Boise State’s Risk Management and Insurance Office Adds Two New Employees

Boise State’s Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) office is a small, three-person operation with a big job. Led by Kip McBean, ARM Risk Manager, the RMI office serves the university by protecting assets from the consequences of loss posed by threats from all natural and manmade hazards. In addition, they serve as a resource to provide a safe, disaster-resistant university for the entire campus.

McBean has been a member of Boise State’s staff for over seven years, backed by 20 years of experience in the insurance industry as a claim manager and insurance broker. He holds a bachelor of science in Finance from Metropolitan State University in Denver.

In addition to McBean, the RMI office boasts two new employees to campus: Kristi Murphy (Assistant Risk Manager) and Jacob Wood (Risk Management and Insurance Representative).

Murphy comes to Boise State after serving as the Risk Management Director at the Treasure Valley Family YMCA. While at the YMCA she also spent time in roles with human resources, risk, and safety. Murphy is an Eastern Washington native and a Bronco alum, earning her bachelor’s degree in human resource management from Boise State in 2015.

Wood joined the RMI office in the spring of 2016 as a student employee, moving to a permanent role in RMI Representative a year later. Prior to the RMI office, the San Francisco native spent time in the Campus Recreation Center and Bronco Shop. He is currently finishing his general business degree at Boise State.
