Andres Franzetti Named as President and COO in Order to Drive Continued Growth
Washington, DC, November 28, 2018 – Risk Cooperative, an innovative risk and insurance advisory firm and coverholder at Lloyd’s, announces key executive appointments and governance changes in order to support accelerated growth. Andres Franzetti, one of Risk Cooperative’s co-founders and former head of strategy, is named as President and Chief Operating Officer with full strategic and operational accountability. Dante Disparte, Risk Cooperative’s founder, will transition to chairman and CEO leading long-range strategy. Noah Skillin also one of the company’s co-founders will serve as the company’s Chief Risk Officer responsible for overall enterprise risk management and Les Williams will continue to serve as the company’s Chief Revenue Officer leading overall sales and channel strategy.
This new structure, rounding out the firm’s fourth anniversary, positions Risk Cooperative for continued growth and operational excellence in 2019 and beyond. This organizational change signals that Risk Cooperative has exited the startup phase, and will continue anchoring key business lines, including risk advisory, insurance brokerage and RC Labs, where advanced prototyping is taking place with insurance and technology aimed at identifying breakthroughs in risk, readiness and resilience. Similarly, this new organizational design emphasizes our recently announced strategic partnership with RCM&D.
“Andres Franzetti is one of the most capable leaders in the risk and insurance industry who has contributed immeasurably to Risk Cooperative’s success over the years. Recognizing the accelerated pace of our growth, along with a growing team and strategic partnerships calls for evolved design, strategy and governance. I’m as confident as ever in our market-changing firm and honored to hand Andres the reins, while I continue to guide the firm’s spirit and long-term prospects,” said Dante Disparte, Risk Cooperative’s chairman and CEO.
“I’m humbled by the opportunity to lead Risk Cooperative as we enter our fifth year of trade. We have assembled one of the most talented and diverse teams in the insurance and risk management industries, not to mention our customers and partners who rely on us for innovative approaches to resilience in an increasingly unpredictable world. Now more than ever, risk and insurance need to become more than a cost of doing business. We are committed to building on that legacy and expanding our reach,” added Andres Franzetti, Risk Cooperative’s President and COO.
