Blackwell Captive Solutions appoints Kennedy to sales position

Blackwell Captive Solutions, a medical stop-loss captive domiciled in South Carolina and sponsored by Carrick Capital Partners, has appointed Arleigh Kennedy as its new national vice president, sales.

"We are delighted to welcome Arleigh to the Blackwell Captive Solutions team," said Kari Niblack, president of Blackwell Captive Solutions. "As Blackwell continues to differentiate and deliver flexible options and solutions that are unique from other captives, Arleigh’s excellent reputation, vast knowledge of the industry, and creativity elevate Blackwell to a higher level of service in providing groundbreaking solutions to our clients."

Kennedy comes to Blackwell Captive Solutions with over 25 years of experience in the insurance and self-funded industry. Her knowledge and expertise expand from her past work for companies such as AccuRisk Solutions, Evolution Risk Partners, Sutton Special Risk and Blue Cross and Blue Shield, as well as her work in underwriting, sales, product development, and vendor relationships.

"I’m excited to join Blackwell Captive Solutions to help deliver unique, impactful solutions for clients with an emphasis on choice and flexibility," said Kennedy. "In the years that I have been in this industry, I have seen a lot of change. Employers are looking for partners who are going to help them manage the rising costs of health insurance. It’s also the recognition that one size does not fit all. It’s a flexible approach balanced with access to best-in-class partners that sets Blackwell apart."
