Dan joined IMA as Director of Professional Services Practice in 2019 to lead the Professional Services Practice across all markets. Dan works to help clients in the design, construction, legal and other industries manage complex professional liability and property and casualty risks inherent to their businesses. He is passionate about providing best-in-class service to his clients and maintaining solid relationships with the underwriting community to advocate on behalf of those clients. His team is responsible for the negotiation and placement of insurance programs, managing the renewal process, and quarterbacking the delivery of all IMA services (claims, alternative risk finance, actuarial analysis, loss control, etc.) as needed. In addition, Dan is viewed as a strategic consultant and is frequently engaged by clients to provide guidance on their most complex endeavors. He enjoys understanding the unique elements of individual clients and/or projects and pursuing creative solutions to those challenges, whether through insurance, contractual transfer elsewhere, or alternative risk finance opportunities.
Prior to joining IMA, Dan spent 13 years working for a Top 10 brokerage firm where he led a team focused exclusively on clients with significant professional liability exposures. This included one of the world’s largest design/build EPC contractors with operations on 6 continents (ENR Top 10 Contractor), one of the nation’s largest transportation engineers (ENR Top 15 Design Firm), a large power engineer (ENR Top 15 Design Firm); and three other ENR Top 100 Contractors. On behalf of these clients, Dan pursued and implemented a never ending combination of program structures that included large deductibles, captives (group, single parent, rent-a-captive), facultative reinsurance, and fully manuscript policies, all while ensuring day-to-day services were maintained at the highest standards.
