Area senior vice president
Risk Placement Services
Specialty Equipment Breakdown
As an equipment breakdown coverage expert with more than 30 years of experience, Joel Bissing has been with Risk Placement Services [RPS] since 2006 and has worked with carriers on policy wordings, application of coverage and claims settlements. Presently, Bissing is the single largest wholesale producer of equipment breakdown coverage for RPS and is considered a top-tier producer for his key insurance carriers.
Bissing was instrumental in helping create the Arthur J. Gallagher/RPS Advantage Equipment Breakdown Coverage Program, consisting of a panel of five A.M. Best-rated equipment breakdown insurance carriers that provide competitive rates, deductibles, sublimits, extensions of coverage, and broad policy terms and conditions. Since its inception in 2017, the program has grown approximately 44%. In addition to his brokerage duties, Bissing supports the RPS intern program and has been training an associate broker hired out of the program with an eye toward increasing sales production for his team.
