Expanding U.S. insurance brokerage, Risk Strategies has announced the appointment of Edward Flanagan from Arthur J. Gallagher as New England Regional Operations Leader.
Flanagan succeeds John Scroope, who has been promoted to National Director of Retail Operations, a newly created role.
He brings three decades of industry experience to the role and joins from Arthur J. Gallagher, where he served as a producer focused on clients in the tech, life sciences, financial services and healthcare industries.
President of Risk Strategies, John Mina, said: “The rapid growth of Risk Strategies is both exciting and challenging, requiring that we continuously evolve our structure to keep pace. With John moving up to oversee national retail operations, we saw Ed’s experience as a perfect fit for our New England region’s needs.”
Flanagan will take oversight of the firm’s New England region operations and its Boston headquarters office. While Scroope, who joined the firm in October of 2017, will remain in Boston as his operational oversight shifts to the national level.
Flanagan commented on his new role: “I’m thrilled to join an organization that is in such a dynamic growth phase. I believe my hands-on experience working with clients, developing sales teams and managing operations will translate well to this position and help our regional offices achieve even greater results.”
