Captive manager Elevate appoints MD to target Midwest growth
Elevate Captives, a captive manager with its headquarters in Oklahoma City and offices in Arizona, Hawaii, and New York, has formally retained Ryan Ralston of risk management consultant RalstonRMC.
Ralston will serve as managing director, risk management, at Elevate Captives, and will be responsible for building Elevate’s presence in the Midwest and Wichita, Kansas.
According to Elevate, this decision to combine the efforts of the two companies was a natural extension of their ongoing multi-year consulting relationship.
Together the two companies will focus on developing risk management strategies and captive insurance services.
“Ryan and Elevate have had a long relationship providing these services on a consulting basis. Joining forces will provide our clients substantially greater resources in the captive space which will enable us to build much stronger relationships”, said Jerry Messick, CEO of Elevate Captives.
Ralston added: “While Elevate has provided industry-leading services regarding captive insurance for many years, I’m excited to help Elevate clients enhance their enterprise risk management strategies, to take even greater advantage of existing and new captive platforms. I’m absolutely thrilled to be able to bring a dedicated risk management resource to the market alongside Elevate.”
