Risk Strategies promotes two in its national health care practice

Risk Strategies has promoted Tracy Hoffman and Matthew Smith to be executive vice presidents of its national health care practice.

Both Hoffman and Smith previously served as senior vice presidents.

Hoffman has over 25 years of experience in health care brokerage and underwriting, having worked with hospitals, physician groups, health plans and accountable care organisations. She takes on additional responsibilities, working alongside Riggs Stephenson, managing director of Risk Strategies, to spearhead new strategies that respond to the ever-evolving needs of health care organisations. Risk Strategies hopes this will ensure the company maintains its position as a market leader in the managed care business.

Smith has been working in the re/insurance industry for more than 20 years, primarily focused on the life, disability, accident and health markets. In his new role he works with Tony Plampton, another managing director, to grow the company’s life, accident and health reinsurance business nationally, by pursuing continuous innovation and strategic improvements.

Bob Dubraski, chief growth officer and national health care practice leader, said promoting the pair will open new and exciting growth opportunities for Risk Strategies.

Smith said: “Our clients operate in a challenging market, filled with constant competition and pressure to meet the needs of the consumer while keeping up with medical advancements and regulatory changes. It will be great to leverage our team’s collective experience to take Risk’s Strategies’ health care practice and reinsurance services to another level.”
