Lockton Insurance Brokers, the Pacific region of global insurance broker Lockton Companies, has announced the appointment of Alex Michon as president of its Sacramento operations.
Michon has nearly 30 years of industry experience. He joined Lockton in 2016 as executive vice president and built the Sacramento office from the ground up. He currently leads a team of 34 P&C insurance and employee benefits experts, Lockton said.
“Alex’s exceptional leadership will continue to be a driving force behind our success and strong organic growth in the region, which has the potential to support a large-scale operation,” said Timothy Noonan, Lockton’s Pacific chairman. “He has built a solid team of top talent in Sacramento and champions our culture as a fiercely independent, client- and service-focused organization.”
“There’s been a lot of turbulence in the brokerage industry today, characterized by failed mergers and consolidations,” Michon said. “This has given us access to an unprecedented pool of top talent looking for the stability of an independent broker committed to private ownership. Nothing drives growth like talent, and our team will continue to be the secret sauce of our growth strategy as well as our value to clients.”
Michon specializes in managed care and multinational organizations that require complex regulatory compliance. He co-leads Lockton’s global healthcare practice group and serves on Lockton Pacific Series’ executive committee, which provides strategic direction and financial oversight for nine offices in California and Oregon.
“Alex has been a leader from the day he joined Lockton,” said Bob Irvin, president of Lockton’s San Francisco office. “He has proven to be a strategic advocate for his clients and a partner to his colleagues. Alex has grown the Lockton brand throughout the region, and we are incredibly fortunate to have him as president of Sacramento as well as a member of the executive committee of Lockton’s Pacific Series.”
