SRS establishes North Carolina office, hires regional manager

Strategic Risk Solutions (SRS) has opened a new office in the Charlotte, North Carolina area - the firm's first permanent presence in the state since it started managing captives there in 2014.

Spearheading this office is Dana Williams, who has been appointed as regional manager for North Carolina and Ohio.

Williams has over 15 years of experience in senior finance position in the insurance industry. She was previously chief financial officer of Hub International Eastern Canada and Worldwide Broker Network, before serving as chief operating officer of Steadfast, and Australasian insurance broking network.

She also spent several years in the captive insurance industry in the Cayman Islands and at a reinsurance company in Bermuda.

"I am excited to take on this new challenge in my career. I have known Brady and SRS for a while and admire what SRS has achieved and the reputation the firm has built. This opportunity allows me to return to the captive insurance industry and be more actively involved in day to day financial management as well as working with a variety of client organizations" said Williams. "North Carolina is a rising, progressive domicile and I am looking forward to working with the regulators and local captive community."

Brady Young, president of Strategic Risk Solutions, added: "We have worked with Dana on a couple of different projects including our expansion into Barbados and are very pleased to be able to welcome her full-time to SRS.

"Her experience as a financial executive in the insurance industry is exceptional and we are confident she will be a valuable addition to the firm especially in expanding our presence in North Carolina and growing that presence in Ohio. We are keen to do more work in these domiciles and we believe Dana's addition in a local North Carolina office will help better serve our clients there."
