Bellaire-based specialist broker recognized as industry elite performer

Select Risk Services’ Keith Ross has made this year’s Insurance Business America Top Specialist Brokers list

Online PR News – 09-February-2021 – Denver, CO – A Bellaire-based insurance professional has just been recognized in a prestigious list of the go-to experts for hard-to-place and niche markets.

Select Risk Services’ Keith Ross has been included in the annual Top Specialist Brokers report released by Insurance Business America magazine, spotlighting the 42 brokers who have mastered niche markets to deliver coverage for hard-to-place risks.

In the mid-2000s, Ross was focusing on retail producing, commercial P&C and wholesale surplus lines, eventually establishing himself as a casualty-driven broker specializing in oil and gas. From 2010 to 2012, Ross juggled fulltime brokering while working toward his MBA. Ultimately, his persistence paid off in 2018 when he became the CEO of newly launched Select Risk Services. This past year, the company generated revenue in the seven figures and premium in the eight figures and is on pace to continue significant growth in 2021. “I think what differentiates me is my work ethic,” Ross says. “I make sure to respond to every email and phone call, no matter the importance; that one missed call or email could be the winning ticket on a new piece of business for our agents and underwriters.”

“In an age of ongoing uncertainty, specialist brokers are vital. Whether it’s delivering communicable disease coverage and cyber policies for the COVID-19 era, flood and environmental insurance to counter the growing climate risk, or even terrorism protection to hedge against the unthinkable, these specialists play an important role in protecting insureds from unique risks,” says the Insurance Business team. “The 42 standout specialist brokers on this year’s list have been chosen by their agent partners and colleagues based on their insights and expertise, which they use to help retail agents and their clients acquire the coverage they need. Always staying one step ahead of the competition in their mastery of their niche markets, these brokers help ensure agents’ clients have the proper coverage for current and future risks.”
