Client Service Manager
At Gallagher, we have experts with years of experience designing pools and cooperatives for a range of public sector clients. As a public sector organization you are uniquely situated to take advantage of a risk management pool.
An insurance pool is a multiple-member, risk-sharing arrangement where government organizations pool their funds together to finance an exposure, liability, risk or some combination of the three. Rather than purchasing insurance, employee benefits and risk management services through traditional insurance providers, pools and cooperatives share funds to procure services and insurance as a group.
As the LIRA program administrator, our team will provide risk assessment and loss control services, exposure data management, cost allocation, claims review, loss review, third-party claims administration, issuing certificates of insurance and contract review, and much more.

Partnering with clients to prevent workplace injuries not only prevents loss and unnecessary expense, but preserves the pledge you make to your employees to provide them with a safe workplace. The safety and loss control programs offered by Risk Control Consulting Services are designed with these factors in mind.
For more than four decades, RCCS, a division of Gallagher Bassett, has helped organizations of all types develop and maintain successful safety and risk control programs. Our mission is to provide you with timely delivery of quality consulting services that result in a tailored program that aggressively manages workers' compensation and related loss costs, improves operational efficiency, and most importantly, affords you the opportunity to focus on your first priority – your library.
