Mike Smith, CEO of AIS, had this to say about the new venture. “Cannabis and hemp are rapid growth markets as more states legalize it recreationally and medically. AMGH was focused on entering the market; after considerable search efforts, we have partnered with FSI, as they bring the necessary industry and insurance knowledge for us to successfully write businesses and professionals in the cannabis and hemp industries. Considering recent legislation and state ratifications, we wanted to be well positioned in this industry. We expect our partnership to be fruitful for everyone.”

Joining AIS from FSI are Michael Peters (Founder/CEO) and John Pokryfki (Co-founder/Broker). In Michael’s new hybrid capacity, he will oversee management at FSI , while serving as Vice President for AIS’ cannabis division. Prior to founding FSI, Michael spent his professional career in insurance working for MedPro Group and Risk Placement Services. John Pokryfki helped found FSI after spending over 20 years in the insurance field including 13 years as a regional AVP with MedPro Group. John will spearhead direct sales efforts for cannabis professionals (lawyers, accountants, real estate brokers, etc.) and cannabis and hemp businesses.
