Lee Hastings


I started playing duplicate bridge in the mid-70s and took up the hobby passionately the mid-80s. Bridge, specifically tournament bridge as we know it, faces numerous challenges to its viability as our current membership ages.  I want to work for the Unit and the game that feeds my passion. I will use my skills and prior board experience to help our Board better serve your enjoyment of the game.

For over 20 years, I worked in insurance claims management for national companies, gaining mediation and negotiation skills.  Currently, I am the Education Chair and Instructor for the St. Louis CPCU Society and the St. Louis RIMS Chapters. I am also a consultant and expert witness for persons and organizations involved in disputes regarding damages or coverage under their policies.

Additionally, I am ACBL-certified teacher for bridge and Easybridge.  I am both a club director and the current owner of the Maryland Heights Monday morning game. I also run the two monthly Unit Championships 8 is Enough and the Handicapped Swiss Teams.,

I love education and learning.  i have a BA in Business Administration and Economics, an MS in Risk Management and Insurance, an MBA with a concentration in Finance, the CPCU designation, and 7 insurance associate degrees.

I am married to Jennifer Luner and have two cats, Caesar and Cleopatra.
