Helio hires Jesse Olsen as COO

Risk and insurance services company Helio has appointed Jesse Olsen as its chief operating officer.

Captive Intelligence reported the launch of Helio in March, when experienced captive operator Heather McClure was appointed general counsel and chief risk officer.

Olsen joins after leaving Strategic Risk Solutions in November, where he was a managing director. Prior to SRS he was practice leader of Lockton’s Texas specialty risk services.

“We are thrilled to have Jesse join Helio,” said Heather McClure, general counsel & chief risk officer at Helio.

“We crossed paths many times on the speaking and teaching circuit over the years. It is clear to me Jesse shares a similar vision for delivering best-in-class service and consulting to current and prospective captive owners.”

Helio currently has offices in Dallas, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Kansas City.

“As I begin this fantastic new role, I have many reasons to be thankful,” Olsen said.

“Foremost are relationships with colleagues who provide extraordinary opportunities to learn.”

Olsen said there is “incredible momentum” as captive utilisation and related risk financing strategies continue to disrupt “conventional paradigms” of how to manage risk.
