Veteran Sports Insurance Exec Opens New Agency
June 29, 2018
FORT WAYNE, Ind. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — Jeff Ladd, a 20 year veteran in the insurance industry who most recently served as a strategic liaison for sports insurance markets and a large customer base, has opened Sports Insurance Specialists, LLC, a full service sports and special events insurance brokerage based in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The organization specializes in creating risk management solutions for sports- and special event-related activities through insurance coverage for participant liability, spectator liability, sports teams, venues, facilities, and sanctioning bodies. Sports Insurance Specialists (SIS) began operations in August 2011, and services a client base across North America.
“Our goal is to help owners and managers of sports venues assess and secure their need for effective, efficient insurance solutions,” explains Ladd, president of Sports Insurance Specialists. “We’ve been in this arena a long time, so we know first-hand what our niche needs to be. We’ve developed a stronger process that better serves long-term partnerships rather than offering a typical sales-and-claims risk management system.”
Sports Insurance Specialists focuses on providing risk management for a variety of local, regional, and national sporting and special events activities, including amateur leagues, professional and semi-professional sports teams, sporting and event facilities, motorsports events, concerts, conventions, and the sanctioning bodies, administrative staff and personnel associated with each venue. The team at SIS has more than 50 years of risk management experience, and by design, offers a competitive rate structure and response time.
