Lockton Expands Employee Benefits Staff

Lockton announced the hire of a new senior staffer within the firm's Chicago-based employee benefits operation.

Insurance brokerage firm and employee benefits solutions provider Lockton hired David Dennis to join its employee benefits operation in Chicago.

As unit manager and senior vice president, Dennis is responsible for providing guidance and developing comprehensive benefit programs to address the risks that employers face. He will focus on client retention and manage a team of Lockton professionals as they assist employers with marketing, funding issues, retirement plan design, and analyses of employee health and welfare benefit programs.

“The level of risk facing our clients is extremely diverse and our teams must be prepared to help identify and manage those risks,” says Tom Schaffler, president of Lockton’s Chicago employee benefits operation. “David has the industry experience necessary to understand these risks and to develop appropriate solutions for our clients and prospects.”

Dennis has more than 22 years of experience in health and welfare and employee benefits consulting. He most recently served as a practice client lead and account executive at Aon Hewitt in Chicago, in the firm’s health and benefits practice.
