Lockton Norway AS: Where exceptional talent is driving rapid growth

Lockton Norway AS has revealed its succession plan for its senior leadership team. The move follows the company’s rapid growth in the region.

Anders Johannessen will become CEO of Lockton’s Norway business from May 1. His predecessor Cato Aamodt will remain a key component of the Norwegian leadership team. Meanwhile, Lorraine Boyle is set to become chair of Lockton Norway, taking over from Alistair Rivers – CEO of the company’s Global Marine business.

Johannessen joined the company in 2018. He’ll lead its next phase of growth, while continuing to be a driving force behind its Global Marine efforts.

He said: “Under the leadership of Cato Aamodt, we’ve developed capabilities that span Professional and Financial Risks, Transaction Solutions and Private Equity. The acquisition of Edge has given us Marine capabilities – and we’ve also invested in Energy, Property & Casualty and People Solutions. Cato made all this possible – and he remains a key member of our diverse, inclusive leadership team.”

EJ Hentenaar, CEO of Lockton Europe said: “Our culture and values are built on talent – and as a result, Lockton is a magnet for doers with a single-minded focus on delivering results for clients. We’re proud of the exceptional growth our Norwegian business has driven. It clearly demonstrates the impact of investing in exceptionally talented people.

I would like to thank Cato for his leadership and helping us build our Norway business to what it is today. I know that, under Anders’ leadership, we will continue to attract the very best people, so that we can deliver the very best service in the region.”
