Specialty insurance MGA Corvus Insurance has announced the promotion of James Berry to Chief Claims Officer.
Berry, who previously served as Corvus London Markets’ Claims Team Lead, will now manage the in-house Claims teams at Corvus on a global scale.
The new role is also a first of its kind for Corvus, as the company continues to grow its international footprint.
“I’m excited by the opportunity to manage the Claims function at Corvus in a now global capacity. Corvus continues to innovate and provide immense value to its growing policyholder base, and I look forward to having a larger hand in making sure we’re keeping our policyholders safe,” said Berry.
In addition to Berry’s five year tenure with Corvus London Markets and Tarian Underwriting, his 20+ year career has included a focus on North American casualty claims in the Lloyd’s market.
Beginning his career at JLT Specialty Ltd. as a claims advocate, Berry progressed into senior claims roles at both brokerages and syndicates in the London market.
“We are thrilled to welcome James, one of the most experienced claims leaders in the industry, into his new role where he’ll guide Corvus into its next stage of growth in global claims,” said Madhu Tadikonda, President of Corvus Insurance.
“With James’ experience already having handled thousands of cyber and tech claims to date, we look forward to the expertise he will bring in shaping Corvus’s global claims processes into the future.”
