Mark Abrahamson | HNI Risk Services

Mark retired from the Wisconsin State Patrol in 2017. His extensive DOT experience has taught him an important lesson: drivers often don’t realize the impact that their behavior has on the company they work for. He de-risks business by working directly with transportation leaders to develop a strategic vision, swarm the problems that stand in the way, and create a game plan that ensures success.
