July 15, 2020

CTSI prides itself on its dedication and service as it helps Colorado counties navigate the insurance market and benefit from shared resources with the power of pooling. As part of that effort, CTSI welcomed three new staff members in June. These three new faces will help CTSI continue to maintain excellent, personalized service for its members.

New Risk Analyst

Rhonda Curran joined CTSI as a Risk Analyst. Rhonda spent 29 years at Willis Towers Waston doing actuarial and risk management. In 2016, Rhonda switched to development and fundraising for nonprofit organizations, most recently at Recovery Café Longmont. In addition to her 30 years of experience in the insurance actuarial and risk management field, Rhonda also holds a BA in economics with a concentration in statistics from the University of Connecticut as well as professional credentials as a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU), Associate in Risk Management (ARM), and Associate in Reinsurance (ARe). Rhonda is a native of Connecticut and has called Colorado home for 28 years. She is looking forward to working on a variety of projects for CTSI.

New Receptionist/Administrative Assistant

Kim Morgan is replacing Lisa Stoner, who recently moved to our Worker’s Compensation department, as the CTSI Receptionist/Administrative Assistant. Kim is a native of Colorado and has over 25 years of experience in office administration. In her role, Kim will be the voice on the phone for many CTSI members as she greets callers and directs them to the proper department. Kim is looking forward to helping CTSI continue to grow and to getting to know the CTSI membership.

New Sr. Property & Liability Claim Rep

Dylan Patterson, another Colorado native, joined CTSI from Chipotle, where he handled general liability claims for their more than 2,800 stores. Dylan has over 20 years of experience as a claims adjuster and is looking forward to handling new types of claims and getting to know the CTSI staff and membership.

What This Means for Counties

CTSI is happy to welcome our three new staff members and congratulate Lisa Stoner on her new position with the organization. CTSI is proud of our continued growth as we adapt to meet the needs of our member counties. For more information on CTSI contact at (303) 861 0507.
