Ryan Specialty Creates Global Transactional Risk Practice: Ryan Transactional Risk


Ryan Specialty (NYSE: RYAN) is pleased to announce the formation of its global transactional risk practice, Ryan Transactional Risk. This global managing general underwriting practice is being created by combining the operations of Concord Specialty Risks (headquartered in New York City) and Ryan Specialty Transactional Risks International (headquartered in London).

Ryan Transactional Risk will be led by four Managing Directors, each a longstanding executive of one of the existing managing general underwriters (“MGUs”):

  • Representations & Warranties and Warranty & Indemnity insurance will be led globally by James Montgomery, George Pearce and Rich Stansfield
  • Specific Litigation and Contingent Liability insurance management, innovation, and global expansion will be led by David S. De Berry
  • Tax insurance will be coordinated by the Managing Directors, supported by exceptional regional leadership and expertise: Bill Kellogg (North America) and Kerry Westwell (Rest of World), with an emphasis on serving the needs of multinational enterprises

Commenting on this new structure, Miles Wuller, President & CEO of Ryan Specialty Underwriting Managers, said, “The unification of these two exceptional MGUs will enhance both service and solutions to our global clients and carrier trading partners. This new approach will continue to be supported by our growing network of expertise composed of roughly 55 teammates in this practice, served out of eight locations globally.”

For more information, please contact any of the Managing Directors:
