Glenn LinvillePrincipal Consultant
Risk management can have a huge impact on reducing the total cost of risk and enhancing the reputation of any organization. I’ve seen the positive results it can generate for cost and quality control and I get a lot of satisfaction from working with clients, their employees, customers, contractors and vendors to create risk management programs that protect their resources and provide the stability needed for growth.
I first started out in this business as a claim adjuster in Upstate New York, learning how to handle serious bodily injury and property damage claims while balancing the interests of a national insurance company with the concerns of injured parties and their attorneys. From there, I managed large claim frequencies in cities including Cincinnati and Pittsburgh and then worked as an insurance producer balancing the interests of national insurance brokers with the concerns of their clients. I found coverage and negotiated settlements benefiting clients in matters such as toxic tort and product defect claims that were thought to be difficult if not impossible.
All of that corporate experience eventually gave me the expertise to work as a consultant, starting up, administering and managing claims incurred in a self-insured program for liability and property subrogation claims. Today, my goal for every client is for them to understand the importance of risk management and the benefit of a highly trained eye for identifying unusual and common business risks and the knowledge it takes to manage their total cost of risk.
I spend a lot of time with my family and grandchildren — I’m lucky that they live within walking distance. As for my favorite pastimes, they include getting out on the golf course, going for 20 mile bike rides, Cincinnati Reds or Bengals games, and vacation road trips with my spouse of 50 years.
