SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Aug. 19, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants, a retail property, casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, announced today that Bob Baldauf has joined the firm as a property & casualty insurance broker/producer for EPIC's Risk Solutions team based in Stamford, Conn.
Baldauf will be responsible for new business development and the design and management of insurance and risk management programs for his clients. As he has throughout his career, Baldauf will specialize in insurance brokerage and risk management consulting. He will report to Steve Levene, Executive Vice President of EPIC's Risk Solutions team in Stamford, Conn.
Baldauf joins EPIC after launching and growing a risk management consulting practice from the ground up, which he started in 2011, serving as Managing Principal. His firm specialized in serving a diverse client base, including middle and large middle market companies in private equity, manufacturing and a variety of other industries. In addition to helping clients navigate traditional property & casualty risk management challenges, Baldauf also provided guidance and expertise on political risk, kidnap and ransom, supply chain and management liability strategies.
As one of the nation's fastest growing private insurance brokerage firms, EPIC has been on an aggressive national growth trajectory, successfully competing against the large, institutional brokers with an entrepreneurial, client-focused business model. Since The Carlyle Group became the firm's major investment partner in December 2013, EPIC has completed eight strategic acquisitions/purchases, adding more than 300 employees in 12 new locations across the country and building revenues from roughly $80 million to estimated run rate revenues of almost $200 million - a 150 percent increase.
"Bob developed very strong client relationships in the past and these clients are excited that Bob has joined EPIC - a place where they can do business with both Bob and our dynamic growing team," said EPIC's Steve Levene. "His principles and expertise are extremely well aligned with EPIC's core values of service excellence and client advocacy. We are excited to have Bob join our growing operations here in the East."
Baldauf is a graduate of Montclair State University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), in Political Science. He also attended Auburn University where he studied Business Administration, working towards an MBA.
