He will be responsible for deal origination with a particular focus on supporting M&A transactions throughout the UK and Ireland.

He is an Irish sporting icon who has experienced incredible success both on and off the pitch, due in no small part to his phenomenal work ethic. His sporting achievements combined with his clear business acumen, and his wide network of contacts, will add a fresh perspective to Lockton’s operations, and will undoubtedly strengthen our offer for new and existing clients. I thoroughly look forward to working with him as we support businesses throughout the UK and Ireland in their M&A endeavours.”
