Brien Heimbuch, Broker, Risk Placement Services
Risk Placement Services
While Brien Heimbuch was a student at Illinois State University’s Katie School of Insurance & Financial Services, he interned at Risk Placement Services. After graduating with a degree is insurance and risk management, he accepted a position as an associate broker with Risk Placement Services’ healthcare division, specializing in long-term care and other healthcare professional liability risks. After learning the marketplace and developing relationships with underwriters, Heimbuch transitioned into the broker role he holds today.
“A challenge in the healthcare specialty is that the large admitted carriers have a surplus of cash reserved and are taking on risks that do not fit the historical ‘standard risk’ mold,” Heimbuch says. “This is a cyclical trend, and we will see a change back to the true standard versus nonstandard marketplace within the next few years.”
