Tampa, FL (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
Lykes Insurance is proud to announce the appointment of three new risk consultants to their growing staff: Josh Helmuth, Larry Weaver, and Fritz Archerd.
Josh Helmuth began his insurance career in 2006 with Risk Services in Sarasota where he was employed as a Marketing Representative for the in-house Payroll Service. Upon learning more about the insurance industry, Helmuth made a decision to change his career direction to represent business' insurance programs as a Commercial Agent with Brown & Brown Insurance of Sarasota. During his tenure with Brown & Brown, Helmuth developed specific expertise in designing insurance programs for Contracting and Agricultural related businesses. His responsibilities for Lykes Insurance include insurance program assessment and designing risk management with specialties in the construction and agribusiness industries.
Larry Weaver was involved in the electrical contracting and utilities industry, with a special interest in high rise commercial projects. One of the many projects he oversaw was the grounds traffic and lighting safety program at USF. After graduating from the University of Tampa, he worked in the wholesale banking industry as a national account executive focusing on residential development. Larry’s extensive field knowledge as an independent claims adjuster and property casualty risk consultant has been essential in evaluating exposures and policy deficiencies.
As a risk consultant to middle-market commercial entities and surety bond specialist, Fritz Archerd comes to Lykes Insurance from Baldwin Krystyn Sherman. He previously headed The Archerd Company which provided project management and development services for such notable projects as Old Memorial Golf Club, Pepin Distribution Center, Kingsway Estates and Tampa Gateway Park. A former Certified Public Accountant, Fritz began his career with Arthur Andersen & Co. and later served as the Chief Financial Officer of Cheval Polo & Golf Club and Turner Equity Investors, an AMEX listed REIT.
