The Keane Insurance Group is pleased to announce that it has partnered with Tom McNeill, former COO of MSMA Insurance Agency, to add a higher level of service to its team of healthcare specialists in Missouri and Kansas. The move combines the two largest players in the area’s medical malpractice insurance market. McNeill, a veteran in medical malpractice insurance sales, brings 33 years of experience in healthcare to the Keane Group. McNeill’s experience and Keane’s size and strength will provide greater service to existing physician clients as well as broaden the scope of resources available to all physicians in the region.
McNeill comes to the Keane Group after serving as an independent broker and COO of the MSMA Insurance Agency for 10 years, where he built a book of business from the ground up, growing the business from $1,000,000 in annual written premium up to over $12,000,000 annually. He assisted in the launch of the MSMA Insurance Agency and was responsible for the agency budget, managing the sales force, and servicing a book of business.
Previously McNeill served in hospital operations and management as well as physician group practice management roles. His extensive healthcare background gives him a unique understanding of the needs of both hospitals and physicians. In the last few years the Keane Group has been expanding its services to include coverage for hospitals and ACOs.
At Keane, McNeill plans to use his knowledge and experience to establish new relationships with physicians and hospitals in the Kansas City area on both sides of the Missouri/Kansas border. He hopes to be a resource in helping healthcare providers navigate the new healthcare reforms and to save practices time and money. “I’m looking forward to working with Keane and serving in this new role,” McNeill commented. “With the current changes in healthcare, this new year will bring new challenges for providers. I’m delighted to be joining the largest malpractice insurance broker in the region. With my experience and Keane’s resources I know I can help meet the needs of physicians.”
John Keane, President of the Keane Group, says that McNeill adds depth to the already experienced sales force. “I’ve always had a great deal of respect for Tom as a competitor. He is a professional in every way, and is very good at building solid relationships. We are all proud to have him on our team,” Keane remarked.
