Captive veteran joins McGriff

US retail insurance broker McGriff has hired industry veteran Bud Curtis as a vice president and alternative risk business development manager.

Curtis will collaborate with McGriff sales and service teams to educate clients on captives and other alternative risk transfer options.

Curtis has developed specialty programs, risk retention groups, captives, and self-insured funds for several industries over an extensive 45-year career in providing alternative risk and captive solutions with local, regional and national brokers.

He is a member of the Tennessee Captive Insurance Association and serves as a board member for several risk retention groups.

“Captives are a critical risk mitigation strategy for our clients,” said McGriff National Middle Market Director Mike Breedlove. “We’re excited to welcome a proven expert in alternative risk transfer in Bud. He’s uniquely qualified to help drive strategy and engagement with our industry practices, Truist bank verticals and other stakeholders.”
