Surety & Fidelity Association of America Appoints New President & CEO

The Surety & Fidelity Association of America (SFAA) has appointed Ryan C. Work as its new President and Chief Executive Officer. Work succeeds the previous leadership after the organization conducted ‘an extensive search,’ according to Robert Murray, SFAA Board Chairman.

Murray expressed confidence in Work’s ability to lead the association successfully, citing his ‘in-depth trade association management experience and background in developing and managing strategic outreach and policy programs before Congress, the Administration, and various federal and state regulatory agencies.’

Prior to joining SFAA, Work served as Senior Vice President of Government Relations at the Self-Insurance Institute of America (SIIA), where he advocated on self-insurance, stop-loss, and captive insurance matters. He has also held senior government affairs roles at S&P Global, representing major brands like Standard & Poor’s and BusinessWeek.

Work’s background includes several senior staff positions on Capitol Hill, including as Legislative Director for Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the current Chair of the House Energy & Commerce Committee. He also served as Chief of Staff to former Rep. Katherine Harris of Florida.

‘I am honored to be named President and CEO and working to advance SFAA’s value to our members, expanding our advocacy efforts, and building a strong team in support of maintaining SFAA’s reputation as one of the most influential insurance legislative organizations in the states and Washington D.C.,’ Work said. He added that he looks forward to ‘collaborating with the SFAA Board, Executive Committee, membership and staff to enlist support for issues and programs critical to the industry’s success,’ according to the SFAA website.

SFAA represents over 425 member companies writing 98% of surety and fidelity bonds in the United States. The nonprofit trade group promotes the value of surety and fidelity bonding through advocacy, outreach, and education initiatives.
