IOA Acquires PMIS & Forms Medical Malpractice Division

Public Announcement | November 21, 2014

Professional Medical Insurance Services, INC. officially joined the IOA family on November 3, 2014. The PMIS team will join IOA as the Medical Malpractice Division. With 8 locations across the nation, the team already serves clients in many states and with IOA’s resources will continue to expand its specialty footprint.

“We feel that the people, culture and nationwide resources of IOA are a natural fit to help our team grow and deliver an even better service to current and future clients”, said William J. Reese.

Reese founded PMIS (est. in 1988) in response to the need for a brokerage that could provide the highest level of expertise in healthcare related risks, while at the same time providing a customer driven service environment. Since its beginning, PMIS has become recognized in the insurance marketplace for its integrity and professionalism. Prior to forming PMIS, Reese served as the President of Healthcare Insurance Services and joined the agency in 1988. In this capacity, he was instrumental in developing the agency into the largest writer of professional liability for emergency department contract groups building the book to $70,000,000 in premium volume. Reese then transformed the agency from a single product niche for emergency department groups to providing comprehensive products for all of the healthcare industry. During his tenure, he was responsible for the #24 spot of the top 100 insurance brokers in 1996 by growing the book to over $300,000,000 in premium volume. While at HIS, Reese developed and maintained loyal insurance relationships (affiliations, connections), which helped to maintain greater than 90% client retention. He created exclusive broker relationships with the major national insurance carriers – e.g., CNA, AIG, Reliance, Zurich. He maintains strong ties to these companies today. Reese has assembled a team of experts in this niche industry across the country to provide medical professionals with all necessary lines of property/casualty coverage, employee and individual benefits and alternative risk product evaluations and set-ups.

“In a changing marketplace the PMIS team joining IOA will create another tremendous resource of expertise for our advocates”, said John Ritenour, Chairman and Founder of IOA.

IOA is excited to bring an organization onboard that prides itself on its level of service. We invite you to engage our people, discover what we do, grow your business and experience a service you never want to leave.
