DAS Legal Protection
Rissa Revin began her career as a litigator who “refused to work on anything related to insurance.” Eventually, after being exposed to specialty casualty, she began to understand the breadth of business the industry offers and found that she enjoyed it so much that she was inspired to move in-house. In late 2018, Revin took over as CEO at DAS Legal Protection, a role that has increased her knowledge and experience and helped her grow both professionally and personally – “especially given the 2020 we’ve all had so far,” she says.
Revin says she’s motivated daily by relationships, helping people, diversity and the opportunity for innovation, from insurtech to developing new coverage. “Especially in this current world, the currency of this business is its people, the relationships we form, how we work together and how that helps our communities,” she says. “Often in some of the most challenging times, insurance offers solutions. Diversity – of people, background, thought leadership, culture and approach – [is how] this business is continuously rebuilt; it’s the way we can keep insurance ahead of the curve.”
