Councill Risk Management Firm Joins PSA Insurance & Financial Services

Posted in: News

Hunt Valley, Md. – April 3, 2014 – PSA Insurance & Financial Services welcomes Councill, an independent risk management and insurance partner, to the PSA team. Councill President Nancy Councill and her eight associates bring deep specialty knowledge within the healthcare industry, with a concentrated focus on nursing homes, assisted living and independent living facilities. The newly-formed team will operate under the name PSA Healthcare Risk Solutions, and are expected to make an immediate and valuable difference to PSA’s existing and future client base.

Established in 2000, Councill is a national leader in the healthcare industry, providing property casualty insurance, third party administration for medical professional liability and general liability claims, and risk management services, including the management of workers’ compensation claims. The firm’s specialty services combine well within PSA’s existing risk management practice, broadening PSA’s national client base, and enabling the firm to work more extensively with Councill’s existing client base to offer retirement plans and employee benefits programs.

“PSA is always searching for elite talent, whether it be an individual or a sizable practice that will strengthen one or several of our concentrations,” said Managing Director, Chip Lewis. “Nancy Councill and her associates are leaders in the healthcare industry, and having them on our team will be beneficial for her clients and ours.”

Practice leader, Nancy Councill and two of her associates will be working at PSA headquarters in Hunt Valley, Md., while six others will work remotely from cities across the country. By joining PSA, Nancy Councill and her team will be able to focus exclusively on servicing their existing clients and adding new clients to their portfolio.

“As a niche company, the Councill team has grown its business on industry knowledge, reputation, referrals and results,” said Nancy Councill. “We believe PSA will be an asset to our business in several ways. The PSA brand enables us to provide clients with services not currently offered by Councill, and will enhance productivity and growth through technology, marketing and operational support.”
