Lockton establishes insurance, employee benefits office in San Antonio

An insurance brokerage and employee benefits consulting firm is opening its doors in San Antonio.

Lockton Inc. launched a new office in the Alamo City as part of its efforts to expand the company’s presence in the United States.

Lockton is the world’s largest independent, privately owned, insurance broker. The company is based in Kansas City, Mo., has 3,800 employees and now has 45 offices around the world.

The company hired Todd M. Trcka as senior vice president and producer of the office and Gracie Bechtol will serve as senior account executive.

Trcka previously worked for Aon Consulting in San Antonio. Bechtol previously worked for United Healthcare of Texas.

Lockton previously served the San Antonio market from Houston.

“This is the next step in establishing a long-term Lockton presence in San Antonio,” says President and CEO John Lumelleau. “This new office builds on the work of Tim Kelly and John Rathmell from Lockton’s Houston team who introduced our insurance and risk-management services in this fast-growing community.”

Lockton’s San Antonio office is located in the Plaza at Concord Park at 700 E. Sonterra Blvd.

The company is initially offering employee benefits consulting. It plans to expand into property and casualty brokerage services in the future.
