Sedgwick, a global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions, has appointed Gordon Young as head of fraud data and insight to “strengthen its counter-fraud strategy and help the industry’s fight against fraud”.
In his new role, he will ensure that Sedgwick’s clients are provided with “trend analysis, meaningful insight and will provide a suite of data solutions that allow clients to take action on a month-by-month basis to fine tune their approach to counter fraud”.
Young has over 25 years of experience in fraud intelligence, investigation and prevention.
It comes as the group announces it has become an affiliate member of the Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB) – a not-for-profit company established in 2006 to lead the “insurance industry’s collective fight against insurance fraud”.
Ian Carman, director of investigation services at Sedgwick, said: “We believe in the power of the collective when it comes to tackling fraud and protecting our clients’ genuine customers from the cost of fraud.”
“Our affiliation with the IFB significantly enhances our counter-fraud proposition which is centred around early detection and intervention through the application of market-leading digital tools matched with best-in-class counter fraud expertise.”
