Coley joined LSM just over a year ago, responsible for managing the energy, property and construction claims team and succeeded Scott Kellers who covered the role on an interim basis for the past year.
He will continue to lead this team as part of his new role. Previously Gavin worked in the London Market for many years holding various senior roles within the specialty market.
Mike Gillett, chief claims officer said: “Since joining LSM Gavin has proved himself to be very capable and his promotion is well deserved.”
LSM has also announced the appointment of Kevin Milleras the energy, property and construction technical claims lead, reporting to Coley.
Milleras joins from AIG, where he was major loss claims adjuster. He brings over 30 years’ experience gained in the London Market, having handled some of the most challenging energy and property London market losses in recent years.
Gillett added: “Kevin is a market-leading practitioner in Energy, Property and Construction claims. He brings a wealth of experience and technical capability to the role. His appointment reflects the continued focus of the claims team on having outstanding technical capability that underpins our claims service.”
Both roles are based in London and take effect immediately.
