Associates, clients, and communities. Since day one, these have been at the center of what Lockton does. As the world’s largest privately owned, independent insurance broker and consultant, Lockton specializes in risk management, employee benefits, and retirement services.
Lockton was founded in 1966 in Kansas City with one associate, Jack Lockton. He worked hard to convince prospective clients to move their business from larger brokers to Lockton. As a small start-up, that wasn’t easy, so when Lockton got a client, they did what it took to keep them. That focus on service is alive and well at Lockton today.
Lockton opened its Omaha office in 2011 under the leadership of Jack Struyk. Since then, Lockton Omaha has grown from seven associates to more than 40 associates. Lockton Omaha has several producers and dozens of experts ready to help clients protect their most valuable assets—their people, property, and reputations. Here’s an intro to some producers in the Lockton Omaha office:
Jack Struyk, an Omaha native, leads Lockton’s Nebraska business as president/partner of the Omaha office. Struyk has more than 35 years of experience in risk management, underwriting, and insurance brokerage. He has brokered insurance programs for large employers throughout the country for the last 25 years, in construction, health care, manufacturing, real estate, and retail.
For more than 20 years, Bob Harry has been an active leader in the insurance industry. He has extensive knowledge in the placement, servicing, and sales aspects in the manufacturing and real estate industries. Harry holds a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Alex Petrovich is a business-to-business client advocate and adviser with a focus on developing customized risk management and employee benefits solutions for middle market, and large privately and publicly traded organizations. With more than a decade of experience his goal is to align the strategic goals of clients to their risk management objectives.
With more than two decades of experience in investment management, retirement plan design, and fiduciary governance practices, Jason Smith helps clients with their bottom line. He has been named among the 300 most influential defined contribution advisers for four years running. Smith holds designations as both a qualified plan financial consultant and a certified financial planner (CFP).
Lockton’s goal is to be the best place to work and do business, and their private ownership ensures that their strategic decisions are focused on their three constituents—associates, clients, and communities—versus delivering quarterly results for shareholder. As Lockton chairman David Lockton says, “Our horizon is a quarter of a century, not a quarter of a year.”
