Leaders who care
Constellation® Senior Leadership
Ryan Crawford, FCAS, CPCU, MAAA, ARe, MBA
Senior Vice President, Insurance Operations
“We think about how this space could be different and then we act on it. It’s not about how things have been done; it’s about what does the client need and how would they like it.”
Ryan has over 20 years of broad-based insurance and global risk transfer experience, with depth in underwriting, claim and actuarial science that he brings to his role as Senior Vice President of Insurance Operations. Ryan joined Constellation in 2017 and is currently a member of the Constellation Leadership Council. The fields of underwriting, claim, and actuarial science can seem mysterious to the average person – but basically, Ryan and his teams tailor products to the specific situations of customers, determine which professionals/facilities to insure at what terms/price, stay ahead of industry changes, fulfill the company’s promise to defend good medicine, and ensure enough money is set aside to pay claims in the future.
In short, the work Ryan and his teams do helps Constellation grow profitably while ensuring that customers have protections in place for their business and health care teams.
As for his spare time, it’s mostly spent with his wife and two boys, biking around the Twin Cities constantly yelling, “Stay to the right, kids!” Plus, carpooling to soccer practice and hiking the great parks in Minnesota when it’s not minus 15 degrees out. He and his family love traveling for vacations, but at the same time, there’s nothing better, he says, than a campfire and beverages with those we know and love best.
