About Us

Kelly Risk Management & Insurance Services, Inc. was founded by an insurance industry insider who knows how to get things done.  With well over two decades of insurance experience working behind the scenes on behalf of companies just like yours in underwriting, reinsurance, and wholesale brokerage, Brian Kelly understands the importance of building strong relationships with your broker.

Price is always going to be important, but gaining a true understanding of an insured's operation has to be paramount if the proper insurance program is to be designed,  This can only be accomplished through on-going dialog with a trusted advisor.  Insurance is not a necessary evil or just a cost of doing business but should be viewed as another avenue to enhance your bottom line through risk mitigation.

Your insurance broker should be no less important to your business than your attorney or certified public accountant.  Kelly believes this and works hard day in and day out to earn and keep that trust.


Brian Kelly, President of Kelly Risk Management & Insurance Services, Inc. in Irvine, CA has been in the commercial insurance industry for over two decades.  He works with business owners from a myriad of industries - Real Estate, Manufacturing, Entertainment, Retail, Restaurant, Professional Services, and more. 
"As a full-service brokerage firm, we are able to access on behalf of our client partners a great number of A rated carriers and their product offerings which we use to provide comprehensive coverage choices for each and every risk."

Brian, who received his degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, has developed strong industry relationships while working as a commercial multi-line underwriter, reinsurance underwriter and broker, and wholesale broker prior to entering the retail side of the business. 
"I have a thorough understanding of what it takes to get a risk properly placed, the premium is only one component although a very important one.  However, when a loss does occur, an insured needs to know that they are covered adequately and are not left holding the bag because some coverage gap exists and was never discussed."

Brian served for eight consecutive years on the Board of the California Association of Insurance Professionals (CAIP) most recently as their Vice President.  He currently serves on the Board of Governors at the Coto de Caza Golf & Racquet Club as well as on their Men's Golf Association Board.  He hosts a Couples Small Group through Saddleback Church and he has coached both soccer and baseball for numerous years in Irvine where he resides.  For recreation, Brian enjoys playing golf, working out and cycling.  However, he really loves spending time outdoors especially at the beach with his wife Margie and their two children, Danny and Christy.
