Richard L. Flanagan II, RT Specialty
Managing director and president of RT Specialty – Orange County
Specialty: Construction and real estate
The creator and leader of RT Specialty’s national builder’s risk practice group, Richard L. Flanagan II previously served as regional property director for CRC Insurance Services and was an account executive at Aon Re Services in Chicago. Specializing in construction and real estate accounts, Flanagan’s team delivers customized products for retailers nationwide. He has led CRC’s property division on the West Coast since 2005 and, throughout his career, has created multiple exclusive proprietary builder’s risk products.
“I believe a hands-on, personal approach is vitally important to creating lasting relationships,” Flanagan says. “From a wholesale perspective, I believe the space was underserved 18 years ago when I really began to focus on the construction vertical. During that time, it has become a huge source of business for RT Property nationwide. It’s truly an honor to be considered to be one of the top in this space, [and] the credit really must go to the fantastic team I work with.”
