Lockton Expands Executive Benefits Practice

Daniel Barry will join the Mountain West office.
Lockton is expanding its retirement services practice with a new executive benefits expert. Daniel Barry will be joining the firm as senior vice president, working out of Denver and Charlotte, North Carolina, as part of the Mountain West team.

A 26-year veteran of the insurance and non-qualified deferred compensation (NQDC) industries, Barry joins the firm from Principal Financial Group.

“We have a significant executive benefits presence in the central and western parts of the country. Bringing Daniel on board helps us take our business nationwide,” says Chuck McDaniel, chief executive officer of Lockton’s Mountain West office. Barry is a nationally recognized expert on NQDC plans, McDaniel adds.

Pam Popp, president of Lockton’s retirement services business, who joined the firm last September, adds: “Nonqualified plans are complex for both the organizations that sponsor them and the individuals who participate in them. There are not a lot of people with Daniel’s level of expertise. Our clients will benefit tremendously from having him as part of their Lockton team.”
