Welcome to The Risk Recon

brian-smithWelcome to The Risk Recon.  If you were looking to uncover answers to your insurance related questions, you have landed in the right place.  As a commercial insurance broker, I decided to develop a program that gives you an opportunity to learn more about business risks through my blogs, all of which are based on a comprehensive method of discovery and investigation.

Considered BEFORE the sales cycle of typical insurance renewals, Risk Reconnaissance promotes the highest level of confidence by realizing risk practices and uncovering potential areas of loss that are routinely missed by insurance professionals. was developed with the intent of assisting business leaders on the improved understanding of risk management and insurance through dialogue, collaboration, and improved communication by means of routine blogging and the sharing of ideas.

My risk management philosophy is based on four key areas: risk identification, client-based operational awareness, claims reduction, and risk reduction/loss control techniques. Employing these actions solve complex insurance issues by means of the Risk Reconnaissance Program; a program centered on client interviews, loss and claims analysis, operational/site assessments, insurance program reviews, and a comprehensive service plan.

Defense Base Act Insurance, Service Contract Act – Expertise

As a former U.S. Army Officer, I have dedicated a significant portion of my career on developing a keen awareness in the area of Government Contracting as I clearly understand the impact of civilian services to the military.  Due to the nature of the work involved, Government Contractors represent a broad spectrum of risks all tied together by their common funding source, contract dollars.  Understanding the nuances of contractual liability and the impact of fringe wages to the bottom line, I have geared my risk management practice toward increased clarity and improved cash flow to my clients.

Specialty Lines of insurance reviews include: Defense Base Act, Kidnap & Ransom, Accidental Death & Dismemberment, Repatriation, Travel Accident, Worldwide Medical and Foreign Voluntary Workers’ Compensation.

As your business changes and grows, so too will the needs of your insurance and risk management program. As the author and creator of and, I am eager to ensure your company is pointed in the right risk management direction.  Let me know if I can help.
