Lockton announces two senior promotions in Crisis Management team

Lockton, an independent insurance broker, has recently announced two senior promotions within its Crisis Management team: Helen Sandford as Head of Special Crime and Freddie Schlesinger as Head of Product Recall and Reputational Risk.

In their new capacities, both Sandford and Schlesinger will report to Matt Humphries, Head of Crisis Management at Lockton.

They will be responsible for driving the continued growth of the Crisis Management team, which encompasses War, Terrorism & Political Violence, Special Crime, and Product Recall & Reputational Risk all under one umbrella.

Humphries emphasises, “We are growing rapidly and differentiating ourselves from our peers through getting niche expertise to our clients & prospects. As we grow, I am delighted that we have the strength in depth to continually promote from within. Freddie and Helen are the latest example of our approach to talent development.”

“Recent global dynamics have seen a significant uptick in frequency of crisis events and highlighted the importance of crisis management plans. Their skillset and insights will be instrumental in maintaining the momentum the team has built and delivering bespoke insurance solutions, formulated to manage the precise risks our clients face. Lockton’s unique proposition is deliberately aligned to achieve economies of scale and to make Crisis Management a standalone conversation,” Humphries adds.

Sandford joined Lockton over a year ago as Assistant Vice President, where she served as Special Crime Lead for the Crisis Management team, bringing a wealth of knowledge and expertise in tailoring placements for Special Crime risk to her new role.

Before joining Lockton, Sandford spent four years at Special Contingency Risks, where she held the position of Lead Associate.

Schlesinger has been with Lockton for over five years, having joined in 2019 as Vice President.

Prior to his tenure at Lockton, he gained extensive experience in product recall underwriting at CFC, where he worked in Crisis Management.
