Todd has a diverse knowledge with unique experiences.  From working with clients across the country to having background knowledge in various organizational industries, he’s well-equipped to handle any client’s healthcare need…and happy to do it!

Todd is the Director of Healthcare and In-Home Care Risk Services for SilverStone Group, providing consulting services to regional and national firms.

These experiences, along with having a wife who is a doctor, provide Todd with a broad range of expertise and unique perspective that he brings to SilverStone Group clients who provide care for patients.

Todd enjoys working at SilverStone Group for the same reasons he was a client of theirs before joining the firm. He believes it is extraordinary of SilverStone Group to invest in people with industry and background experiences outside of insurance who can be a guide for our clients. Todd knows our Associates are truly risk managers and not insurance sales people. He knows first-hand what a huge benefit it is to the clients to have a true sense of what is affecting clients now, and may into the future so we are able to help plan and manage risk for our clients and not simply purchase insurance. With SilverStone Group’s specialized internal talent, they are able to become an outsourced advisor that can address a myriad clients’ needs, in a very cost effective way that truly adds value. Todd loves bringing the resources and experience to a client in order to become the trusted advisor he strives to be.
