DALLAS, Texas (Oct. 28, 2020) – PartnerSource, the leading source for responsible alternatives to traditional workers’ compensation in Texas, recently honored with the Greenshield Award Jeffrey Strege, formerly senior director of risk management for Sysco Foods and now senior director of risk management with Academy Sports + Outdoors. The Greenshield Award is given annually at the PartnerSource Employers’ Conference to an outstanding professional who is committed to helping deliver better medical outcomes and economic development through responsible alternatives to workers’ compensation.

Strege, a resident of Houston, Texas, began his career as a claims representative with Employer’s Casualty Company. His excellent experience in risk management leaves a legacy of innovation at companies including Advance Auto Parts and Sysco Foods. As a member of the board of directors for the Association of Responsible Alternatives to Workers’ Compensation, Strege oversaw the development of the QCARE program, devoting substantial time and energy to building clarity and deserved credibility for Texas injury benefit programs that meaningfully contribute to economic growth for the State of Texas. Strege serves on the Board of Directors of the Houston Risk & Insurance Management Society (RIMS) Chapter, and was also recently selected by Risk & Insurance magazine as a “2020 Risk Allstar” award winner.
