Lockton appoints new leaders to support growth strategy

Independent insurance brokerage Lockton has appointed two key leaders to support the company's planned growth trajectory.

Hiram Marrero, currently executive vice president and regional executive officer with Lockton, will assume the role of president, global growth officer, reporting to Ron Lockton, chairman of the board.

Said Taiym, Lockton's current chief digital officer, will assume the role of US chief operating officer, reporting to global CEO Peter Clune.

The appointments follow Peter Clune becoming global CEO as Ron Lockton assumed the role of chairman in November 2019.

"Growth has always been a hallmark of Lockton. Hiram's leadership and passion for growth, coupled with our freedom as a private company ensures that the organization will be well-positioned to deploy our growth strategies on an international scale," said Lockton. "I'm excited to work alongside Hiram to develop and execute on our growth strategies globally."

Clune commented: "Said has been a transformational and visionary leader during his time with the company, and in this new role, he will continue to help realize the organization's vision of growth and transformation. It will be crucial to have someone of Said's experience and caliber in this critical role."
