Lockton Companies, the world’s largest independent insurance brokerage firm, hired Alex Hood to be a Client Advocate of People Solutions for Lockton’s Founders Series region, based in Kansas City with offices in Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Nebraska.
“If you want palpable, infectious energy in a room, you get Alex,” said Tim Meacham, Lockton Founders Series Chief Operating Officer over People Solutions. “Alex brings a fervor to his work that is unique. He’s thoughtful and highly passionate about what he does and who he’s working with and is a strategic partner.”
After nearly 10 years with Willis Towers Watson, WTW, Hood is positioned exceptionally well to bring his high energy and bright thinking to Lockton, along with his knack to expert analysis and out-of-the-box solutions to his clients’ business. Hood has made a name for himself as someone to challenge the status quo and stop at nothing for his clients and colleagues. He is passionate about helping businesses and clients deliver the most effective solutions for employers and their families.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join Lockton Founders Series People Solutions practice,” said Hood. “Lockton’s philosophy of providing clients strategic advisory, not tactical brokerage, is a deep passion point of mine and I’m excited to continue to hone-in on and sharpen here. My perspective is always first and foremost being protective of clients and relationships I build. I consider clients true partners and grow into trusted friendships. I see this being lived out by Lockton leadership and am elated to grow and plant roots here.”
Lockton believes companies can reach their full potential when their people reach theirs. That’s why employers need solutions that help balance attracting and retaining talent, managing costs, and promoting employee well-being. Lockton’s People Solutions practice, with more than 300 Associates in the Founders Series, works with clients to make their organizations and their people’s lives better by delivering solutions that improve experiences and engagement, provide effective total rewards and benefits, and help control overall costs.
