Sedgwick unveils new UK leadership team


Sedgwick Claims Management Services has named Ian Muress, Stewart Steel and Paul White to leadership roles for its combined business operations in the UK, following its acquisition of Cunningham Lindsey.

Muress, Steel and White have been installed as Sedgwick works to move global loss adjusting, claims management and risk solutions firm Cunningham Lindsey and its nearly six thousands members of staff toward operating globally under the Sedgwick brand name.

Muress, Sedgwick’s CEO for international operations, based in London, provides executive oversight for all business operations outside the US and Canada.

Prior to joining Sedgwick, Muress served as CEO of international operations for a large global adjusting firm, where, over the course of his extended tenure, he ascended the company’s ranks to global executive leader.

Steel supports Muress in the management of the UK business as CEO. Since 2009, Steel has had responsibility for the leadership and direction of the UK operations of Vericlaim, a Sedgwick company.

With more than 35 years of experience in the loss adjusting business, Steel has served in various industry leadership roles.

Following nine years as COO of Cunningham Lindsey, White joins Sedgwick in the same capacity for the UK.

He previously held a number of roles at a London-based insurance services firm, overseeing operations management, strategic planning, and the due diligence and implementation planning related to two acquisitions.

Muress (pictured) said: “As we expand our global operations with a growing footprint, improved capabilities and broader technical resources, our focus remains clearly on our clients, and we are pleased to have veterans like Stewart and Paul leading our UK operations in delivering outstanding service to clients.”

“I look forward to working with them and the rest of the management team to ensure we capitalise on the opportunities in the market and enhance services and value for our customers and industry partners.”
