BOSTON, Oct. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Risk Strategies Company, a privately held, rapidly growing national insurance brokerage and risk management firm, today announced it has hired John Scroope to manage its New England regional operations. Scroope will also lead the company’s corporate headquarters office in Boston.
An industry veteran with over 20 years of experience in insurance management and underwriting, Scroope joins Risk Stragies from Boston-based CNA Insurance where he served as branch president. Prior to that, he was regional president at OneBeacon Insurance and spent the first dozen years of his insurance career in underwriting and marketing with Chubb Insurance.
“We are on a dynamic growth trajectory, but growth is not an end in itself,” stated Risk Strategies Company President, John Mina. “Ensuring that our rapid expansion translates into efficient operations and highly effective client service requires leadership of the type John has exhibited throughout his career.”
Founded in Boston in 1997 as a risk management advisor to upper-middle market companies, Risk Strategies quickly transformed its business model to add insurance placement and broking. It has since established itself as one of the country’s leading specialist brokerages, growing through strategic, often complementary, acquisitions.
“Risk Strategies is clearly building a different type of brokerage — specialist-driven with deep expertise that makes hard problems simple,” said Scroope. “Given my background in insurance and underwriting, I understand the value of effective, well-coordinated operations can have in helping an organization deliver for clients at scale.”
In addition to the Boston headquarters, Scroope will coordinate efforts among a growing footprint of offices and operations in the company’s New England region, including Providence and Newport, Rhode Island; Portsmouth, New Hampshire; Lynnfield; Worcester and Randolph, Massachusetts.
Scroope holds a law degree from the Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University in New York and a bachelor of science in law from Fairfield University in Connecticut.
