Lockton Re adds non-executive director to board


By Kenneth Araullo

Lockton Re has announced that Rob Littlemore (pictured right) will join the Lockton Re International LLP Board as an independent non-executive director effective September 1, 2024, pending FCA approval.

Littlemore's most recent role was chief executive of AXA XL Global Markets Reinsurance and a board director of Catlin Underwriting Agencies at Lloyd’s. He served as head of Catlin’s London Reinsurance Group from 2008 and was appointed underwriting director of reinsurance following XL's acquisition of Catlin in May 2015.

Littlemore began his career at Greig Fester Reinsurance Brokers in 1986 before transitioning to underwriting, where he held senior positions at Chaucer, Faraday, and Wellington Syndicates. He has also served on the Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA) board and held board positions at Catlin Re Switzerland, Catlin Underwriting Agency, and AXA XL.

Keith Harrison, CEO of Lockton Re International, noted that Rob Littlemore brings substantial experience and expertise to the Board.

“He understands both the broking and underwriting aspects of the market and is a well-known and respected industry figure. Rob has extensive experience of driving and leading businesses combined with relevant Executive Board positions. As the newly expanded Lockton Re reaches its 5-year anniversary Rob is an excellent addition to our governance framework,” Harrison said.

Ross Howard, chairman of the Lockton Re International LLP Board, also expressed enthusiasm for Littlemore’s appointment.

“We are delighted Rob will be joining the Board and know he will bring a different perspective, challenge and counsel to the Board of Lockton Re LLP, who look forward to working with him,” Howard said.

Elsewhere, the reinsurance broker has also announced the upcoming addition of Andy Wakefield as a senior broker in its marine & energy division. Wakefield, who will be based in London, is set to join later this year.
