Throughout his career, Macknin has proven his expertise in risk management consultancy and insurance brokerage for mid-market and expanding enterprises.   With thirty three years of professional expertise in risk management, property and casualty and employee benefits, he uniquely knows how to explain and deliver Enterprise Risk Management to the middle market.  David is widely recognized for partnering with professional services, technology, real estate, manufacturing, and social service organizations to identify, understand, and treat their business risks.
