BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2015) - Risk Strategies Company, a national insurance brokerage and risk management firm headquartered in Boston, 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.

"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."
