Press release:

Lockton Continues Retirement Growth in the Southeast

Issued by: Lockton

Date: Nov. 27, 2017

CHARLOTTE, NC, Nov. 16, 2017 –  Lockton’s Retirement business added another advisor to its ranks with the hire of 20-year industry veteran, Michelle Zevola, to its Charlotte, NC office. A former Client Executive at Transamerica, Zevola focused on the company’s largest and most complex retirement plans, and was recognized by independent rating services as one of the top relationship managers in the United States for five consecutive years.

She has expertise consulting with employers on the complete spectrum of retirement benefits — defined contribution, defined benefit, and deferred compensation — and has done extensive work advising plan sponsors on the transition of benefits through mergers and acquisitions.

“Clients ask us to round out their risk management strategy through not only insurance coverage, but by addressing their retirement benefits exposure, as well,” said Doug Hutcherson, Chief Executive Officer of Lockton’s Southeast operations. “Michelle has seen some of the most complex plan issues in the country and that experience will enable her to offer exactly the kind of comprehensive advice customers expect from Lockton.”

“We’ve made several hires in the Southeast, specific to retirement,” said Manoj Sharma, Chief Operating Officer for Lockton in Atlanta, GA. “The addition of Michelle to our team is in direct response to our clients’ need for sophisticated consulting on their retirement benefits.”

“Across the country, Lockton’s retirement business has grown tremendously in the past several years,” said Pam Popp, President of Lockton’s Retirement Practice. “But we’ve done that while maintaining a commitment to quality and attracting talented team members. Advisors who share Michelle’s service orientation and depth of knowledge are exactly the kind of people we’ve been recruiting and plan to continue adding.”

Zevola can be reached at or by calling (704) 556-4109.

Lockton’s retirement practice advises more than 1,100 plans, representing $53 billion in assets. Follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter @Lockton_Retire.
