LOCKTON, the world’s largest privately held independent insurance broker, has appointed David Spence as an Account Executive at its Aberdeen office as it looks to grow its customer base across the North East of Scotland.
Spence brings over 16 years of experience in the corporate insurance broking environment to the role and is an Associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute. He spent 12 years at Carmichael & Partners prior to their acquisition by PIB Insurance Brokers in 2016. Following this, he was responsible for the servicing of existing clients and business development.
Spence comments, “Having worked for the majority of my working life in privately owned businesses, I was drawn to Lockton and the fact that they are uncommonly independent. This appealed to me a great deal and I believe it will enable me to flourish in the next stage of my career. Lockton’s pan-European and global operations provide an excellent way for me to grow and support my existing network.”
Based in Aberdeen, Spence will focus on growing the business across a wide range of sectors including Oil and Gas/Energy, Transportation, Construction and Real Estate, Engineering and Food and Drink.
Steven Cox, Head of Office at Lockton Aberdeen said: “It is an exciting time for David to join Lockton as we continue to grow our footprint in the North East of Scotland.
“Due to the unprecedented and phenomenal growth of our business to date, attracting top-quality talent is key to our investment strategy. David naturally forms part of this and we will be announcing further plans in the new year.”
