Martin F. McGavin, JD

Account Executive


Mr. McGavin wrote the risk management column on workers compensation issues, "Workers Compensation Claims Management," and Blueprint for Workers Comp Cost Containment. He is also a contributing author to Practical Risk Management.

Mr. McGavin is currently an account executive working with a wide range of clients in transportation, manufacturing, construction, and retail.

Mr. McGavin has spent more than 42 years in risk management, mostly with Fortune 100 companies. His experience includes managing a 50-state workers compensation program covering 50,000 employees; managing the actuarial process, Sarbanes-Oxley Act compliance, and third-party audits for a $160 million book of global insurance reserves; designing and building a risk management information system housing more than 350,000 claims; and managing the risk management aspects of a $6 billion acquisition. He has negotiated a wide variety of insurance programs, including self-insured retentions and complex high-deductible programs, and has negotiated pay-for-performance broker and third-party administrator (TPA) contracts valued at more than $1 million each. He has managed claims and litigation resulting from virtually every type of loss, including workers compensation, property, premises and product liability, employment claims, civil rights claims, TPA and attorney malpractice, and complex coverage litigation. He also has experience with captive management, having led several captive feasibility studies, including one evaluating a $156 million loss transfer and another that led to the formation of a Bermuda-based captive that reinsured a global property program insuring more than $1 billion in insured values and a global liability program reinsuring losses in more than 60 countries. He has also managed the aftermath of several insurance insolvencies, helping insureds minimize the potential loss.

Mr. McGavin has cochaired the national conference on workers compensation sponsored by the Manufacturer's Alliance. He has made numerous presentations on insurance issues to groups including the National Conference of State Insurance Legislators, the Risk and Insurance Management Society, the National Council of Self-Insurers, several state self-insurance associations, and the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions.

In the past, he has served as president of the Wisconsin chapter of the Risk Management Insurance Society, as a member of the board of managers of the National Council of Self-Insurers, and on the boards of the Missouri and Michigan self-insurers associations.

Mr. McGavin is a graduate of Michigan State University.
