Lockton expands Swedish business with appointment of Johan Frithioff to senior founding team

Lockton, the world’s largest independent insurance broker, welcomes Johan Frithioff as a senior hire in its Sweden office. This is part of the ongoing expansion of its compelling proposition to clients in the Nordic region. Johan is the final founding member of the senior team, with Lockton Sweden now poised to build its presence and footprint in the region.

Johan brings over two decades of leadership experience in the Swedish market to his new role. He joins after 22 years at Howden Insurance Brokers where, most recently, he held the role of Deputy Managing Director. Prior this this, he served as a broker at Aon and Minet.

This appointment represents the latest in a series of key leadership hires as part of Lockton's growth strategy in the Nordic region. In September, Lockton expanded its risk advisory and insurance brokerage services in Norway. The business is now well positioned to attract and invest in the market’s leading talent as it continues to scale its businesses. Lockton will be looking to continue to make a series of senior hires in the coming months, to support existing clients and a strong pipeline of future prospects.

Commenting, EJ Hentenaar, CEO of Lockton Europe, said: "The opportunity for Lockton in Sweden is profound and we are at a very exciting inflection point for our business in the region. Johan joining us means the firm foundations for sustained success are now in place, and we could not have asked for a better team to realise our ambitions. We are committed to building on these foundations and becoming an employer of choice in the region by investing in and attracting the very best talent, who share our entrepreneurial spirit, client-centric mindset and focus on exceptional service.

“Lockton Sweden is a part of a dynamic regional team serving corporate clients across the Nordics, collaborating closely with our teams in Denmark and Norway. We are looking forward to seizing the many opportunities the region presents, delivering best-in-market client solutions, and we will build a world class team to do so.”
