the US and Bermuda before moving back to London in 2022.

Matt Foreman, head of non-marine retrocession and property specialty at Lockton Re, said: “Ben is a great addition to our expanding global presence in the retrocession marketplace. His excellent experience broking and operating in the London, USA, and Bermuda marketplaces will enhance our holistic offering and geographical reach to clients.”

He added: “Ben’s analytical approach and broad network will be a huge asset as we continue to grow our division and seek to bring innovative structures and solutions to clients. We are all excited to be working with Ben as we head into a very busy and complex renewal season at 1 January.”

Ryan is not the only new employee heading into Lockton Re’s London office. A few weeks ago, the firm said it had hired Oliver Brew as cyber practice leader, working out of the same premises.

In addition to Foreman, Robert Bisset, chairman of global retrocession and property specialist for Bermuda and market capital at the firm, also welcomed Ryan onboard.

Foreman said: “Ben is a fantastic addition to not only the Retrocession and Property Specialty team but our entire global Lockton Re team. His decision to join exemplifies our ability to continue to attract top talent in our industry. We are building a leading reinsurance broker focussed on client-service, creativity, analytics, and execution. Ben’s boundless energy, contagious enthusiasm, global perspective, and strong intellect complement our proposition as we grow our client base.”
