Fairlawn, Ohio (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Private equity owners and other businesses on the East Coast now can get local support from one of the nation’s top risk management companies. Risk International has opened a new branch in Wilmington, Del., joining offices in Cleveland, Charlotte, Columbus, central Michigan, London and Singapore.
The new office will be focused on serving private equity clients, many of whom have had a growing interest in Risk International.
“Our laser focus on reducing total cost of risk often supports the financial and operational goals that private equity owners have for their new ventures,” said RI President and CEO, Michael D. Davis. “We have been engaged in a number of P.E. deals in 2013, and expect the trend to accelerate going forward.”
Risk International continues to grow at a brisk pace, providing risk management consulting, outsourced risk management, claims mitigation, loss prevention, claims recovery and due diligence services. In the first 100 days of 2013, the company had already doubled its new business sales from 2012.
Wilmington is Risk International’s fifth new location since 2009, following the addition of offices in London, Singapore, Columbus and central Michigan.
John Talley, a long-time key business partner of Risk International, will become managing director of the Wilmington office.
“We have valued John’s expertise for more than 20 years,” said RI Executive Vice President and COO, Kirk N. Walsh. “We look forward to working with him full-time and know our private equity clients will be served well under his leadership.”
