Lockton has announced the appointment of Tom Rowley as the new head of North American property for its Europe division, based in London.
Effective immediately, Rowley will collaborate with Lockton’s retail partners in the US and Canada and work closely with the Lockton US property practice led by Mike Andler in New York. Rowley will also become a member of the P&C specialties executive committee.
With over 20 years of experience, Rowley joins Lockton after a five-year tenure at WTW, initially as a development leader and later as head of North American property. Prior to that, he spent over 16 years at Brit Insurance, holding various underwriting roles. His career commenced at Denham Syndicate Management in 1999 as an assistant underwriter.
Given Rowley’s appointment, Adam Watson will be promoted from his existing role as head of North American property to the newly created position of production leader for P&C specialties. In this capacity, Watson will lead and implement the global production strategy for P&C specialties, driving key growth initiatives and new product development.
Both Rowley and Watson will report to Simon Scholfield, head of P&C specialties.
“I am really excited about Tom joining the team and bringing his wealth of experience, technical skills, and expertise to Lockton. Our continued investment in exceptional talent enhances our ability to deliver the best possible risk solutions to our clients. Tom’s leadership experience, and unrelenting focus on client service, is the perfect fit for Lockton,” Lockton Europe CEO EJ Hentenaar said.
Elsewhere for the independent broker, its reinsurance arm, Lockton Re, recently announced the debut of its global mortgage and structured credit segment.
