Consolidated Insurance + Risk Management is proud to announce their exclusive partnership with Maryland Construction Network (MCN) to offer member companies a competitive insurance, bonding and risk management services program featuring many additional benefits. Teaming with Consolidated and MCN to support the program is FCCI Insurance Group, a construction-focused insurance carrier operating in 19 states with regional Underwriting, Claims, and Risk Control support via offices in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.
Maryland Construction Network (MCN) is a one stop source for construction business advocacy, industry news, and educational information. With more than 450 members reaching every corner of Maryland, MCN is thrilled to offer member benefits to help build on the exponential growth they have achieved in their six year history. When asked what he was most excited about with regard to the new insurance program, MCN Founder and Partner Rob Bertazon said, “Having an insurer who understands and appreciates your industry is paramount to receiving exceptional service and value. FCCI was founded in 1959 by contractors and they understand construction and its associated risks. Maryland Construction Network is proud that FCCI, through its agency partner Consolidated Insurance, is now offering MCN members a comprehensive package of insurance coverages and surety bonding solutions designed with your business needs in mind. I urge you to consider what FCCI can do to help you manage risk for your company.”
MCN provides innovative education and information, premier networking and marketing opportunities, and preferred industry resources. With exemplary products and services designed by seasoned industry professionals, Maryland Construction Network (MCN) is an affordable and forward-thinking organization. Asked about the new program with Consolidated and FCCI Insurance, Verna Regler, Partner at MCN said, “Finally, a reasonable alternative, offering competitive insurance and bonding programs to Maryland’s construction community! Maryland Construction Network is excited to be working with both FCCI and Consolidated Insurance + Risk Management, two companies with deep roots in the construction industry, to provide an Association Insurance Program.”
FCCI Insurance Group was founded in 1959 when a group of Florida-based construction executives had to come up with an affordable option for coverage in a challenging Worker’s Compensation environment. Since then, FCCI has expanded into 19 states, continues to expand to new territories, and offers a full range of insurance products and surety bonding for the construction industry and many other business segments. FCCI boasts an A.M. Best rating of “A Excellent” with a “Stable” outlook. At the helm of the company is Maryland native Craig Johnson, President/CEO and Chairman of the Board. At present, all but one Board Member on FCCI’s Corporate Board of Directors is, or at one time was, the owner or executive of a construction company.
Responsible for the design and implementation of the new MCN program within FCCI Insurance is Senior Vice President and Mid-Atlantic/Southeast Regional Vice President Courtney Hart. Commenting on the new partnership with MCN and Consolidated, Mr. Hart states, “The allegiance between MCN, Consolidated Insurance and FCCI helps us achieve one of our primary goals for the Mid-Atlantic Region, which is to increase brand awareness while simultaneously helping a rapidly growing and important industry association within the state of Maryland.”
Consolidated Insurance + Risk Management, started in 1969 with roots dating back to the 1930s, is a full-service independent insurance agency in Owings Mills. When it became clear that the traditional approach to insurance was broken, Consolidated flipped the script. Through tailored assessments, their SWT ™ process, and a passion for promoting their clients’ brands in the insurance marketplace, Consolidated has become an industry leader serving the Greater Mid-Atlantic region. As a top-tier agent of FCCI Insurance Group, Consolidated was tapped as the program ambassador after 18 months of extensive planning and research. Consolidated’s partnership with MCN comes with a proven track record of construction industry knowledge and commitment to Maryland’s construction community.
Dan Workmeister, Vice President at Consolidated, had this to say of the partnership, “Maryland Construction Network and FCCI are the perfect fit. If you follow their stories, it is clear to see. We have an insurance carrier conceived by a group of local business owners, mostly contractors, to provide organizations with affordable insurance programs to meet their needs. We have an industry association founded by individuals steeped in the local construction community and committed to working with contractors to overcome their challenges. By working together, MCN and FCCI will be a real asset to the contracting community by helping contractors in this region to reach their objectives.”
