Vice President, Claims
With more than 20 years’ experience in the marine claims industry, Rick brings extensive knowledge in the nuances and challenges of managing complex boat losses and disaster recovery efforts. After joining the BoatUS Claims team as a trainee in 1991, Rick spent years as an adjuster bringing swift resolution to boat claims big and small before ultimately becoming Assistant Vice President of the department's Liability and Specialty programs. Having also served as director of the BoatUS Catastrophe (CAT) Field Team, Rick has been at ground zero for many of the nation's most notable hurricanes, dispatching teams and directing grand-scale recovery operations at a moment's notice.
Rick brings strong leadership, vision and of course, a lifelong love of boating! An avid boater since childhood, Rick spent much of his early years sailing and racing along the northern Chesapeake Bay with his family; a pastime he's quick to tell you has since been replaced by soccer games and swim meets for his two children.
