Lamont Thurston brings a global perspective to strategic planning having lived and worked abroad in both Asia and Europe. He enjoyed a 14-year corporate banking career with one of the nation’s largest banks. Among his assignments, he managed the Asian Desk, performed bank acquisition turnaround work, started, staffed and grew specialty lending groups and ended his tenure managing a major Commercial Division for 4 years.

During a subsequent 10-year insurance career, he also founded a captive insurance consulting and management company that formed and operates 22 single parent and group captive insurance companies. These formations were in part developed through a quantitative risk assessment program developed by Thurston and his team.

As President and founder of LightStance, Lamont is the head of strategy and primarily consults with companies regarding prioritized opportunities, risks, actions and financing strategies.
