Risk Strategies taps two company veterans as EVPs

Risk Strategies has announced the promotions of Tracy Hoffman and Matthew Smith to executive vice presidents of its national healthcare practice. Hoffman and Smith previously served as senior vice presidents.

“Tracy and Matt have been incredible assets to Risk Strategies for years,” said Bob Dubraski, chief growth officer and national healthcare practice leader. “In moving them into these pivotal roles, we’re confident that they will leverage their combined experience into new and exciting growth opportunities for Risk Strategies and our healthcare practice.”

Hoffman has more than 25 years of insurance industry experience, with a strong focus on the healthcare sector. She has worked with hospitals, physician groups, health plans and more. In her new role, Hoffman will work with managing director Riggs Stephenson to spearhead strategies that respond to the evolving needs of healthcare organizations.

“I’ve been privileged to be a part of Risk Strategies’ ongoing growth and success,” Hoffman said. “The depth and breadth of our team is exceptional, and I am excited to support them with innovative new solutions and strategies for our healthcare clients.”

In his new role, Smith will work with managing director Tony Plampton to grow the company’s life, accident and health reinsurance business. Smith has more than 20 years of industry experience, primarily in the life, disability, accident and health markets.

“I look forward to continuing to work with our reinsurance team and, in this new role, build upon the impressive foundation that has been established by the team over many years,” Smith said. “Our clients operate in a challenging market filled with constant competition and pressure to meet the needs of the consumer while keeping up with medical advancements and regulatory changes. It will be great to leverage our team’s collective experience to take Risk Strategies’ healthcare practice and reinsurance services to another level.”
