INDIANAPOLIS and FORT WAYNE, Ind., Dec. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ONI Risk Partners (ONI) and its corporate parent company Prime Risk Partners announced a pair of management changes this week. Mike Gilbert, a 25-year insurance industry veteran who was most recently ONI's chief business development executive, has become its new Region President based in Fort Wayne. Gilbert takes on the role previously held by Mark Bienz, who also served as ONI's Chief Financial Officer; Bienz has been named Senior Vice-President of Financial Operations for Prime Risk Partners.
ONI Risk Partners is one of the Midwest's largest independent agencies and a former subsidiary of Old National Bank. Prime Risk Partners is among the fastest-growing and 50 largest insurance brokers in the U.S.
"Our ability to move an executive of Mike Gilbert's caliber to our Fort Wayne regional office shows that ONI continues to have a 'deep bench' of experienced professionals, now backed by the strong national platform of Prime Risk Partners," said Tom Flynn, CEO of ONI.
"Joining Prime Risk Partners was a unique opportunity to access a wider array of resources, expertise and services on behalf of our clients, while keeping the personal service they expect," noted Flynn. "Mark Bienz has earned a well-deserved senior role in Prime Risk Partners, and clients in Fort Wayne, South Bend and across Northern Indiana will have an experienced advisor with local insight in Mike Gilbert."
Gilbert brings more than a quarter-century in agency ownership, brokerage management, experience across commercial property and casualty and a proven track record in business development. He currently serves as President of the Independent Insurance Agents of Indiana, and has been recognized as "Agent of the Year" and a two-time "Director of the Year" by that group.
"I look forward to serving our clients and growing our business across Northern Indiana, building on the great relationships we enjoy today and capitalizing on the new opportunities that come with being part of Prime Risk Partners," said Gilbert, who served as ONI Risk Partners' Chief Growth and Business Development Officer before assuming his new responsibilities as Region President.
