Sherri Harrison to Lead Lockton Benefits Practice in Southern California

SAN DIEGO, CA (June 1, 2021)—Lockton Insurance Brokers, LLC, the Pacific region of global insurance broker Lockton Companies, recently promoted Sherri Harrison, Senior Vice President to Market Leader, responsible for clients, people, operations and growth of its benefits practice in San Diego and Orange County.

Harrison is a benefits veteran with 27+ years of consulting, brokerage and carrier experience. She served as Senior Consultant/San Diego Office Leader for Mercer before joining Lockton two years ago, where she has been focused on strategies to grow and scale the company’s new benefits practice in Irvine, California while leading a benefits team in San Diego.

“In her brief two years, Sherri has made a significant impact in both markets with clients, producers and associates alike,” says Won Andersen, Employee Benefits Practice Leader for Lockton Pacific Series. “Her servant leadership approach and growth mindset has unified our benefits operations in San Diego and Orange County with more alignment, collaboration and momentum as we emerge from the pandemic. She drives everyone to think differently and do better to serve as a strategic partner for clients as they face these challenging times.”

As Market Leader, Harrison will partner closely with Francesca Redshaw, Senior Vice President, Director of San Diego Benefits and Sean Spencer, Director of Innovation, in expanding Lockton’s employee benefits presence in the San Diego and Orange County business communities through talent recruiting, development and support as well as thought leadership, new employee benefits services and solutions.

“I look forward to my new role at Lockton, where our entrepreneurial and high performance culture can make a real difference for employers looking to redefine their health care benefit strategies to manage their bottom line more effectively,” explains Harrison. “We are nimble, innovative and decisive, which allows us to adapt to each unique market, better leverage our resources and teams, and respond more quickly and effectively to clients needs.”

“Benefits is the fastest growing segment of our business in San Diego,” explains Sallie Giblin, president of Lockton San Diego and member of the Lockton National Benefits Executive Committee. “Sherri’s vast expertise and personal commitment to client service will not only strengthen our foothold in Irvine, but will bolster the continued double digit growth we’ve enjoyed in San Diego."

Lockton’s rapidly growing Pacific region encompasses nine offices throughout the Western United States including Portland, Sonoma, San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento, Encino, Los Angeles, Irvine and San Diego.
