Lockton Grows Retirement Practice in the Northeast

(Hartford, CT) – 13 September 2017 – Continuing a year of major expansion, Lockton announced the addition of Bert Kingsley to its Northeast Practice. Kingsley is Lockton’s fourth new retirement advisor in less than a year.

A 20-year veteran of the retirement industry, Kingsley spent his last 12 years as Principal and Growth Leader for Mercer’s Eastern US Defined Contribution Marketplace. Kingsley holds FINRA, Life Accident, and Health Insurance licenses and has completed numerous American Society of Pension Actuaries exams. He has qualified and nonqualified plan expertise on topics including compliance, private equity, mergers and acquisitions, financial wellness, and investment advice.

“Asking Bert to join the Northeast Practice reflects a deepening commitment to our clients,” said Washington, DC-based Robert Connolly, CEO of Lockton’s Northeast Practice. “The employers we serve want holistic advice about risk management, including their benefits liabilities. Bert is the third retirement consultant we’ve brought into the northeast in just over two years. His addition speaks to the importance of retirement to our clients, and his expertise is indicative of the caliber of consulting our customers have come to expect.”

“Last year, Lockton’s Retirement Practice grew at a pace that outstripped most advisory firms in the industry,” said Pam Popp, President of Lockton’s National Retirement Practice. “And this year we’re on track to grow even more. Bringing on advisors with skills like Bert’s is not only essential to our continued, aggressive growth strategy, but critical to delivering the kind of sophisticated, comprehensive consulting our clients need and deserve.”

Lockton’s retirement practice advises more than 1,200 plans, representing $50 billion in assets. Follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter @Lockton_Retire.
