July 1, 2009

Atlanta-based commercial insurance brokerage and consulting firm Beecher Carlson has appointed Kevin Grady as managing director based in its Nashville, Tenn., office.

Grady, who has 20 years of experience in analytics, will focus on the management of Beecher Carlson’s ZOOM methodology that combines claims processing, data gathering, predictive analytics and results-based metrics to systematically pinpoint and quantify major opportunities for casualty cost of risk reductions.

Beecher Carlson says it is the first and only brokerage to integrate data mining within its casualty and liability operations to identify patterns in data that can help lower insurance costs proactively.

Prior to joining Beecher Carlson, Grady served as vice president of Claims for Aon Risk Services, where he focused on the development of data-driven, cost containment strategies proven to improve year-over-year performance and reduce the total cost of risk.

Prior to Aon, Grady was with Alexsis Risk Management Co., where he managed operations for all Tennessee locations while providing national account management services.

He started his insurance career working for Aetna Life and Casualty where he managed multi-line claims including workers compensation, general liability, property and medical malpractice.

Beecher Carlson is a privately held company with its corporate office in Atlanta. Beecher Carlson also maintains operations in Bermuda; Boston; Irvine, San Francisco, Walnut Creek and Woodland Hills, California; Connecticut; Denver; Florida; Honolulu; Houston; Eugene, Bend, Portland and Medford, Oregon; Gulfport Mississippi; Minnesota; Las Vegas; New York; Nashville; Phoenix; Providence, Rhode Island and Burlington, Vermont.
