He takes up his role with immediate effect and will be responsible for driving forward the North American Property team in London, focusing on delivering the best possible risk solutions for clients. He will work in conjunction with Lockton’s US and Canadian retail partners, as well as in close collaboration with the Lockton US Property Practice, led by Mike Andler in New York. He will also become a member of the P&C Specialties Executive Committee.

Rowley brings over 20 years of experience to the role, joining after five years at WTW, where he started as a development leader, before becoming head of North American Property at the broker. Prior to that, he spent just over 16 years at Brit Insurance in a number of underwriting roles, including short-tail portfolio director, divisional director for property PRV and class underwriter for open market property. Rowley began his career at Denham Syndicate Management in 1999 as an assistant underwriter.

Following Rowley’s appointment, Adam Watson will be promoted from the existing Head of North American Property into the newly created role of Production Leader for P&C Specialties. This role will be to lead and execute the P&C Specialties global production strategy, as well as drive forward key growth initiatives and new product development.

Both Rowley and Watson will report to Simon Scholfield, head of P&C Specialties.

The appointment comes after the Lockton’s P&C division announced the arrival of Clarissa Franks from Marsh as its head of UK P&C Retail in November.
