Woburn, MA (June 3, 2014) – Chief Business Performance Officer (CBPO) Bud LaRosa of Tocci Building Companies (Tocci), a Boston-area construction manager and recognized leader in virtual design and construction solutions, recently received the CRIS designation. This insurance designation recognizes specialized expertise in construction insurance, and establishes one’s commitment to the construction industry through an on-going education component focusing on construction risk and insurance.
“Understanding construction risks and how to control risk management costs is important to Tocci, its clients and subcontractors,” says Bud LaRosa, Chief Business Performance Officer at Tocci. “Completing this course has broadened my knowledge on how to effectively mitigate the risk management challenges faced by the stakeholders in the construction industry.”
Developed by International Risk Management Institute (IRMI), CRIS makes it easier for insurance agents, brokers, customer service representatives, and in-house risk managers or insurance buyers to gain specialized expertise in construction insurance and risk management. Obtaining the CRIS certification increases the competence and credibility of insurance professionals who sell, underwrite, or purchase insurance for contractors. Construction insurance buyers who obtain the certification have the knowledge to make wiser insurance and risk management decisions for their employers.
Last year, LaRosa received the title of Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP) from The Institute of Certified Construction Industry Financial Professionals (ICCIFP), a national organization dedicated to promoting excellence and best practices in construction financial management. The CCIFP designation is the sole industry certification acknowledging a financial professional’s true understanding of the unique business of construction. Additionally in 2013, LaRosa was named CFO of the Year by Boston Business Journal. With these achievements, LaRosa has demonstrated his continued commitment to accuracy of finance and insurance in the construction industry.
