Risk Strategies Company Expands Loss-Control Engineering Capabilities

Amy M. Landry Joins as Property Loss-Control Engineer, Brings Experience in Identifying Potential Risks in Business Operations and Employee Safety

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 12, 2016) - Risk Strategies Company, a privately held, rapidly growing national insurance brokerage and risk management firm, today announced the expansion of its loss-control capabilities with the addition of Amy M. Landry as a property loss-control engineer. The addition will expand the firm's ability to offer clients expert insight on ways to prevent costly claims that interrupt operations.

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.

"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."

In her role with Risk Strategies, Landry will draw on her education and field experience to help clients in various industries better understand how pre-emptive actions in their operations and procedures can not only control insurance costs, but also increase the likelihood of gaining better terms, conditions and rates when seeking new insurance coverages and protect their bottom line by improving business resiliency.

"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.

Landry will also assist with post-loss cause and origin investigations and help drive Risk Strategies' natural catastrophe modeling initiatives.

An engineering graduate of the University of New Haven, Landry's work experience has involved 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. She has experience in a wide range of industries and settings, including data centers, manufacturing plants, food production facilities, chemical plants, universities, and warehouse among many others.

Landry will be based out of Risk Strategies' Boston office and will be available for engagements across Risk Strategies' national client base.
