Risk expert Josh Eckrich has joined Lockton’s Kansas City operation as a producer. Eckrich joins Lockton from Aon, where he led a team that handled complex risk management-issues.

“We are excited to bring Joshua on board to help clients with their strategic growth objectives and risk management,” said Joe Agnello, president of Lockton’s Kansas City office. “Joshua brings with him almost a decade of experience in the industry and adds tremendous leadership skills as a former officer in the US Army.”

Prior to joining the insurance industry, Eckrich was an infantry team leader in Sadr City, Iraq. His unit earned a Presidential Unit Citation for its conduct during the Battle of Najar, the largest fixed land battle after the invasion.
As an insurance professional, he specializes in complex risk related to real estate, food and agribusiness, and entertainment.

“It is important to build trust with my clients so that we can communicate effectively and collaborate to achieve strategic risk-management goals,” he said. “While the risks in the business world have their own perils, clients can rest assured that I will lead Lockton’s team to support and advise on business objectives.”
