Mike’s appointment is a demonstration of our continued, unwavering commitment to build a best-in-class, game-changing industry platform.”

Rice will now head up a team of experienced insurance executives including president Bruce Denson Jr., chief revenue officer David Payne and senior managing director and head of investment banking Jack Leventhal.

“CAC has assembled an incredibly talented group of insurance and investment banking specialists, all of whom are focused on challenging the status quo for the benefit of our clients and our employees. Our foundation is strong, and I could not be more excited about our future.”
