FOUNDER AND CEO
As a young college graduate, Andrew learned risk management from the ground up, performing hundreds of risk assessments for businesses, successful individuals and families and guiding clients to clear, simple answers about the risks they face. He earned a spot on The Addis Group’s leadership team, and helped the award-winning company grow and prosper until its sale to BB&T in 2015.
Carrying on the family tradition of client focus and innovation, Andrew launched R:sk Advisory in 2016 with the promise of hard work upfront (at no cost to you), an in-depth assessment to identify the client’s specific risks and needs, and a fully customized solution to mitigate those risks.
Clients appreciate the highly personal approach, the easy-to-understand recommendations, and Andrew and his team’s uncanny ability to “walk in their shoes.”
Andrew’s commercial clients have ranged from start-ups to established businesses across a variety of sectors, and his work with individual clients includes assessments of dwellings and properties, personal liability, and special family assets.
Born and raised in the Philadelphia area, Andrew has long been active in local nonprofit organizations. He currently serves on the boards of Kids Smiles, Surrey Services for Seniors, and Boys Latin Charter School, and he is deeply involved with other community organizations as well. A graduate of Gettysburg College and Episcopal Academy, Andrew resides in Wayne with his wife and two young children.

Lauren joined the R:SK team in January of 2019 and brought nearly a decade of commercial insurance experience.
She started on the carrier side as a summer intern and was quickly moved into an Underwriting Support role managing and assisting with international policy placement. While employed, she was selected to participate in the elite training program created for recent graduates. The program immersed her into the world of insurance and she took home first place in the final project, pitching the Head of Risk at Starwood Hotels & Resorts.
After spending a few valuable years on the carrier side, Lauren switched to the agency side. She was responsible for managing the risk programs for multi-million-dollar corporations and handled everything from daily service requests to structuring comprehensive risk programs. Lauren found a lot of joy when she was working with new clients and eventually moved into a production role which allowed her to focus on originating her own clients.
Clients love working with Lauren because she simplifies the complex insurance procurement process and helps them understand exactly what they need. She works diligently to find the best solution for the individual needs of each and every one of her clients.
Lauren was born and raised in Media, PA and graduated as Senior Class Valedictorian from York College of Pennsylvania. Lauren and her husband, Brian, reside in West Chester, PA. When not working, you can find her crafting, hiking, or at the beach.
