On top of the many years of risk navigation experience that CAI provides, Marc is uniquely qualified to help traverse the ever-evolving risks of architectural and engineering firms. Prior to becoming a risk advisor, he spent a decade working for one of the largest consulting firms in the region. There he became a subject matter expert in the field of data collection, bridge inspection, as well as plan production. Working closely with state and local agencies as well as private clients to find bespoke solutions was and still is a passion of Marc’s. As a former engineer, solving problems is innate to him and something that has transferred over to assessing and handling risk. From corridor modeling, semi-integral abutment design and using Microstation to now professional liability, benefit plans, and general liability; we can assure you that no one else has the experience combined with want-to to make sure your firm can continue designing cool things and improving the quality of life.
