Burlington, VT, October 9, 2017

Green Mountain Sponsored Captive Insurance Company (“Green Mountain”), Vermont’s largest independently owned protected cell captive, has hired Chris Kramer as its Managing Director, to lead the firm’s development and expansion plans. Green Mountain is an affiliate of Strategic Risk Solutions and was formed in 2012 to provide clients and brokers with a cell facility supported by best in class captive management services in the US’s leading captive domicile.

Mr. Kramer’s career spans over 30 years in the Property, Casualty, and Alternative Risk Financing industry. A frequent contributor to publications and trade groups, he is credited with the creation of a number of captives, risk retention groups and start up profit centers for private and public enterprises. He has also been responsible for the inception and development for several cell captives, including Global Re, one of the largest cell captives in Barbados.
“I am thrilled to have an opportunity to take Green Mountain to the next level and assist clients and brokers in putting together new programs. Working with SRS and having a Vermont based facility like Green Mountain presents some exciting opportunities to do creative programs on an efficient and turn-key basis”, said Mr. Kramer.

Brady Young, CEO of SRS and a board member of Green Mountain, offered “We have been pleased with the progress we have made with Green Mountain but with Chris leading the effort on a full time basis, the owners of Green Mountain are confident we will see significant growth in several areas including medical stop loss captives, traditional single parent programs and agency captives now that these captives can be formed in Vermont”.

According to Kramer, “Green Mountain is not just another rent-a-captive facility. Together with the team of captive experts at SRS, Green Mountain works collaboratively with our clients and their brokers to provide feasibility studies, implementation and ongoing management services. In addition, Green Mountain is domiciled in Vermont, the “gold standard” in captive regulation for those clients that want an independently owned onshore cell captive facility to manage their risk.”

More information, including applications and how to use captives for employee benefits, commercial insurance or program business, can be found on the Green Mountain website.
