Global loss adjuster McLarens has announced the appointment of Neil Baldwin as its executive director.
Baldwin has over 33 years of experience and a background in account management, business development and complex and major loss at a senior management level. He will also sit on McLarens’ UK and Ireland executive board.
Baldwin is the latest in a string of high-level appointments at McLarens which, in recent months, has also recruited Mark Simmonds as head of construction and engineering and Kim Alcock as head of UK casualty and third-party administration (TPA) operations.
Prior to joining McLarens, Baldwin was the head of UK retail team, client relationship management, at Sedgwick UK and has also held senior positions at Vericlaim UK, McLarens, and Zurich, where he held the position of real estate claims manager/ projects manager and major loss team member/ major loss team manager.
Baldwin said: “McLarens is well renowned as a specialist provider of expert, technical loss adjusting and it’s a proposition that clearly resonates with the market.
“This is exactly the type of work that I’ve specialised in over the course of my career. Robust account management and first-class service delivery are what I’m passionate about and it’s clear that both of these are integral to the McLarens approach.”
Steven Wallace, UK and Ireland managing director said: “We have seen considerable growth over the past year, and we’ve made numerous senior hires to support and build off the momentum and further extend our service offering.
“It is hugely positive to have someone of Neil’s calibre on board; he’s well known in the marketplace and brings a unique perspective that will be invaluable in supporting the continued expansion of our business. His values and passion for service focussed, technical loss adjusting aligns precisely to the McLarens ethos.”
