Shawn McLaughlin


For over 15 years, Shawn has focused solely on providing insurance products and risk strategies for the Healthcare Industry, serving a wide variety of healthcare risk exposures. Shawn has had extensive hands-on experience throughout the insurance spectrum from fully-insured programs to various levels of self-insurance and alternative risk.

In 2002, Shawn was one of the founding members of Risk Transfer Insurance Alliance (RTA), an insurance brokerage firm specializing in insurance and risk management services for the Healthcare Industry. In June 2010, RTA was acquired by one of the largest insurance brokerage firms in North America, HUB International. RTA became the Healthcare Practice for HUB NE and continues to provide specialized services to their clients throughout the U.S., but with access to many more resources under the new banner of HUB Healthcare Solutions.

Prior to HUB Healthcare Solutions, Shawn was the Insurance Manager and Malpractice Claims Manager for one of the largest healthcare systems in Boston, which was transitioning from first dollar coverage to a self-insured insurance/captive insurance program. His role included the management of the system’s insurance program and its 1,000+ physicians. Additionally, his responsibilities included continuously evaluating the hospital’s risk exposures.

Outside of his corporate leadership role with HUB, Shawn is the lead contact for many of our large facilities, physician practices, and complex clients with difficult malpractice needs. He is continually providing our clients and our team with important updates in both the marketplace and the healthcare industry. Shawn’s expertise is in casualty lines, specifically the medical malpractice, commercial general and the umbrella/excess liability placements. These programs range from first-dollar coverage to sophisticated/alternative risk structures. Shawn also manages the various relationships with the healthcare liability markets for RTA with assistance from the other senior staff.

An Honors Healthcare Administration Graduate of Stonehill College in North Easton, MA, Shawn is an active member in the Professional Liability Underwriting Society (PLUS), Massachusetts Society for Healthcare Risk Management, and the Massachusetts/Rhode Island Group Management Association.
