Lockton makes senior hires in Latin American expansion

Lockton has announced the appointment of two senior Latin America executives and the promotion of another to form a new Regional LatAm Executive with effect from May 01, 2020.

The brokerage giant has hired Andrew Perry and Ed Fyfe and promoted Marcela Flores. Perry joins the company from Marsh, where he held senior positions including CEO of Carpenter Marsh Fac Latin America & Caribbean, Mercer Marsh Benefits international leader, and leader of client and business development for Marsh Regional Latin American & Caribbean.

Fyfe, meanwhile, joins the company from Willis Towers Watson, where he served for 34 years in positions including head of CRB retail and regional leader for large accounts and industries in Latin America and regional leader for property and energy in Miami. Fyfe opened the Willis Reinsurance offices in Brazil, Caracas, Venezuela and Peru.

Flores currently serves as president, producer and CEO of Lockton Mexico. She has more than 30 years of experience in optimizing risk management plans, employee benefits and actuarial consulting for national and international companies. She has also worked as a consultant on pooling, global quoting and captive insurers.

“Latin America has always interested Lockton as a major regional opportunity, but we haven’t found the right moment to invest,” said Neil Nimmo, CEO of Lockton International. “We are now ready to capitalize on our unique status as the only top-five, private global independent broker and significantly grow our presence in this vibrant region rich in culture, human capital and natural resource.”
