Marinalife Launches Boaters Insurance Program

6/8/2011

Baltimore, MD - Marinalife, the leading online concierge service for boaters, has launched a Boaters Insurance Program (www.marinalife.com/insurance) which gives owners a dedicated hands-on service experience from a trusted resource. Marinalife Insurance Services is led by marine insurance and risk management veteran Peter Teuten.

For the active boater, maintaining comprehensive and adequate insurance is an integral component of cruising with confidence. “Offering insurance is a natural extension of the Marinalife comprehensive service model. We have a deep understanding of our members’ needs and how insurance fits into the overall equation. In addition to the expertise we provide, members will experience program specific cost advantages and can avoid having multiple providers,” explains Teuten.

Marinalife member Bob Arrington is a highly experienced boater and shares, “A lot of companies were willing to quote the insurance on our new boat, but only the professionals at Marinalife took the time and offered their expertise to make sure we were covered through the complete purchase process. These are the kind of people with whom we want to do business!”

Marinalife Insurance Services is a Lloyd’s coverholder as well as an agent for ACE and several other key market leaders.

Marinalife members will receive insurance discounts and preferred pricing but the program is available to all qualifying boaters. More information is available at www.marinalife.com/insurance, by emailing insurance@marinalife.com or calling 410.752.0505 ext.1004

 

Executive Pay – Overpaid with your money!

10/19/2010

How can we justify massive pay packages for public companies losing money in a downward cycle? That’s an interesting, and ever controversial subject, which plays out with must partisan discourse in the court of public opinion. I saw the issue in its simplest terms in April 2009 (and still do!). Whether my fellow pundits on CNBC agreed with me is another matter. Check out how this played out below.


TRC Announces the CAPTURE™ enterprise risk initiative

10th October 2010

Having lead global market thinking in the early concepts of ERM well before ERM was ‘fashionable’, we have developed an advanced ERM 2.0 process implementation model to enable transition ERM initiatives from concept to reality. Known as CAPTURE™, we expect this to become a de facto industry standard much as our MMM (Measure, Manage, Monitor) concept developed in 2001, or our Technology implementation methods (Evolution of ERM) conceived in 2000 have now become in their various evolved forms. The difference this time around is empirical evidence and practical experience. Ten years into ERM, we know what works and what doesn’t, we know that hypothesis is not necessarily practical solution, much as evidence neither necessarily defines nor heightens defensibility. What works is what can get done effectively, efficiently and sensibly so that a business is better managed, more secure in its potential outcomes, and more defensible against the many threats to its existence.
