Risk Strategies continues to strengthen employee benefits practice

Risk Strategies has appointed Michael Grant as employee benefits practice leader for Greater New York.

Grant was previously senior vice president and managing director at a New York City insurance brokerage. He restructured its single employee benefits office in New York into a national practice, spanning California, Texas and Florida.

Risk Strategies recently promoted Chris Powers to oversee its Eastern US employee benefits operations. Grant will work closely with Powers to grow the firm’s overall employee benefits business.

Grant promised his “hands-on experience working with clients, managing sales teams and leading operations will help achieve even greater results for the firm’s New York operations as it continues to grow.”
