Global insurance brokerage Lockton has appointed Steven Goldenberg to its leadership line-up as executive vice president of operations.

Joining Lockton’s global headquarters in Kansas City, Goldenberg will focus on the independent insurance broker’s strategic initiatives, innovative solutions, and talent recruitment in line with growth aspirations.

The key addition made the switch from Aon where he spent around 15 years. Goldenberg most recently served as global chief operating officer for Aon’s commercial risk solutions unit. His credentials also include time spent at McKinsey & Company.

Commenting on his appointment, Goldenberg said in a release: “Lockton’s culture, client focus, and leadership team give the organisation a distinct advantage around the globe. I am excited to join Lockton; its growth story is phenomenal. I look forward to making a significant impact on the future trajectory.”

Goldenberg shared the news on LinkedIn as well, announcing to his professional network that he has started a new position as a Lockton EVP. The post has so far generated 56 comments from peers congratulating Goldenberg on the career move and from new colleagues welcoming him to Lockton.

Meanwhile, chief executive Peter Clune, whose camp believes Goldenberg’s industry know-how and leadership will be instrumental in amplifying the company’s growth momentum, had this to say: “Steve’s broad experience and expertise in driving strategy and developing talent will be a tremendous asset to Lockton as we continue our explosive worldwide growth.”

Known as the biggest independent and privately held insurance brokerage in the world, Lockton is manned by around 11,000 people who do business in more than 140 countries. Last June, Lockton reported revenue growth of 17% on a constant currency basis for its fiscal year ended April 30, 2023.
