Risk Strategies has appointed Brad Gabbard (pictured) as senior vice-president to the company’s national healthcare practice.
Gabbard most recently served as executive vice-president and healthcare practice leader for Willis Towers Watson, where he was based in Columbus, OH. He spent nine years at Aon Risk Services, focused on the healthcare industry, and spent time as a medical professional liability underwriter with General Electric’s Employers Reinsurance Corporation.
“Risk Strategies’ healthcare practice is committed to hiring and retaining the best experts in the business in order to deliver superior service and advice to healthcare clients across the spectrum of risk,” said Risk Strategies national healthcare practice leader Bob Dubraski.
A release noted that Gabbard is one of the few brokers in the US to have focused healthcare experience while working with both major brokerage firms and a major reinsurer.
“Being part of a firm built on industry specialization and joining a truly national, client-focused healthcare team that collaborates to deliver value across all areas of risk is exactly what I was looking for to best serve healthcare clients throughout the country,” said Gabbard, who also shared how excited he is to join Risk Strategies.
