There are many positive things about CIP’s that help contractors. However, there is a downside if a contractor is not aware of some of the consequences. This program will help contractors achieve the following objectives:

  • Know the ramifications of including / excluding insurance costs in bids both at the front end and back end of a job.
  • Understand what coverages are being provided and equally what is not being provided.
  • Understand the importance of developing a working relationship with the CIP administrator/broker in order to get access to information.
  • Know the person(s) at the broker and/or sponsor levels that is/are responsible for handling the claim in order to have a voice in the claims process.

Questions regarding the subject matter can be left in the Questions and Comments section on the Registration page; we will forward it to the Presenters prior to the webinar so that they can be addressed during the presentation.

Daniel A. Zirpoli
account Executive

Dan Zirpoli joined Construction Risk Partners in 2014 as an Account Associate and Wrap Up Program Administrator. In his role as wrap up administrator he maintained a close relationship with both clients and subcontractors throughout the entire administration process. Dan helped the clients through the bid process by evaluating and calculating insurance cost verification forms. Once a project enrolled, he worked with subcontractors to secure their enrollment information and insurance certificates and confirms their compliance with the project’s requirements. 

Dan was promoted to Account Manager in 2017 where he expanded his focus to daily account servicing. In this role, he worked with clients on their day to day insurance needs as well as being involved through the renewal and marketing process. His involvement in the placement of insurance for many large and sophisticated contractors has expanded his technical knowledge as well as carrier and client relationships. He has been involved in multiple CCIP and project specific insurance programs and has had an active role in his client’s Captive operations. 

Dan has also been integrated into his client’s Risk Management team which has further increased his knowledge in the construction risk arena. He touches all areas of the business from the RFP and Estimating process through field operations and subcontractor compliance.

Dan was recently promoted to Account Executive in early 2020 where he continues his growth in all aspects of the insurance and risk business. 

Dan received his Bachelor of Arts Degree with a Major in Economics in February of 2014, from CUNY Queens College in Flushing, New York.
