Motor damage expert Nick Rossiter and recoveries specialist Lee Crouch are joining the Allianz Commercial motor claims team as technical managers.
Allianz said the two internal appointments reinforce the motor claims team now led by Nick Kelsall.
Previously motor damage strategy manager, Rossiter brings “a wealth of expertise” in vehicle technology, repair and supply chain. He was instrumental in rolling out the automated procurement of green parts, as well as encouraging their wider adoption.
In his 14 years at Allianz, he has held a variety of positions in underwriting, operations and claims.
Crouch, who joined Allianz five years ago via the claims graduate scheme, has an “impressive track record” in handling major loss claims in motor and casualty and most recently as recoveries controller.
Joining respectively from the supply chain and claims strategy teams, they will now report to Kelsall, who became head of motor claims last month.
Kelsall commented: “Brokers praised the technical expertise of our teams in the recent Brokerbility survey and one of my top priorities is bolstering that expertise even further, given the future challenges around claims, in particular inflation.”
“I am confident our four-strong team of motor claims technical managers will contribute to delivering excellent service and value for our customers and partners.”
