Vice President

Nicholas Beffa

CPCU

Contact: nbeffa@lockton.com

I am a Senior Account Manager in Lockton’s Property Practice. I joined Lockton in 2012 and since that time have been primarily focused on engineered risk property insurance programs. Prior to Lockton, I worked in the underwriting department at Vanliner Insurance, shortly after graduating from the University of Dayton in Ohio.

Having spent the majority of my career working with CPCUs on a regular basis, I have seen how respected a designation it truly is. I decided to pursue it myself and earned my CPCU designation in 2015. In 2016, I joined the St. Louis CPCU Chapter board as a Director. That same year I also completed my ARM designation.
