Human resources consultant Sean Connors joins Lockton’s Midwest team

Sean ConnorsCHICAGO, Dec. 13, 2018 – Sean Connors has spent two decades developing insurance and employee benefits solutions to help businesses attract and retain top talent. The employee benefits consultant, who recently joined Lockton’s Chicago office, previously owned an insurance agency. This gives him a unique understanding of the insurance industry as he managed the entire process from solution design to market negotiations to placing policies for clients.

“I partner with clients to first understand their business and then develop employee benefits solutions that help them meet their human capital goals while balancing costs,” Connors said. “Every business faces unique challenges related to their benefits programs. My background consulting with clients on human resource issues allows me to tailor programs that address these challenges and increase employee engagement.”

Prior to joining Lockton, Connors spent time at USI Insurance Services and Group Services. In these roles, he partnered with his clients to design employee benefits strategies that helped them achieve their business objectives.

“Sean brings more than 20 years of insurance experience which includes owning his own agency,” said Tom Schaffler, chief executive officer of Lockton’s Midwest operation, which includes Chicago. “Our clients will benefit from Sean’s in-depth knowledge of the industry and his benefits consulting background. He will partner with businesses to design employee benefits programs that address their unique needs.”

Connors holds a bachelor’s degree from Stockton University. He has served as a volunteer and committee leader with Family Resource, an organization that provides resources for children, families and individuals in crisis in eastern Iowa and western Illinois.
