AP Captives Leadership

Customized risk management solutions where your input matters

Meet the AP Captives Team

Building a customized, alternative solution to your company’s risk management needs can be a daunting task. The AssuredPartners team brings knowledge, understanding, commitment, and dedication to champion the best interest of your organization.

While we recognize two important parts of an effective captive are control over your company’s future and return on your investment, we value another important element – your input. Sharing risk means partnering with the right companies and the right people, but it also means your voice counts. We understand the key to a successful captive is supporting the group while making sure each individual concern is addressed. Our team is uniquely equipped to make sure your input matters.
