NFP strengthens its captives practice with two hires

NFP, an insurance broker and consultant, has appointed Jonathan McKenzie as vice president and head of US captive management operations in its Risk and Insurance Strategy Collective (RISC).

Ramon Ramos has also joined NFP’s RISC as a senior account executive.

RISC is a specialty practice within NFP that provides alternative risk, captive consulting and ongoing captive management solutions.

McKenzie has more than 20 years of captive and risk management experience and was most recently head of captive management at Alterna, where he developed captive insurance operations and provided financial and regulatory services to US-domiciled captive insurance companies. In his new role he works with Tracy Stopford and Kara Tencellent, managing directors and co-leaders of RISC, to advance operational and business development initiatives. He reports to Stopford.

Ramos has over 17 years of experience in the captive industry and most recently served as an account executive with Marsh Management Services. He was previously with USA Risk Group for over 10 years and spent time in public accounting. He reports to McKenzie.

Both McKenzie and Ramos are active members of many captive associations and continue to serve on various committees within the captive industry.

Stopford said McKenzie’s “experience, depth of captive market knowledge and extensive industry relationships will help drive our growth and enhance our ability to help clients identify and understand creative and innovative alternative risk solutions that align with their needs.”

McKenzie added: “The diverse expertise and proven dedication to the captive industry across the RISC team puts us in a great position to enhance the insight and value we deliver to clients.”
