James Spears returns to Lockton as a Producer in the St. Louis Series

(St. Louis, MO) – 17 July 2017 – Lockton is pleased to welcome back James Spears as a new Producer in Lockton’s St. Louis Series. Spears returns to Lockton, the world’s largest privately held independent insurance broker, from Aon where he worked with clients in the construction, real estate, manufacturing, higher education, transportation and logistics and professional services industries.

“James has a well-deserved reputation as a thought leader around risk management issues related to the transportation and logistics industry,” said Kevin McDaniel, president of Lockton’s St. Louis operations.

“It is exciting to have James join the Lockton team again. We look forward to James growing the transportation and logistics, construction, real estate, manufacturing, professional services, and higher education markets in the Midwest for the St. Louis operations,” said Peter Caine, chief operating officer of Lockton’s Nashville operations.

Spears started in Lockton’s St. Louis office in 2008 as an Account Executive. After almost six years with Lockton, Spears joined Holmes Murphy and Associates, and later Aon, to gain experience as a Producer.

During his time with Aon, Spears worked to expand the property and casualty and health benefits book of business. He gained experience in enterprise risk management and built relationships with clients by understanding their business goals and challenges.

Spears holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance from Missouri State University with a specialization in financial management services, insurance and risk management.
