M.D. Hastings Risk Consulting was formed to provide an independent source of advice that is not tied to the sale of insurance products or ancillary services.

Backed by its founder’s 30 years in the insurance industry, including 20 years as an insurance broker and consultant serving the construction industry, our goal is to promote collaborative teams, informed decisions, and effective risk management strategies. Dedicated to two industries marked by relentless change and innovation, we help sophisticated construction teams ensure that all the pieces of their risk management program fit together.

While no stranger to innovation, we’re not intent on reinventing the wheel; in some cases, all that’s needed is assistance to ensure that all the spokes are aligned to keep the wheel true and rolling in the right direction.

Whether we’re making history or just “making sure,” M.D. Hastings Risk Consulting will work in concert with your insurers, brokers, counsel, and internal and external team members to ensure that critical decisions are made with the benefit of all available knowledge and experience.

Let us help you transform your risk management strategy
