The Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA) has announced the appointment of six new members to its LMA Claims Committee (LMACC) – the team will advise the LMA Board on strategic claims matters and provide leadership and direction to Lloyd’s claims community.
Nick Sinfield, Group Head of Claims at Tokio Marine Kiln; Sheel Sawhney, Group Head of Claims at Brit; David Miller, Chief Claims Officer – International and London Markets at XL Catlin and; Tony Rai, Head of London Market Claims at Hiscox, have been appointed to the LMA Claims Committee (LMACC).
Simon White, Head of Claims at Apollo Syndicate Management Limited and Simon Catt, Head of Claims at MS Amlin have both been reelected to the committee.
All six appointees began their advisory roles on the board on January 31st, and will be serving two-year terms.
Lee Elliston, Manager, Claims and Delegated Authority Operations, LMA said; “I would like to thank Ashley Lawrence and Sharon Long for their contribution to the LMACC, both of whom have completed their term.
“I would also welcome and thank our new members for their willingness to participate in the LMACC.
“The LMACC will continue to promote the position of claims in the London market whilst creating opportunities to enhance the Lloyd’s claims offering and provide service excellence.”
The LMACC board’s main trajectory for the following year is to assess ways predictive analytics and robotics could reduce costs for claims handling and adjustment processes, and provide service improvements and other efficiency gains.
The members will also continue collaborations with Lloyd’s, the IUA and LIIBA on the Single Agreement initiative – an undertaking that could assist London carriers (Lloyd’s and non-Lloyd’s) in reducing the number of agreement parties involved in low value claims.
