Specialty: Builder’s risk
While Richard Flanagan admits that 2020 was “incredibly difficult on every level,” he adds that “I trust my teammates, my trading partners, and they trust me. We see the whole field and try to remain ahead of the curve, and with this, we have risen to meet the challenges of 2020.”
Flanagan is the creator and leader of RT’s national Builder’s Risk Practice Group. Specializing in construction and real estate accounts, including DIC insurance (wind and earthquake) placements, he leads a dedicated team to deliver superior, customized products for retailers nationwide, while creating multiple exclusive proprietary builder’s risk products and managing a book and offices that grow yearly. Flanagan believes his hands-on, personal approach is vitally important to creating lasting relationships.
Outside of his work at RT Specialty, Flanagan serves alongside his wife on the board of the Visionary Circle for the National 9/11 Memorial and Museum. He also serves on the Rising Leaders Council at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Together, he and his wife contribute locally to Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Orange County and Second Harvest Food Bank.
