Berry joins as national manager for trade credit, surety and political risk (TCSP) and Awada as a manager in the TCSP team. Both roles are newly-created and based in Sydney.
Berry will be reporting to Paul Marsden, Lockton Australia’s CEO, and Awada will be reporting to Berry.
Berry previously led AIG’s multinational and strategic markets (Asia and India) trade credit division. Awada was a senior underwriter at AIG.
