Hanna heads to Conner Strong & Beckelew as VP
Industry thought leader Ed Hanna joins Conner Strong & Buckelew, a leading insurance, risk management and employee benefits brokerage and consulting firm, as vice president of enterprise risk management (ERM).
Hanna has over 20 years’ experience helping clients create meaningful and efficient ERM programs that allow senior leaders and boards to foster more risk aware cultures and promote timely decision making without creating overly complex bureaucracies that stifle agility. This investment epitomizes the firm’s strategic objectives to further develop and expand industry expertise, navigate challenging markets, foster innovation, and promote mutual growth with clients.
In this newly created position, Hanna will oversee the development and delivery of new technologies and services to better manage risk. The practice will work closely with Major Accounts and Employee Benefits Divisions to bring services full circle by mapping risks to commercial and human capital insurance solutions. Further, clients will gain awareness of non-insurable risks too often managed in silos and be positioned to make better decisions to mitigate the downside and capitalize on the upside of risk.
“As Conner Strong continues to grow, we’re excited to expand our service offering by bringing Ed on board to head up our Enterprise Risk Management practice,” said Michael Tiagwad, president and CEO of Conner Strong & Buckelew. “An effective ERM process is an important strategic tool for business leaders, and with Ed’s expertise, we’re delighted to bring these valuable insights and solutions to our clients“.
Hanna has extensive experience with both enterprise and insurance-based risk management solutions in a broad range of industry verticals. Most recently he served as the commercial and sales leader for RCM&D’s Pennsylvania operations.
Hanna is also an active member of the insurance industry and serves as chair of the board of directors for the Insurance Society of Philadelphia.
