RiskProNet Names Webb Chair of Benefits Group

Mickey Webb, the vice president of employee benefits for Associated Financial Group in Minnetonka, Minn., has been named chair of the employee benefits practice group of RiskProNet International, a network of 28 independent insurance brokers across the United States and Canada.

She succeeds Sean LaBorde, the vice of president sales and employee benefits at Mortenson, Matzelle & Meldrum Inc. in Madison, Wis.
Webb joined CFS Insurance Services in the accounting department, serving as controller before moving to the employee benefits position four years ago. CFG became part of Associated Financial Group last year.

Associated Financial Group serves the financial and insurance needs of more than 2,000 clients. It handles a full range of employee benefits products and services, as well as general commercial liability and special professional liability for businesses throughout the United States and Canada.

RiskPronet’s 28 partners last year had combined revenues of $497 million. Each of the 28 partners is an equal owner in the association, which gives its members the geographic diversity and shared knowledge base to serve clients with national, international or highly specialized exposures to risk. Total written premiums in 2003 were $4.8 billion.
