About

Michael Stack

Michael Stack is the Principle of Amaxx Risk Solutions. He is an expert in employer communication systems and helps employers reduce their workers comp costs by 20% to 50%. He resides in the Boston area and works as a Qualified Loss Management Program provider working with high experience modification factor companies in the Massachusetts State Risk Pool.

As the senior editor of Amaxx’s publishing division, Michael is on the cutting edge of innovation and thought leadership in workers compensation cost containment. He stays in tune with the latest industry challenges, and pursues partnerships with industry leaders to provide the go-to resource for best practices.

In almost every problem, Michael believes some facet of the cause is communication. In the case of Workers Compensation, poor communication is not only causing emotional strains on the employee and employer, but also unnecessary strain on the employer’s bottom line. He believes the root of a good Workers Comp Cost Reduction system must be Win-Win to be successful.

Michael brings a unique CPA background to the workers compensation space, and is highly in tune with the impact of workers compensation cost containment on a companies bottom line.  He is dedicated to writing, speaking, and masterminding with others for the purpose of continuous improvement in an area so vitally important to companies and individuals.

Tribute

A discussion of Injury Management would not be complete without mentioning our friends and colleagues who died in the terror attacks on the World Trade Center September 11, 2001. In particular, we are proud of the many accomplishments of Harry Taback and Bob Ferris who played a significant role in the development and success of the Injury Management Program. As dedicated safety professionals, we are sure Harry and Bob gave their lives helping others escape the building.
