Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2012
Alliant Insurance Services (http://www.alliantinsurance.com), the nation’s largest specialty insurance brokerage firm, has announced the hiring of three top risk management and insurance producers in its New York City office to head the company’s new group, Asia Strategic Resources (ASR), which will specialize in developing and servicing U.S.-based Asian corporate clients.
The three new producers are Senior Vice President Ryad Dahbi, Senior Vice President Bill O’Reilly, and Vice President Kaori Matsumoto. They join Alliant from a Top 5 international insurance brokerage where they were key members of that firm’s New York City-based Japan team.
Collectively, the new Alliant producers have more than 60 years of diverse experience in meeting the specialized risk management and insurance needs of Asian corporations operating in the U.S.
“The addition of Ryad Dahbi, Bill O’Reilly, and Kaori Matsumoto provides Alliant with extensive expertise about the special insurance and risk management needs of major Asian corporations that operate in the United States,” said Walter Harris, Alliant Vice Chairman and Senior Managing Director, Commercial and Corporate Risk Group. “In addition, each of them is highly knowledgeable about key business issues that are important to Asian-owned companies, and each has an intimate understanding of those companies’ corporate cultures, a critical factor in doing business with them.”
“With Ryad, Bill, and Kaori heading up our new Asia Strategic Resources team, Alliant gains immediate credibility with the Asian corporate marketplace in a wide range of industries,” Harris emphasized.
Dahbi, who has 19 years of risk management experience, has focused on large international organizations in diverse industries, including retail, telecommunications, pharmaceutical, automotive, and electronics. He has held international brokerage and risk-consulting positions in New York, London, and Tokyo. In addition to his previous position with the Japan corporate client team, his brokerage experience includes managing a team that provided risk and insurance solutions to large corporations operating out of Hong Kong.
With 25 years in brokering and underwriting, O’Reilly has served clients in heavy manufacturing, consumer products, transportation, financial, and construction chemical industries, including Fortune 100 companies. Prior to his previous position, he was Senior Client Advisor for another prominent global brokerage firm where he was instrumental in creating innovative solutions for difficult placements.
Matsumoto has 16 years of experience in consulting and marketing property and casualty and employee benefits programs to predominantly Japanese companies. At Alliant, she will be responsible for developing new business, managing carrier relationships, and ensuring that programs meet specific client needs and standards.
