DELRAY BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tower MSA Partners has announced that Brian J. Gannon, MBA, ARM is its new Senior Vice President of Business Development. A member of Tower’s senior leadership team, he pursues new business opportunities, works with risk management teams to establish effective, proactive Medicare Secondary Payer compliance programs, and demonstrates Tower’s aggressive cost-saving solutions to insurance carriers, employers and third-party administrators in order to facilitate claim closures.
Most recently, Gannon was a consultant for Marsh’s Claims Inventory Workout group, where he worked with adjusters and attorneys to implement claim closure and liability reduction programs.
“One thing that continually blocks claims closure is the abundance of issues related to MSAs, especially excessive allocations, delays or the lack of a viable plan to carry the claim through settlement and closure,” Gannon said. “Tower’s integrated clinical interventions, including physician follow up to ascertain that treatment referenced in the medical records is still occurring, reduces allocations and smooths the path to settlement.”
Gannon has nearly 25 years of sales, account management and case management experience in the workers’ compensation, financial services, and insurance industries. “With strong roots in case management, workers’ compensation and risk with such companies as Marsh, Healthcare Solutions, Broadspire, and Sedgwick, Brian understands the challenges payers face when settling claims,” said Tower CEO Rita Wilson. “As someone who recognizes the value of business partnerships that yield clear, measurable results, he is the perfect addition to Tower’s executive team.”
Gannon earned his Master of Business Administration degree in Finance and Marketing from the University of Southern California and studied Business Administration at California State University in Northridge, California. He also holds the Associate in Risk Management (ARM) credentials.
