Lockton, a privately held, independent insurance broker, has hired Michael Garner to its employee benefit team as a vice president and producer in the Hartford, Conn., operation.
Garner has more than 10 years of experience as an employee health and benefits producer and consultant, working with companies to help them attract and retain employees through market-leading benefit programs.
In this role, he will be responsible for generating new client relationships and will provide oversight and leadership to ensure client satisfaction and overall retention. While his primary focus will be employee benefits, he will aim to broaden his client relationships by facilitating introductions to Lockton’s property and casualty and financial service practices.
Prior to joining Lockton, Garner was a principal with Ovation Benefits (now OneDigital Health and Benefits). He has also been a sales representative at Rogers Benefit Group and at Liberty Mutual Insurance.
