Acrisure Names Kelly Conway as New Chief Human Resources Officer

Acrisure, a fast-growing fintech leader that operates a top-10 global insurance broker, today announced it has appointed Kelly Conway as the firm’s new Chief Human Resources Officer.

Conway joins Acrisure with more than two decades of experience leading global human resources business partner functions as well as talent management, recruitment, training and development. In this role, Conway will work with the firm’s executive leadership team, developing and executing strategies that impact culture and organizational performance. Conway will also focus on cross-functional development to ensure Acrisure’s operational and administrative roles are geared to support the firm’s unprecedented growth.

“Our employees and Partners have been our greatest asset. Accordingly, we have amassed a team of entrepreneurs, tech and executive talent and customer relationships that is unrivaled in financial services,” said Greg Williams, Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO at Acrisure. “We look forward to adding Kelly to the team to further develop our people strategy and take the firm to even greater heights.”

Conway’s prior roles include experience in the insurance sector and as Vice President of Human Resources for Stryker’s Global Quality and Operations group. Conway has led global teams in over eleven countries and is excited to bring this expertise to Acrisure. Conway has held positions as director of human resources and talent development at Coca-Cola Enterprises, The Arc of San Francisco and TomoTherapy.

“I am eager to start my journey at Acrisure and work with a team that is so incredibly dynamic while amplifying the groundwork that has been laid by leadership,” said Kelly Conway. “I look forward to working with the team to develop growth strategies that highlight how talent and culture are critical driving factors in Acrisure’s innovative success.”

In May, Acrisure closed $725 million in Series B-2 Preferred Equity and received a $23 billion valuation, representing a 31% increase from its last preferred equity raise in March 2021. Simultaneously, Acrisure has also maintained its industry-leading M&A pace and continues to have a pipeline that will infuse the firm with leading technological prowess.

In the middle of a historically tight labor market, Acrisure continues to expand its executive leadership. Recently, Acrisure also announced the appointment of Matthew Kirk as Executive Vice President and Head of Insurance Strategy and Execution, an example of the tremendous growth the firm is seeing.

Conway holds a B.S. in business with an emphasis in marketing from Northern Arizona University with two years of legal studies at Golden Gate Law School.
