Risk Strategies scoops up Maryland insurance firm

National insurance brokerage and risk management firm Risk Strategies has announced that it has acquired Creative Insurance Solutions, a provider of customer insurance and risk management programs to successful individuals and families.

Founded in 2006 by Steven Bender, Creative Insurance Solutions has offices in Potomac, Md., and Washington, D.C. The firm offers customized placement for insurance needs including primary and secondary residences, private collections, identity theft, lost income, and kidnap and ransom.

The acquisition expands Risk Strategies’ Mid-Atlantic footprint.

“When evaluating potential partner organizations, we seek out specialization, expertise, and a smart, entrepreneurial spirit,” said Bob Courtemanche, national private-client practice leader for Risk Strategies. “Steven and his organization ticked all of those boxes and will be great additions to our efforts in the region and the practice.”

“We saw joining Risk Strategies as a great opportunity for our clients and our business,” Bender said. “Our clients get access to deep expertise and broad resources, while our business can grow in an environment built for collaboration and initiative.”
