Security First Expands, Adds Jobs at Florida HQ

Staff Writer | August 16, 2016

Security First Insurance Company has expanded and added new positions to its Ormond Beach, Fla.-based headquarters. 

“Our company is on its way to a key growth milestone of $500 million in premiums,” says Werner Kruck, COO.  “With this growth comes the need to add additional subject matter experts to our team.  We’ve formed a Regulatory Compliance Department reporting to Melissa Burt-DeVriese our chief administrative officer and chief legal counsel.”

 “We are about to embark on a new stage in the management of our company requiring oversight of our Own Risk and Solvency Assessment,” says DeVriese. “This involves a complex set of regulations. To ensure we have the bench strength necessary to efficiently position us for future growth and reporting expectations, we’ve expanded our staff. We have brought on board a new staff attorney. We have also promoted a long-term key contributor, Kathy Wood. She will lead this important initiative as vice president of corporate compliance.”  

Wood joined Security First Insurance in 2010 as a statutory accountant and was promoted to controller in 2011.  She has an extensive financial background, as well as experience in regulatory compliance. 

Charles J. Grimsley has joined Security First in the role of staff attorney. Grimsley’s career spans nearly four decades in the insurance industry in the state of Florida.  His experience ranges from serving as an attorney and bureau chief for the Florida Department of Insurance, a decade of private practice focusing on insurance, and serving as General Counsel for Florida’s largest automobile insurance company.
