Expert team to lead the company's strategic growth in the Canadian market
TORONTO, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sedgwick and its subsidiary Vericlaim, a global provider of loss adjusting and claims management solutions, announced that they will expand their services available in the Canadian market.
In addition to Sedgwick's existing third-party administration (TPA) operations, the companies will offer high-quality claims administration and adjusting services designed to meet the specific needs of the Canadian market in the areas of property, liability, auto and niche industries.
Industry veterans Michael Holden and Terry Deamer are leading the companies' Canadian expansion. Holden has been appointed president, and Deamer will serve as senior vice president of operations. During their extensive careers, Holden and Deamer served as CEO and CFO, respectively, of Granite Claims Solutions, working hand-in-hand to transform Granite from a small business into a leading national Canadian provider.
"Sedgwick has been helping its U.S.-based clients manage their exposures in Canada for the past 12 years; this expansion ensures we can continue helping our clients manage and control their risk needs as they grow and that we are optimally positioned to provide responsive, best-in-class services for customers based in Canada," said Vericlaim CEO Michael Arbour.
With the companies' caring countsSM approach, the Sedgwick and Vericlaim Canada teams will focus on delivering comprehensive claim solutions and ensuring high-quality customer service from start to finish.
"The options for claims administration and loss adjusting services have been limited for businesses in Canada," said Sedgwick President and CEO Dave North. "By investing in the continued growth of Sedgwick and Vericlaim in Canada, we can partner with Canadian businesses to enhance their programs and expand the claims solutions available to them."
