It was in 2011 that Ryan Brown, partner, executive vice president at Lockton Companies, first joined the brokerage community. Recognizing a need for specialized brokerage services in a particular sector, Brown founded Lockton’s Metals and Mining Practice.

Recognized as a key problem solver within the risk management community, Brown understands how operational challenges, competition for resources, time pressures, and organizational dynamics can impact major risk management programs.

“Ryan Brown did a masterful job of placing a new insurance program on little-to-no notice in a hard market as part of a $3.2 billion cross-border transaction,” said one client.

Jeff Novorita, senior manager of risk management at Cleveland Cliffs, Inc., added that Brown is “on the cutting edge of risk mitigation techniques and aligned with all the power insurance carriers, which helps immensely with rates and terms and conditions needed to tailor our insurance program most efficiently.”

During Cleveland Cliffs most recent M&A, Brown worked with domestic and foreign markets to implement a property insurance program.

The arrangement included rolling three separate programs with three different renewal dates into one program with more than $40 billion in insured values. It was in place in 59 days.

“It was nothing short of miraculous,” Novorita said.
