• Bob Lock to strengthen JLT Specialty’s offering to businesses within the renewable energy sector

JLT Specialty (JLT), the specialist insurance broker and risk consultant, has appointed Bob Lock as Partner in its Renewable Energy team. 

Bob has extensive experience of the power industry, leading insurance work streams on complex power projects across numerous overseas territories, as well as spending several years working for oil companies and on downstream petrochemical projects in the Middle East. More recently he held positions at Aon and Alesco, advising and supporting renewable energy projects in emerging territories. 

In his new role, Bob will primarily be focusing on renewable energy across a wide range of technologies including onshore and offshore wind, solar, biomass, wave and tidal, hydro and battery storage. As part of JLT’s Renewable Energy team, Bob will act as key risk and insurance advisor to developers, manufacturers, contractors and investors across a range of technologies on a global basis.

Richard Gurney, CEO of JLT Construction, said: ‘The renewable energy sector is a rapidly-changing and dynamic market that has seen significant growth over recent years. As well as creating jobs and opportunities for innovative new products, the sector also contributes to the economy by attracting a huge amount of investment. 

‘Bob is a welcome addition to JLT’s already successful team. His wealth of experience will further strengthen our offering to businesses within the sector and give them the support they need to grow in this dynamic industry.’
