Toronto, Ontario July 12, 2012 – Sutton Special Risk, a leading accident and health insurance provider, has announced the formation of Sutton Special Risk America, and the opening of their New York office at 810 Seventh Avenue.
“Sutton Special Risk has been active in the U.S. marketplace since our inception in 1978. Our U.S. business has continued to evolve and grow and, as a result, has necessitated the launch of Sutton Special Risk America to better serve our existing U.S. clients,” said Greg Sutton, President and CEO of Sutton Special Risk. “It will also enable us to further expand our distribution and product lines throughout the United States.”
To spearhead the expansion plans of Sutton Special Risk America, the company has appointed Scott Lapp to lead business development. “Scott will be responsible for the sales and marketing of all of the Sutton Special Risk product lines,” explained Greg Sutton.
Prior to joining Sutton, Scott Lapp was with Gallagher Benefit Services in Philadelphia where he was responsible for selling Health & Welfare lines as well as ancillary lines and voluntary benefits. “We’re excited to add Scott to Sutton Special Risk. His wealth of industry experience and understanding of the U.S. market will be a great asset to our organization and our expansion plans going forward,” Greg Sutton remarked.
