CHICAGO November 8, 2013 – Cynosure Risk Advisors LLC (CRA,, a national consulting firm specializing in corporate risk management, corporate insurance counseling and health care counseling, announced today the recent appointments of Candice D. Jones, J.D. and Shannon R. Strasser, J.D., M.B.A. to its leadership team.


Candice D. Jones, Director of Health Care Consulting, is an experienced health care policy and compliance professional.  Prior to joining CRA, Candice was a senior consultant for a global HR consulting firm.  In this position, she served as a federal and state legislative and regulatory subject matter expert on a range of health care issues.  In addition, Candice previously served as Co-Director of Communications and Counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Ways and Means and as Legislative Counsel in the Council of the District of Columbia.


Candice states “In the last few years, we have witnessed significant federal and state legislative and regulatory developments in health care.  It is vitally important that businesses stay abreast of these changes.  I look forward to working with CRA to help businesses stay up-to-date and engaged as they make health care decisions for their employees.”


Prior to joining CRA Shannon R. Strasser, Senior Risk Management Consultant, was an attorney in the West Palm Beach office of a nationwide law firm where she focused her practice in the defense of a diverse group of corporate clients.  Shannon gained valuable experience into the operational and financial complexities of businesses while working at a manufacturing company in Tampa, Florida and in her complex legal practice.


Shannon adds “My mission at CRA is to help business owners protect their dreams by helping them manage risks, reduce costs, and generate growth opportunities.  No company ever wants to believe that its ship will hit a hidden iceberg, but having a comprehensive risk management strategy will significantly decrease the likelihood of unforeseen disasters, significantly minimize the impact of any risk failures and offer assurance to the company’s stakeholders that it is engaging in best practices.”


CRA’s Founder and CEO Tracy A. Campbell states “I am absolutely thrilled that Candice and Shannon have joined the CRA team.  Candice brings a tremendous wealth of passion and real-world experience as our new Director of Health Care Consulting at a time when most businesses are laser-focused on the impact of health care reform on their bottom lines.  Shannon, as our new Senior Risk Management Consultant, brings strong business acumen and innovative risk strategies that will help our clients steer clear of hidden dangers.”


CRA specializes in helping corporate executives control costs and operate more efficiently by effectively managing risks and using insurance to their advantage.  CRA also counsels clients on the quickly-evolving landscape of health care reform.  It strives to make certain that their clients have the right risk strategies, insurance coverage and health care counseling to protect their corporate assets – before they need it.
