Unison Risk Advisors™, Oswald Build Upon Employee Benefits Practice with Strategic Leadership Moves

Feb 23, 2023

Unison Risk Advisors and Oswald Companies are continuing their drive toward long-term, sustainable growth through leadership appointments and strategic advancements for the Employee Benefits Division.

Steffany Larkins has been hired as the president of the Employee Benefits Division at Unison Risk Advisors (the parent company of Oswald) to lead Unison’s strategic, acquisitive growth strategy. She comes with more than 30 years of experience in the insurance industry, most recently serving as executive vice president and chief revenue officer at Cleveland-based insurer Medical Mutual of Ohio.

Oswald has also made a number of leadership changes in its Employee Benefits Division to align talent with specific growth strategies. Bill Fisher will lead this charge as managing director. Bill and his accomplished leadership team will guide the company’s efforts to continue to deliver best-in-class, innovative services to existing and future clients.

Steve Baltas has been named director of national sales, in which he will lead organic growth strategies for employee benefits for all Unison Risk Advisor partner firms. He has more than 25 years of experience in the insurance industry.

“Steffany, Steve and Bill will work together to provide Unison Risk Advisors agency partners with the tools to deliver a unique client experience that simplifies the complex world of health risk and benefits. This approach will create a stronger foundation for independent firms, enabling them and Unison Risk Advisors to grow through partnership,” said Robert Klonk, chairman and chief executive officer of Unison Risk Advisors and Oswald Companies.

As Bill’s team continues to find and create innovative ways to help clients control costs while providing competitive benefits packages to their employees, Steffany will lead the conversation nationally about Unison Risk Advisors.

This strategic investment in the Employee Benefits Division supports a significant period of growth at Oswald, which joined forces with RCM&D in 2020, forming Unison Risk Advisors.
