Helio adds former regulator to team

US national captive management and risk consulting services provider Helio has added Victor Gallardo to its growing team. 

He will be based in Helio’s Oklahoma City headquarters.

Gallardo joins Helio from the Oklahoma Insurance Department. He held various roles with the regulatory body over the last three years, most recently captive analyst. Gallardo will primarily be responsible for providing captive management services to Helio’s expanding captive insurance company portfolio.

“Helio has grown considerably in recent months, and our pipeline of new captive formations is robust,” commented Helio’s managing partner, Heather McClure. “We are thrilled to add Victor to support our top- notch service to an increasing number of clients.”

“Adding Victor with his regulatory experience further bolsters Helio’s client service offering,” remarked Helio’s chief operating officer, Jesse Olsen. “His addition nicely complements our existing staff’s uncommonly broad and deep expertise. This continues to be significant differentiator for Helio, and Victor is an excellent addition to our capabilities.”

“I’m excited to join Helio as I move into this next phase of my professional career,” said Gallardo. “I’m grateful for my time at the Department, especially learning under Steve Kinion and Andy Schallhorn. Joining Helio is an incredible opportunity. I was drawn by a number of factors, particularly the firm’s life stage and growth trajectory.”
