Discussing his new role, Breslin said, “What an exciting time to be joining the great growth story that is Lockton Re. I see this as an amazing opportunity to work with a variety of clients from globals, regionals and Lloyd’s Syndicates, taking my career to the next level and learning from a great group of colleagues.”
Tim Gardner, Global Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Lockton Re, added, “A key part of our growth and success has been the collaborative focus of our culture and our global build out.
