Leaders who care
Constellation Senior Leadership
Ryan Crawford, FCAS, CPCU, MAAA
VP, Underwriting and Chief Actuary
“We think about how this space could be different and then we act on it. It’s not about how things have been done; it’s about what does the client need and how would they like it.”
Ryan Crawford brings over 15 years of actuarial and underwriting experience to Constellation, having joined the company in 2017. The field of underwriting and actuarial science can seem mysterious to the average person—but basically, Ryan and his teams tailor products to the specific situations of customers, determine which professionals/facilities to insure at what terms/price, stay ahead of industry changes, and ensure enough money is set aside to pay claims in the future.
In short, the work Ryan and his teams do helps Constellation grow profitably while ensuring that customers have protections in place for their businesses and health care teams. In addition, Ryan serves on the partners and scale team (M&A) and helps the claim team with effective loss payments.
As for his spare time, it’s mostly spent with his wife and two boys, biking around the Twin Cities constantly yelling, “Stay to the right, kids!” Plus, carpooling to soccer practice and hiking the great parks in Minnesota when it’s not minus 15 degrees out. He and his family love traveling for vacations, but at the same time, there’s nothing better, he says, than a campfire and beverages with those we know and love best.
