Justin Lee Honored for Life of Service

Justin LeeIt is with great sadness that we announce the death of Justin Lee (Jeong Ig Lee), CEO and Managing Director of Lockton in Seoul, Korea. He died last week after a battle with pancreatic cancer with funeral services earlier this week.

Justin had led Lockton’s Korean operation as CEO since 2011 and had been with the predecessor business, IMI Korea, since 2005. He had also worked with HSBC Insurance Brokers (Korea) as a founding member of the team, and started his insurance career with Dong-yang Fire & Marine Insurance (now known as Meritz Fire & Marine).

Justin helped fuel Lockton’s dramatic growth in Korea by working with banks, asset management firms, and other lenders as well as many construction companies to support their operations. He recruited talented people into Lockton Korea and provided a guiding hand through its development.

Said Neil Nimmo, CEO of Lockton’s international operations, “Justin provided strong leadership, service, and energy for our business in Korea. He was a man dedicated to his team, his clients, and his family. We will miss him, and we extend our sympathies to his many friends and family members.”
