Corporate Risk Management, Inc., celebrated its 40th anniversary as an insurance consulting & broking firm on January 9 at Gibson’s Oak Brook in Ill. CRM was founded by CEO Robert A. Wilson on January 1, 1979 in Hinsdale, Ill. As consultants, CRM advised a variety of businesses on creating risk management programs, eliminating gaps in coverage and reducing premiums. In 1990, CRM began providing insurance to the tradeshow industry in Chicago and quickly expanded across the country.
The company, currently located in Westmont, Ill., moved into a new building that was constructed in October 2001. President Rob Wilson and Executive Vice President Scott Wilson oversee operations and provide insurance and HR solutions to clients of all sizes.
Wilson explains, “Our 40th anniversary was a great opportunity to celebrate the founding of CRM with our clients, friends, family and team. My dad had a vision in 1979 to create a firm dedicated to helping businesses reduce their insurance costs and improve coverage. CRM led to the creation of Employco USA which provides payroll, workers’ compensation, employee benefits and HR support. Our combined businesses proudly serve more than 125 tradeshow clients across the country.”
Based in Westmont, Ill., with clients across the U.S., Corporate Risk Management, Inc. along with its sister company, Employco USA, provide insurance and HR solutions for businesses. With more than 20 years of experience in the tradeshow industry, they help businesses streamline their operations, lower labor costs and provide the ability to seamlessly expand their reach into countless cities across the U.S.–without the cost of new union agreements or being forced to fret over payroll management and labor calls.
