Sedgwick, a global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits, and integrated business solutions, has announced that Jane Tutoki is to become an independent member of its Board of Directors.
Tutoki has more than 30 years’ insurance leadership experience and most recently served as Vice Chair of Sedgwick, which she joined last year through the company’s acquisition of Cunningham Lindsey.
In this role, she managed the integration of the two companies, while overseeing many of Sedgwick’s corporate departments, including colleague resources, legal, IT and public relations.
Prior to this, she spent four years as Cunningham Lindsey’s Global CEO, leading the international organisation and positioning them to join with Sedgwick in 2018.
Tutoki also spent several years running in-house staff counsel operations before leading commercial claims operations at The Hartford, where she gained experience working with various insurance lines and global carriers.
Other leadership positions she has held include Global Head of Property and Casualty Claims operations for AIG, head of the Americas region and Executive Director of Global Insurance for Xchanging, and Global Chief Claims Officer for Zurich.
“Jane’s professional experience and perspective are truly unparalleled, and I’m so pleased that she’s become the first female member of Sedgwick’s board of directors,” said Dave North, Chairman and CEO of Sedgwick.
“Jane’s legal background, knowledge of the global claims landscape and understanding of the Sedgwick organization makes her a perfect addition to our board,” he added.
“I am honored to be the first woman on Sedgwick’s board and humbled by the opportunity to join such an exemplary group,” Tutoki said.
“I look forward to continuing to provide counsel to Sedgwick’s executive team and to supporting the company’s ongoing growth,” she continued.
“This new role will allow me to remain engaged in broadening Sedgwick’s capacity to provide end-to-end services to clients around the world and to take care of more people in more places than ever before.”
