LSM promotes Franken-le-Clercq to claims leadership


Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM) has promoted Renske Franken-le-Clercq to head of European claims for commercial and specialty business written in the insurer’s European branches outside of London.

Based in The Hague, Franken-le-Clercq will join LSM’s claims leadership team, reporting to Mike Gillett, head of claims, and to Kadidja Sinz, head of europe.

This dual reporting line reflects LSM’s commitment to ensuring that its claims and underwriting teams work closely together to enable its European customers and brokers to benefit from a fully coordinated, class claims service, the insurer said.

Prior to her new role, Franken-le-Clercq was claims manager for LSM in The Hague for six years.

Gillett said: “I am delighted that Renske has accepted this new role. It’s always rewarding to be able to fill senior positions from within the business and Renske’s promotion is testament to the depth of talent that we have in our claims operations within Europe.”

“Kadidja and I look forward to working with Renske in the continued development of a European claims proposition that fully supports the ambition of LSM in the region.”
