AETHOS Consulting Group Expands Expertise With Outsourced Risk Management Consulting

Embarking upon an era of expansion of hospitality advisory services AETHOS Consulting Group, renowned specialists in advisory and executive search for C-Suite positions in the lodging, gaming, and restaurant arenas, has now secured a strategic partnership with a leading risk management firm.

AETHOS Consulting Group Managing Director and CEO Keith Kefgen announced that the new outsourced risk management practice “takes a long-term approach to helping our clients cost-effectively manage their unique risk profile.”

In partnership with Premier Risk Management, AETHOS will serve as the outsourced risk manager for mid-sized companies that typically do not have the resources to bring this function in-house.

“Risk Management is an integral component of every business,” adds Kefgen. “All segments of the hospitality industry are extremely vulnerable to a multitude of risks including liability, health and safety issues, employment law, and client data protection concerns. We want our clients to optimize risk management, while minimizing costs.”

“Risk and solutions to risk and exposures have become very dynamic and complex. Outsourced risk management consulting for lodging and restaurant companies is a service that is critically needed for the hospitality industry, ” shares R. Scott Wolff, CIC, CRIS, president and founder of Premier Risk Management. “We act as an advocate in all matters of insurance and help minimize risk and the cost of risk mitigation.”

Premier Risk Management is comprised of seasoned insurance and risk management consultants, possessing a range of expertise regarding insurance coverage detail, risk management claims handling, contract analysis, and insurance program management. Wolff himself brings 30+ years of operations experience including work in product development, claims, and underwriting. Wolff is also the author of An Executive’s Guide to Risk Management and Insurance – Reduce the Risk/Boost Your Bottom Line – a book written for executives, CEOs, CFOs, Controllers, COOs, VPs, board members, and business owners who appreciate the complexity and importance of such issues and recognize the profit potential of making an intelligent risk management decision.

“We have partnered with Premier Risk Management for a number of reasons,” adds Kefgen. “Premier Risk Management does not in fact sell any insurance products, and is not associated with any insurance firm or people who sell insurance. The insurance solutions presented to clients are completely objective with no conflict of interest. Clients can rely on Premier Risk Management for unbiased and independent advice for their insurance and risk management needs.”
