Julian James, a highly regarded figure within the insurance industry, is leaving his post at Lockton.

In a statement released today, the Kansas City, Mo.-based insurance brokerage firm says James is resigning his position as chief executive officer of Lockton International as of Jan. 31.

No reason was given for his resignation.

The announcement, issued by Mike Hammond, chairman of Lockton’s international operations, says James will continue working “with the other members of the leadership team to effect an orderly transition of his responsibilities.” 

“On behalf of the Lockton family and all Lockton partners and associates, I would like to thank Julian for his leadership, support and friendship and we wish him well in the future,” says Hammond.

James joined Lockton International following the acquisition of Alexander Forbes International Risk Services by Lockton in 2006. The move effectively expanded the firm’s reach beyond its U.S. borders.

He served as CEO of Lockton International since April 2008. Lockton says he has been instrumental in helping to develop and build out its global capabilities.

Prior to joining Lockton, James was director of worldwide markets at Lloyd’s and a prominent voice for the U.S. market. He helped to further build the syndicate’s presence in Asia and China. He was with Lloyd’s for nine years before making the move to Lockton.
