Richard Paris-Smith will join Strategic Risk Solutions (SRS) as European client service leader, the independent insurance company manager has announced.

Mr. Paris-Smith will begin his new position on January 1, 2022, and will report to Peter Child, Guernsey managing director. He will assume responsibility for a portfolio of existing clients while working with the SRS team to support the company's growth strategy in Guernsey and Europe.

"I'm thrilled that Richard has agreed to joining SRS," Mr. Child said in a statement. "I've known him for many years, and I'm delighted to be working with him at last. His personal values of integrity, dedication, and professionalism—values shared by the SRS team—will ensure the delivery of the best possible service to our clients and represent a great fit with the independence and commitment to quality that set SRS apart."

Mr. Paris-Smith has more than 30 years' experience in the insurance industry. He spent 24 years in the London broking market, working for much of that time with a team focused on creating innovative reinsurance solutions. He moved to Guernsey in 2004 where he has gained significant experience in managing and advising captive and other specialized insurance and reinsurance vehicles.

"With Richard's appointment, we are adding yet another top-quality professional to our team," Mr. Child said. "Since officially opening our Guernsey office in February, we've attracted impressive talent who are excited about supporting the ongoing expansion of SRS's European as well as global presence in captive and commercial insurance company management and insurance-linked securities."
