Lockton appoints Global Benefits leader

LONDON, November 11, 2016

Mike Tyler has been appointed to Head of Lockton International Benefits, as the world’s largest privately owned insurance broker continues to see increased client demand for benefits services.

Tyler will also become Chair of the Global Benefits Leadership Group, which will oversee expansion of the benefits capabilities around the globe.

The benefits practice represents 30% of Lockton’s global revenues and has continued to enjoy consistent double digit growth over the last decade. Anticipating an ever increasing requirement from clients for support in multiple countries, Lockton is investing additional resources in the benefits business, with an initial focus on the UK and Asia.

Tyler joined Lockton in October 2012 and built the market-leading UK business from scratch, as well as successfully reorganising the benefits business in Asia.

Neil Nimmo, CEO of Lockton Companies LLP in London, said: “We have committed to further investment in the benefits businesses internationally and we are delighted that Mike will be providing strategic direction and oversight to these investments and global leadership to all of our benefits business.”

Mike Tyler said: “We have made terrific progress in the four years I’ve been with Lockton, and this next phase promises to be even more exciting as we expand the Lockton capability internationally and build on our relationships with Lockton Global Partners.”
