By Kenneth Araullo

Lockton Re Capital Markets (LRCM) has announced the appointment of Brendan Roche as its new head of distribution.

Roche’s career includes tenures as an SVP at GC Securities and nearly 14 years at Marsh, where he held the position of global leader of ILS and SPV Centre of Excellence. His experience also spans various roles within hedge funds, investor, and financial sectors.

Roche, who has over 25 years of experience in the sector, will be reporting to Zach Breslin, the head of LRCM, and will be stationed in Europe.

Breslin shared his enthusiasm about the new addition to the team welcoming Roche as the firm seeks to enhance client services and offer solutions complementary to Lockton Re’s current portfolio.

“His depth of experience and excellent reputation are a great fit for our growth and expansion, as we are strategically focused on investing in the right people to support our clients in accessing the most efficient forms of capital to fund their businesses,” Breslin said.

Robert Bisset, chairman Global Retrocession & Property Specialty, Bermuda & Market Capital, Lockton Re, highlighted Roche’s alignment with the company’s dynamic culture and client-focused approach.

“Brendan is a great fit for the dynamic culture of Lockton Re and our continued focus on clients and colleagues. It’s been an exciting journey since we launched LRCM; we have added colleagues, built infrastructure, and are now providing solutions across a broad spectrum of capital providers and product categories. I look forward to working with Brendan, as do the wider team,” Bisset said.

Roche’s appointment follows another recent hire for Lockton Re, with the broker unveiling an expansion to its cyber practice by naming Brian Lewis as senior broking leader for cyber in North America.
