Dan Urias joins Lockton to expand its business in Southern California | Lockton Companies

December 21, 2020, Irvine, CA — Dan Urias recently joined Lockton Pacific as Vice President, Producer to grow and accelerate its commercial insurance presence in Orange County and the Inland Empire. He will be delivering innovative risk management solutions to businesses at a time when companies face ongoing uncertainties related to COVID-19 and its economic fallout, including increased litigation aimed at company directors and officers as well as cyber exposures brought on by remote workforces.

“Navigating these uncertain times calls for expert advice, innovation, flexibility and client-first approaches to managing risk,” says Urias. “As part of the world’s largest privately held brokerage that puts clients above all else, my team and I have the independence, flexibility, speed and efficiency to do what’s right for our clients. That means providing unfiltered advice and being proactive with forward-thinking strategies and resources they need to emerge from the pandemic stronger and better.”

Dan’s success in delivering measurable results for mid-market businesses is built on more than a decade of experience and an expertise in construction and manufacturing. He most recently served as a producer at Marsh & McLennan Agency–West, where he led its construction practice group in Orange County and Los Angeles and was responsible for generating impressive year-over-year growth as well as high client retention. Urias was profiled this month in Insurance Business America’s Hot 100 list of leaders and innovators for his contributions to the industry.
