Risk Strategies appoints a new chief executive

Risk Strategies has appointed John Mina, who currently serves as the president of the company, as its newest chief executive officer.

Mina succeeds Michael Christian, incumbent CEO and founder of Risk Strategies, who will transition into an executive chairman role.

As CEO, Mina will be responsible for setting the strategic direction of the company. He will serve as a senior advisor to the leadership team on top of managing day-to-day operations. He will also support the needs of the company’s clients, employees, investors, and trading partners.

In his previous role as president, Mina was instrumental in the creation of efficient processes and a regional structure which has “thoughtfully and effectively supported the company’s ongoing path to national prominence,” a release said. During his tenure as president, Risk Strategies has more than doubled the number of its employees, revenues, and premiums placed on behalf of clients.

“Since joining the company, [Mina] has quickly demonstrated he has the right vision, skillset and experience to ensure the firm’s continued success as we move into our next chapter as a leading national brokerage firm,” commented Christian in a statement.

A 30-year veteran of the insurance industry, Mina joined Risk Strategies in 2017 from Willis Towers Watson, where he was head of corporate risk and broking for the Atlantic South region.

In a statement, Mina commented that clients today need advice and policy placement; they are relying on their broker for expert insight that dispels uncertainty and reduces the cost of risk.

“With the right vision and core team in place, I’m excited to lead the firm into a dynamic future,” he said.
