Lockton opens first Jordan office

Lockton, the privately-held, independent insurance broker, has opened a Jordan office in Amman, to be headed by Ahmad Abdo, General Manager. The expansion will enable the business to better serve corporate clients' insurance and risk management needs in Jordan, and regional and international clients with operations in Jordan.

Wael Khatib, Senior Partner & Chairman, Lockton (MENA) commented: "Lockton is a client-focused organisation, passionate about serving our clients. As we continue to grow our business, we need to stay close to them so that we can continue to improve our first-class local service and support."

He added, "Mr Ahmad Abdo is well known and respected in Jordan, with substantial experience in the market. I look forward to working with him and his team in further building the business and supporting our rapidly growing client base in Jordan and beyond."

Ahmad commented, "Lockton is enjoying rapid growth and development within the UAE and broader MENA region, as clients increasingly recognise the benefits of our keen focus on meeting their needs and our ability to create effective solutions. I am very pleased to be joining Lockton at this exciting time and to contributing to the continued success and evolution of the business."

In the coming 12 months, Lockton is planning further expansion in countries across the MENA region, the company said.
