York Risk Services CEO to leave; replacement named

York Risk Services Group announced Wednesday that CEO and President Rick Taketa is leaving the Parsippany-based claims and risk management company, effective Sept. 1.

Thomas W. Warsop III will continue as chairman and assume the role of CEO and president.

Warsop joined York as chairman of the board in 2017 after having served as CEO of The Warranty Group. Before that, he was group vice president of Fiserv as well as a senior executive at Electronic Data Systems Corp.

“I want to thank Rick for his critical contributions to York over the last 14 years. He will be missed,” Warsop said. “It’s an exciting time at York, as we position ourselves to better serve our clients as the leading risk solutions provider. Our clients are the center of our business model and we’re focused on delivering greater value to them through integrated and customized risk solutions to accomplish our mission of reducing risk and getting people and organizations back to health, work and productivity. We are equally focused on continuing to build our collaborative culture for our global team and our technical infrastructure enabling our data-driven process, to continue predicting tomorrow’s risk.”

“York is a great organization with wonderful people and clients. I know York will continue to grow under Tom’s leadership, alongside the many dedicated people at York,” Taketa said.
