Risk Strategies Company Recognized as 2015 Pacesetter by Boston Business Journal

BOSTON, April 1, 2015 -- Risk Strategies, a leading national specialty insurance brokerage and risk management and consulting firm, today announced it has been recognized as a 2015 Pacesetter by the Boston Business Journal. The designation was announced in the March 12, 2015 issue of The Boston Business Journal. 

The 2015 Pacesetters is an annual list of the fastest-growing private companies in Massachusetts. This year's list includes 70 privately held businesses that recorded the state's fastest revenue growth from 2011 through 2014. To be considered, companies needed a baseline of $1 million in revenue for 2014.

Risk Strategies Company will be honored along with the other 2015 Pacesetters at an April 16, 2015 recognition breakfast to be held at the Westin Copley Place in Boston. The event will feature a countdown to the No. 1 fastest-growing company on this year's list.

"Risk Strategies Company had an unprecedented year of growth and recognition -- including recent mergers with DeWitt Stern, Crow Friedman Group and Benefit Development Group," said Michael Christian, chief executive officer of Risk Strategies Company. "With new partners, we've strengthened our resources and expertise, giving us the tools to better serve clients. We are delighted to be recognized by the Boston Business Journal as a 2015 Pacesetter for this achievement."

News of this recognition comes on the heels of an announcement by DeWitt Stern Group, a privately held insurance brokerage and risk advisory firm recently acquired by Risk Strategies Company, that three brokers in the organization were honored as 2015 Power Brokers® by Risk & Insurance® magazine.
