Insurance experts Myers and Conti join RYZE Claim Solutions Board

RYZE Claim Solutions, a provider of claims services to insurance carriers and managing general agents, has announced the appointment of Stuart Myers and Christopher Conti, to its Board of Directors.

Together, both executives – who are highly regarded experts in the insurance and investment industries – bring decades of leadership experience, driving innovation, increasing efficiency, and improving client satisfaction for a number of established insurance companies throughout their tenured careers.

Tony Grippa, RYZE Executive Chairman of the Board, commented: “With significant expertise in insurance, investments, and the wider financial services industry, Stu and Chris bring valuable experience to our board.

“Their guidance will be critical as we continue our trajectory and evaluate M&A opportunities to complement our rapid organic growth.”

Myers is the former President and Chief Operating Officer for York Insurance Services, which was acquired by AIG.

During his time at AIG, he served as Senior Vice President of claims services. Recently, Myers led as Chief Operating Officer of Stuart Myers Consulting, an advisor to a variety of clients in the insurance, government, real estate, and manufacturing sectors.

Prior to forming its consulting firm, he served as a risk management consultant to the City of Miami, Florida, where he advised the mayor and had oversight of the city’s risk management budget.

Commenting on his appointment, Myers said: “I have been impressed with the significant expansion of RYZE’s footprint in the claims industry under Tony’s direction.

“As the Company seeks opportunities to thoughtfully expand its platform and market-leading offerings, I am excited to partner with the rest of the Board and management team to guide RYZE through its next phase of continued growth.”

Like Muers, Conti, a former Fortune 300 senior operations executive, is also joining RYZE Claim Solutions Board of Directors.

The executive was most recently a member of the senior leadership team of American Family Group where he held the position of Enterprise Chief Claims Officer, President of AFICS (American Family Insurance Claims Services) until retiring in January 2023.

In that role, Conti led the consolidation of five claims operations and created AFICS to support operating companies within the American Family Group.

He joined AmFam Group through its acquisition of Homesite, where he served as EVP, Operations and Human Resources. Before Homesite, Conti held consulting positions with Cambridge Technology Partners and Gemini Consulting.

“RYZE, in partnership with Bain Capital Insurance, is very well-positioned to explore opportunities that will increase its presence in the claims industry and better serve clients across the insurance carrier and MGA universe,” Conti said.

Adding: “I am looking forward to working with RYZE’s leadership to guide its corporate strategy and continue to build out its leading claims platform.”
