Risk Strategies snaps up employee benefits duo
Risk Strategies Company has welcomed Kate Genovese and Pauline Sobelman to its employee benefits practice group.

Sobelman joins as senior vice president, while Genovese will serve as senior strategic consultant. Both will be based in the company’s New York offices.

The duo brings knowledge in helping businesses overcome challenges in offering packages as new federal and state technology and regulatory changes take effect.

Genovese will support the company’s benefits practice developing financial strategies for large primarily self-funded clients.

Sobelman’s practice work focuses on large and complex middle-market employers, with a variety of organisation types and industries.

John Greenbaum, national leader of Risk’s employee benefits practice group, said: “Today’s unprecedented change and uncertainty in employee benefits underscores the need for proven expertise.”

He added: “Kate Genovese and Pauline Sobelman are a perfect fit for Risk Strategies’s expertise-driven approach to client service, and we are thrilled to have them join.”
