Background

Joe Junfola writes on construction defect coverage for IRMI.com.

Mr. Junfola's career in claims spans 4 decades. In July 2019, after more than 26 years with Admiral Insurance Group as a claim officer specializing in long-term exposure/continuous damage claims on a national basis, in particular construction defect claims, Mr. Junfola formed a consulting practice with a primary, but not exclusive, concentration in construction and design professional claims.

A staunch believer in continuous learning and improvement, Joe earned the following professional designations: CPCU, RPLU, RPLU+, SCLA, AIC, ASLI, ARe, AU, ARM, CRIS, AIS, MLIS, AIC-M, and AIDA. In 2008, he earned the Executive Certificate in Negotiations from the Mendoza College of Business, University of Notre Dame, and in 2009, the Home Inspection Certificate through Rutgers University and the National Institute of Building Inspectors. In 2014, he earned the Certificate in Law and Legal Process from Southern New Hampshire University. Throughout his career, Mr. Junfola has attended countless seminars and workshops. More recently, he completed the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School.

Mr. Junfola created and conducts a webinar/workshop series: Cause and Effect: Managing the Construction Defect Claim. He is currently an instructor with the Academy of Insurance. He has also published several articles and an eBook, Construction Defect Claims: Handbook for Insurance, Risk Management, Construction, and Design Professionals.

In May 2020, he became a member of the Transaction Advisory Group (TAG), which is a part of Suite 200 Solutions, a consulting firm that specializes in advisory services, market intelligence, and talent acquisition. TAG works primarily with funding sponsors to identify, vet, and facilitate deals with InsurTech and technology-enabled services companies.
