Richard Shasteen

Risk Manager

Mr. Shasteen spends his time working with a multitude of departments managing insurance and mitigating risk to protect stakeholders' assets. Mr. Shasteen most recently came from the Risk Management department at Beazer Homes. While there, he was involved in all aspects of the department including everything from policy renewals to managing claims. Before his time at Beazer, Richard spent time working for QBE, a top 20 general insurance and reinsurance company.
