As Executive Director, Scott will be responsible for recruiting large commercial insurance clients to RMC’s Property & Casualty division, as well as developing relationships with new insurance carriers and oversight of the division. His goal is to deliver the best possible insurance coverage to clients based on traditional and alternative insurance market options.

Upon joining RMC Group, Scott commented, “After years of working for the alphabet shops, RMC Group is a breath of fresh air. From an active P&C Division to owning its own reinsurance company to having the very best middle market Captive Manager, RMC Group is well positioned for success.  In addition, with a 45-year history of being a closely held family firm, we can do whatever the big publicly traded shops do without putting investors interests before our clients.”

Scott continued, “We report to our clients, not shareholders who are only interested in quarterly profits. We are not only a national company, but an international company as well with a London office. I truly believe RMC Group is the only industry household name that isn’t…yet!”

Scott’s Experience

Scott brings 35 years of experience as a Strategic Advisor to both Middle Market and Multi-National Companies to RMC. Scott prides himself on his accessibility to his clients and the ability to see insurance from his clients’ perspective.  His in-depth knowledge of Property and Casualty insurance products and outstanding insurance carrier relationships will make him an important member of RMC Group.

Scott is a licensed insurance agent in the state of Pennsylvania, and a graduate of Rutgers University and Whittier Law School. Scott has worked for Marsh & McLennan, Aon, and World Insurance Associates. He has increased market share in every insurance vertical he has focused on. His clients do not leave, and he can boast a 96% retention rate over a long career.

Ray Ankner, President & CEO of RMC Group, commented, “Scott is a proven Property & Casualty expert with a number of years’ experience in the industry. He recognizes the need for innovative solutions, understands the markets, and puts his clients first.”

Ray continued, “Scott’s experience will be invaluable to drive business to our Property & Casualty division, our other divisions, and to build on our reputation as a leader in risk management.”

Roxana Salem to Retire From PlanGen

PlanGen, a member of the RMC Group, announces that Roxana Salem, Senior Report Developer, will retire effective April 3, 2020.

Roxana has been with PlanGen since 2008. For over a decade, Roxana has been an integral part of the PlanGen team, working closely with the President of PlanGen to develop and work on quality control for the various custom report applications that produce comprehensive plan design illustrations, executive summaries, and plan comparisons for pension retirement plans.

Roxana has big plans for her retirement. She has been an avid student of genealogy and has provided amateur search services for individuals. After retiring, she plans to begin the process of attaining professional Board Certification in order to meet the rigorous standards required to access the repositories of courthouses, libraries, and archives.

Roxana is also a licensed falconer and will now have the time to engage in the practice.  She may pursue trapping an immature hawk in the fall, caring for it and training it over the winter and releasing it in the spring.  This will markedly improve the young raptor’s survival rate into adulthood. She will also have a lot more time to take long walks in the woods with her dog, a Borzoi named Varushka.

“Roxana has been an invaluable asset to PlanGen over the years,” said Todd Trzaskos. “She has been a wonderful co-worker offering good-humored skepticism and witty conversation. We truly will miss her.  Even though we may be able to call on her for consulting now and again, we realize that she has great plans for her time away from the computer screen, and we wish her the best in her well-deserved retirement.”

On behalf of RMC Group, we congratulate Roxana on her achievements throughout her career and wish her the best of luck in retirement. For more information about PlanGen, click here.
