Hayward Howard


Hayward is currently a partner at the firm and joined MDP in 2006, shortly after graduating from the University of North Carolina where he was a captain on the lacrosse team.  He originally spent a majority of his time working on our National Trust program focusing on the Gulf coast region after hurricanes Ike and Katrina.  His current expertise includes nonprofits as well as large real estate schedules and professional liability coverage.

Hayward is a former member of the Board of Trustees for St. Paul’s School and an active volunteer partner with the Special Olympics – Maryland.  Originally from New Orleans, with a lot of family still there, Hayward always looks forward to his annual trip back for Mardi Gras.  He is an avid golfer, but you will also see him on the squash courts or playing a pickup game of basketball.  Hayward and his wife Katie live in Ruxton, love to travel, and are huge Ravens fans.

Galveston Historical Foundation once struggled to find insurance representatives who not only appreciated historic buildings and vessels, but also understood the complexities of owning and managing these valuable treasures.  Following Hurricane Ike in 2008, MDP and the National Trust Insurance Services proved their value and commitment.  We now enjoy almost ten years of service and have the confidence of a comprehensive insurance package that we review annually.  This confidence allows us to do what we do — interpreting and stewarding these nationally recognized historic properties—and MDP and NTIS to do what they do—service a customer with loyalty and an eye for cost efficient insurance coverage.
