Risk Strategies Appoints Flanagan as New England Regional Operations Leader

September 10, 2019

Risk Strategies, a privately held national insurance brokerage and risk management firm, has appointed Edward J. Flanagan, a veteran broker and sales leader, as New England regional operations leader.

Flanagan will succeed John Scroope, who has been promoted to the newly created role of national director of Retail Operations.

Flanagan comes to Risk Strategies from Arthur J. Gallagher, where he worked as a producer focused on clients in the technology, life sciences, financial services and healthcare industries.

In his prior role, Flanagan led a high technology practice, served as liaison to the Worldwide Broker Network and sales leader, where he was responsible for recruiting, hiring and developing new producers across both the property and casualty and employee benefits practices. He was also a member of the operating committee, helping to develop and manage strategies for growing branch revenue and profitability.

Like his predecessor, Flanagan will oversee both the firm’s New England region operations and its Boston headquarters office.

Scroope, who joined Risk Strategies in October of 2017, will continue to be based in Boston as his operational oversight shifts to the national level.

In his new role, Scroope will coordinate with the company’s regional operations leaders to drive organic growth in those territories, as well as to facilitate the integration of acquired organizations into regional and national operations.

Risk Strategies is a privately held, national firm with offices across the country. The company offers risk management advice as well as insurance and reinsurance placement for property and casualty, healthcare and employee benefits risks.

Risk Strategies serves commercial companies, non-profits, public entities and individuals. It has offices in more than 50 locations nationwide including Boston, New York City, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Dallas, Nashville, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
