Scott Ferguson to Lead Operations for RiskMD


Welcome Scott!

Orlando, FL

RiskMD is proud to announce the addition of G. Scott “Scott” Ferguson as Chief Operations Officer.  Scott will bring RiskMD’s cutting edge data analytics to the insurance industry and beyond.  Started in 2005, RiskMD retains a process patent for a “System and Method for Valuation , Acquisition and Management of Insurance Policies” (Patent #10846801).

Scott has over 30 years of Risk Management, Insurance Brokerage and Professional Employer Organization (“PEO”) experience.  He has been a Director of Risk Management for a national publicly-traded specialty retailer. A Risk Management Practice Leader for a national publicly-traded insurance brokerage house, and most recently, a Business Partner for a national publicly-traded PEO/Human Capital Management firm.  He looks forward to being in the private realm.  In his latter role, he turned around a failing business unit during the Covid pandemic through strong leadership and management. Scott not only brings a technical insurance expertise to RiskMD, but solid insurance fundamentals and organizational development skills to help profitably grow a company.  Scott analyzes processes, and is able to determine the most efficient method of accomplishing tasks. 

According to RiskMD Founder and CEO Paul Hughes, “it is rare to find anyone with the depth of experience in insurance brokerage and risk management.  The fact that he has used that in the past to run a substantial block of business for a large Professional Employer Organization (“PEO”) is huge.  He is foremost a great guy I look forward to everyone having the opportunity to work with.  He brings immediate value to our client and carrier stakeholders. We look forward to him being in the lead on crucial initiatives such as API connectivity with vendors, pricing models and benchmarking of data sets to provide quicker, and more impactful, directional information than anyone else”.

Scott is a proud father of two children.  His son is a recent West Point graduate (Go Army! Beat Navy!) and his daughter a senior graduating with a degree in Public Relations from his alma mater, Biola University in La Mirada California.

Scott holds a BA in Psychology from Biola University, MA in Organizational Management from University of Phoenix, and has earned the Associate in Risk Management (ARM).  Scott also is licensed with the State of California as a Self-Insurance Plan Administrator.

Lastly, Scott is also a die-hard Patriots fan (in good times and bad,) and a proud member of the Red Sox Nation.

Scott can be reached at (619) 203-0337 or regarding any questions about RiskMD and its capabilities.  He looks forward to working with you in the near future.
