Move comes as firm accelerates specialty practices growth, placed premiums exceed $3 billion

BOSTON, December 18, 2018 -- Risk Strategies, a leading national specialty insurance brokerage and risk management and consulting firm, today announced it has appointed Mark Manzi as national brokerage leader. Manzi, an industry veteran with 30 years’ experience placing and negotiating coverage, began his career at Marsh in New York.
