Lockton Companies Australia continues to invest in industry and product segments, where we are able to attract leaders who demonstrate our commitment to clients and drive our strategy of growth through specialisms and capabilities, as evidenced by our recently formed Power & Energy Practice.
“Power & Energy is one of the most dynamic sectors in the Australian marketplace and we’ve recognised the need for legitimate expertise in this space.” said CEO, Paul Marsden. “This is why we’ve substantially invested in the best expertise and talent in the country - and we’ll continue to invest over the next few years as we continue to execute on our strategy”.
Lockton’s Power & Energy Practice will be led by Ranga Jayaratne. Ranga is one of the most highly regarded insurance and risk advisors in the sector, joining from one of the largest international brokers as their National Utilities Practice Leader – developing one of the most successful Energy teams in the industry. He has worked on some of the most iconic power, energy and infrastructure clients nationally, and is well known as being a fierce client advocate and innovator.
Ranga commented “It’s very humbling and exciting to lead an incredibly talented national specialist team. The industry is undergoing a remarkable transformation, like nothing we’ll see again in our lifetime. The opportunities are endless for all the market participants and stakeholders, from an insurance and risk solutions perspective, we are approaching things from a different angle. Being the largest privately owned broker in the world, we are in a fortunate position to invest in certain disciplines and develop genuinely unique solutions that add tangible value to our clients. Rather than play to the goal posts, we’ll be looking to move the goal posts”.
