“Bill Evans is an expert in the field of railroad risk transfer and insurance.

He spent 10 years working for me at Union Pacific as Senior Director of Risk Management. His knowledge and leadership saved the company millions of dollars.

Because of his expertise, Mr. Evans was frequently called upon to assist with the contractual work associated with industry-wide efforts such as positive train control.

I believe that Mr. Evans can make a substantial contribution to any organization that wants to upgrade its contractual risk transfer and insurance operations.”

Warren B. Beach

Assistant Vice President, Finance-Insurance, Retired, Union Pacific Railroad Company

“Bill Evans (CRT) is highly experienced and skillful at transferring risk of loss to commercial insurers. CRT helped KCT evaluate its insurance contractual risk transfer practices compared to the railroad industry’s best practices, and implement the needed changes to align KCT’s practice with the industry’s best practice. As a result, KCT’s contracting process has been streamlined, it now enjoys reduced resistance from shippers and contractors to its insurance requirements, and KCT is confident that when losses occur, and we know they will, that it is much more likely to obtain the defense and indemnity it is counting on from commercial insurers.

In short, I would consider any company very lucky to have CRT join the team. Applying its CRTC10TN contractual risk management tools is a virtual shoo-in for creating the atmosphere and structure necessary to lower the total cost of risk, and for maximizing recovery from commercial insurance.”
