Today, Keystone, the fourth largest participant-owned insurance agency network in the nation, announced its intention to fully acquire the member shares of East Cost Risk Management (ECRM), a safety, HR, and risk management firm, to become its full-time risk management division.

“With over 60 specialists in Risk Management, HR, and Safety Consultation, the ECRM staff will further enhance Keystone’s mission to employ strategies that mitigate risk through process, technology, and training, regardless of location. The name East Coast Risk Management served us in our infancy, but Keystone’s network has grown – and so have we,” explained ECRM President Mike Lukart. “Our expertise will enhance and round out Keystone’s menu of services and increase our service staff for agents across our network to over 200.”

“East Coast Risk Management is already fully immersed in working with our agents, and this integration has been in the works for a long time,” stated Keystone President and CEO, David E. Boedker. “The only thing that will change is the name – we’re all one: Keystone.”
