EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants, a retail property, casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, today announced the addition of Kevin Grady and Christian Florence, both recognized experts in utilizing rigorous data analyses, benchmarking, and key performance metrics to reduce the total cost of risk.

Grady and Florence will join as Managing Principals and together with current EPIC Managing Principals Maurice Edwards and Jim Bacon (who recently joined EPIC through its Integro USA acquisition) will be responsible for leveraging data analytics to design and execute cost containment strategies that are proven to improve year-over-year outcomes and reduce the total cost of risk for EPIC clients.
