Paul White, Sedgwick CEO for the UK, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank David for everything he has delivered for the business over the last 12 years; he’s built a fantastic team that will keep Sedgwick at the forefront of our industry.
“I am thrilled to have Nicola join the Sedgwick family. With her notable business development experience, we look forward to the new opportunities and growth she will bring about for Sedgwick’s business and our clients in the market.”
He added: “This appointment will enhance Sedgwick’s leadership position in the claims management and services sector to ensure we remain firmly on track to deliver on our longstanding commitment to growth through client partnerships and investments in technology and innovation.”
