Irvine, California-based Alliant Insurance Services says it hired Logan Johnston as its vice president within its Alliant Americas division.
Alliant says Johnston, based in Tampa, will use his industry knowledge to provide integrated risk and insurance solutions to a portfolio of clients across the Southeast. Alliant, according to its website, has $3.7 billion in revenue; $34.9 billion in premiums; and more than 100 offices.
The firm says Johnston joins Alliant "with a broad expertise encompassing insurance, consulting, risk management and sales management. He has experience servicing both for-profit and nonprofit clients and will focus on providing risk mitigation strategies and solutions that increase organizational efficiencies and drive long-term growth."
"Logan's keen understanding of regional market dynamics will help us continue to expand our presence in Florida and across the Southeast," says Bob Bennetsen, Alliant executive vice president and senior managing director, in the statement.
Prior to joining Alliant, Johnston was a sales executive with a global insurance brokerage and consulting firm, where he also held a prior position as benefits client service and technology manager, Alliant says.
Alliant is a large-scale distributor of diversified insurance products and services. It says it operates through a network of specialized national platforms and local offices.
Alliant officials say as the business of managing risk is getting more complex, the firm is meeting this complexity not with more layers of management, "but with more creativity and agility."
