Healthcare Team Risk Manager
David earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and had plans to become an FBI agent or US Marshal. In 1997, he began working in risk management when Clarkson Hospital and University Hospital merged. David was asked if he was interested in integrating the property and casualty insurance and claims management program for the newly merged organization. He accepted the role ready to learn a new field. He was with Nebraska Medicine for the last 25 years as their Transferred Risk and Claims Manager. He joined FNIC in 2022 as a Sales Associate on the healthcare team, sharing his risk management and claims experience with clients. David finds teaching and consulting on medico-legal issues, the litigation process, and claims to be a rewarding part of his position.
David is a past Board Secretary and Board Chairman of VODEC, Inc., a not-for-profit organization that provides life-enriching services for people with disabilities. He is also one of the founding board members and former scholarship chair of Kids’ Chance of Nebraska, whose mission is to provide scholarships to the children of Nebraska workers who have been severely or fatally injured in an employment related accident. Outside of work David enjoys fishing, hunting, reading, watching volleyball, and cooking especially when it involves a grill or smoker. Did we mention he likes to fish? He enjoys it so much we had to include it twice.
