Ryan Montes has pulled off some amazing feats for his clients, including securing a flat renewal just days after a seven-figure loss, all while he was recovering from an emergency appendectomy.

But what sets him apart from his peers is his dedication to education.

Not every company has a dedicated risk manager. The person in charge of managing the insurance program is often wearing multiple hats, and Montes takes the time to help his client understand the nuts and bolts of their exposures and the coverages available to insure them.

“I had a bit of a learning curve in this position and had to get up to speed in a very short period of time,” said the director of employee health at a large financial company.

“Ryan suggested we do a ‘workers’ compensation 101’ session for me and my staff, as well as our partners in legal, and brought forth a team of experts and a presentation that we all found very valuable.

“I have never had a broker or any other vendor do something like that for me before, and so appreciated that he would offer it and put so much effort into making it meaningful for us.”

Additionally, Montes makes time to mentor the next generation of insurance professionals.

“He is very involved in the USC Risk Management program acting as an advisor to the students, encouraging the next wave of ‘Power Brokers’ to choose the insurance business. He is a broker who is very giving of his time to others,” said one corporate risk manager.
