Perry arrives to lead Lockton’s LatAm business
It is our great pleasure to welcome Andrew Perry to Lockton as CEO of Lockton Latin America and Caribbean Insurance services. Andrew, formerly CEO Carpenter Marsh Fac Latin America & Caribbean, joins us at a tremendously exciting time, to lead our Latin American strategy.
Under Andrew’s leadership we will build on the success of our existing operations, with dedicated regional management enabling us to take advantage of the ever growing opportunities in this exciting region.
“Latin America has always interested us as a major regional opportunity. With the investment in our new regional leadership team we are now ready to capitalise on our unique status as the only privately held independent global broker and significantly grow our presence in this vibrant region rich in culture, human capital and natural resource,” said Neil Nimmo, CEO of Lockton International.
Andrew will be joined on the 18th May by Edward Fyfe. Edward spent 34 years at Willis, laterally as the Head of CRB Retail & Regional Leader, Large Accounts & Industries – Latin America. “Edward has a fantastic reputation throughout the region and his client experience is second to none. Together with Andrew he will ensure that, as ever, our service proposition in the region is market-leading,” said Nimmo.
Andrew and Ed will work together with Marcela Flores who has been promoted to regional head of Benefits in Latin America, whilst maintaining her key client relationships across the region.
Nimmo added: “With the aid of our world-class experienced management team, Lockton can now execute on its Latin America strategy, expanding our reach and adding resource to the region. Please join me in wishing them the best of luck.”
