We Are Committed to Leading and Guiding the Organization
J. Lawrence “Larry” Lawson
Executive Vice President, Risk Management and Insurance
Larry Lawson is the Executive Vice President of Risk Management and Insurance for FCC Services. In his current role, he develops and implements strategy while leading the company’s risk management and insurance practice. Larry also serves as risk manager for the Farm Credit System, president of the Farm Credit System Association Captive Insurance Company, and president of Harvest Reinsurance Services, Inc.
For more than 30 years, Larry has assisted companies in forming and executing their business and risk management strategies, both as an executive and as a consultant. This includes work for privately-owned and publicly-traded organizations, Fortune 500 companies, manufacturing and construction firms, financial institutions, public entities, and large national associations. In his professional life, Larry hopes to use his unique experiences and skills to empower his team, to serve his clients, and to achieve outstanding results for the company in order to enhance the existence of all three.
Professionally, Larry is most proud of Harvest Reinsurance Services, a new reinsurance subsidiary that he envisioned, designed, and helped to create. The subsidiary was formed to enhance the existing crop insurance strategy for Farm Credit’s $1.5 billion book of business and succeeded in growing the business from zero to $70 million of gross written premium in a three-year period.
But it’s not all business, all the time, for Larry. He draws inspiration from those who give sacrificially for the sake of another and from those who overcome difficult circumstances to live a joyful life and help others do so, as well. His personal value statement? Always keep learning and growing. His mission? To help others do the same.
Outside of FCC Services events, Larry is available for speaking engagements in the following areas of expertise: risk management and insurance.
Larry earned a master’s degree from Northwestern University and a bachelor’s degree from Drake University with majors in finance and marketing. He also holds CPCU and CFA professional designations.
