Lockton builds International Benefits capacity

16 January 2017 - Lockton, the world’s largest privately owned insurance broker,  is building out its international employee benefits hub in anticipation of further growth, with the hire of Tom Laidler who joins as Senior Consultant in the London-based team. The new addition to the team follows the recent appointment of Mike Tyler to lead the practice, and is a further indication of Lockton’s intention to build International Benefits consulting capability around the globe to complement the established teams in the US. The International Benefits practice has enjoyed consistent growth since the new UK team was established in 2013.

Tyler said: “Tom brings extensive International Benefits experience having undertaken roles at Mercer, Swiss Life and more recently Allianz, with particular expertise in multinational pooling, captives and expatriate solutions.

“His market knowledge from both the consulting and insurer side will be hugely valuable as we expand our capabilities across the globe.”
