Charles Taylor Adjusting (CTA), a leading international loss adjusting business focused on commercial claims, has promoted Andy Rice to Managing Director, Property, Casualty, Technical & Special Risks for the UK, Europe and Singapore. He succeeds Andrew Jackson, the longstanding Managing Director of the business, who has decided to stand aside to concentrate full time on his financial lines claims work, business development in existing and new sectors and developing the next generation of loss adjusters, three areas that give him the most satisfaction.
Andy Rice joined CTA in 2008 and was appointed Deputy Managing Director of Property, Casualty, Technical & Special Risks in 2015. He is an expert in complex international product liability and recall losses and handles a broad spectrum of claims, including environmental and public liability claims for global corporations.
Andrew Jackson has been Managing Director of Property, Casualty, Technical & Special Risks for seventeen years, a period where CTA’s capabilities in the sector have grown significantly. Under his tenure, CTA has gained market leadership positions in a number of specialist sectors including financial institutions, construction and engineering and high net worth claims.
Damian Ely, Chief Executive Officer, Charles Taylor Adjusting said:
“I would like to pay tribute to Andrew Jackson for his outstanding contribution to CTA. His passion for the business has enabled us to grow our capabilities and extend our reach across Property, Casualty and Special Risks markets. He has established CTA as a leader in the financial lines sector and has made a huge commitment to recruiting and developing the next generation of loss adjusters at a time when many firms were underinvesting in professional development. I am delighted that we will continue to benefit from his experience and expertise as a director of the business.
“I am very pleased that Andy Rice is taking the role of Managing Director. We have focused on succession planning and Andy’s promotion provides us with the continuity of leadership, stability and consistent approach that our clients expect.”
Andy Rice, Managing Director, Property, Casualty, Technical & Special Risks, said:
“This is an exciting time for CTA. We can build on our strong foundations in the Property, Casualty, Technical & Special Risks market and continue to expand and develop our capabilities. I will focus on further growing the business by both recruiting sector specialists and by creating more opportunities for our talented younger adjusters to develop their careers. We offer a professionally challenging and inclusive working environment, enabling us to deliver an exceptional service to our clients.”
Andrew Jackson, Managing Director, Property, Casualty, Technical & Special Risks, said:
“I am delighted that Andy Rice will be taking over from me as Managing Director, we have worked closely together for many years and I know he has the skills and ability to further build our business in the Property, Casualty and Special Risks markets. I felt the time was right for me to step back from day to day management. This will allow me to focus my attention on my own and our expanded team’s financial lines case load, training and developing our newer adjusters and spending more time listening to and responding to our clients’ needs, all areas that I greatly enjoy and where I believe I can continue to add most value.”
