FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Risk Strategies, a privately held, rapidly growing national insurance brokerage and risk management firm, today announced the appointment of Scott Stamper as managing director to run day-to-day operations and help guide the growth of Atlass Insurance Group, the company’s recreational and commercial marine division.

A seasoned industry veteran, Stamper has been with Atlass for 17 years. He began his brokerage career in 1986 working with World Marine Underwriters in Fort Lauderdale. Atlass joined the Risk Strategies family of companies in May of 2016.  

“From small recreational crafts to ocean-going mega-yachts, Atlass’ unmatched technical knowledge and specialty carrier access helps clients simplify marine risk complexities,” said John Mina, president of Risk Strategies. “We believe Scott’s proven track record, industry experience and leadership skills can push this business to the next level.”

In his new role, Stamper will focus on growth and further expanding Atlass’ reach both within the Risk Strategies family of companies and beyond. He will also serve as part of the senior leadership team in Florida under Risk Strategies’ Florida regional leader, Scott Popilek.  

“Risk Strategies has built a strong reputation for deep technical knowledge in its specialties as well as for exceptional client service,” said Stamper. “I’m looking forward to helping John and Scott build on what has worked so well and finding ways of delivering even more value to clients.” 

“Atlass is a leading worldwide brand in the marine insurance industry, and I could think of no one better to be the face of that brand than Scott Stamper,” said Popilek. “We expect great things from Scott and his team as we look to move the business and brand forward as part of Risk Strategies.”

A resident of the Fort Lauderdale area, Stamper is a member of the International Yacht Brokers Association; International Superyacht Society and the Lauderdale Yacht Club. He will be based out of Atlass’ Fort Lauderdale office and will also oversee the Atlass offices in Cocoa, FL and Newport, RI.
