Risk Strategies has welcomed Amy M. Landry as its property loss-control engineer. Ms. Landry’s addition is part of the insurance brokerage and risk management firm’s expansion of its loss-control capabilities to offer clients expert insight on ways to prevent costly claims that interrupt operations.
“For many types of businesses, effective risk management is more than a great insurance coverage plan,” said Mike Vitulli, senior vice president with Risk Strategies Company. “Amy’s expertise will be invaluable for clients seeking practical ways to protect their assets, reduce claims, keep employees safe and insurance costs low.”
A certified fire protection specialist (CFPS) who has previously worked as a consultant in risk engineering for both FM Global Insurance Company and AXA Matrix Risk Consultants, Landry brings a wide range of experience working with clients to identify potential risks to their business operations and employee safety, as well as effective ways to mitigate those issues.
Ms. Landry will be based in Risk Strategies’ Boston office
An engineering graduate of the University of New Haven, Ms. Landry will be based in Risk Strategies’ Boston office. She will be available, however, for Risk Strategies’ national client base.
Ms. Landry previous work experience includes identifying, evaluating and quantifying a variety of hazards — from dust and fire to chemicals and wind, as well as determining required and appropriate protections and countermeasures. In addition, she has experience in a wide range of industry and settings.
In her new role at Risk Strategies, Ms. Landry will be employing her work experience and education in order to help the firm’s clients understand how preemptive preparations in a cleint company’s operations and procedures can help to control insurance costs as well as increasing better insurance coverages in the future.
“Businesses understand that a claim typically means a costly interruption and an increase in cost of risk,” said Landry. “I’m excited about helping these organizations better implement pragmatic practices to avoid those issues and more,” she added.
The firm will also employ Landry to assist with post-loss cause and origin investigations and help drive Risk Strategies’ natural catastrophe modeling initiatives.
