Joe Pendle, the managing director of UK & Europe for Verisk Insurance Solutions, chaired this year’s judging panel.

He was joined by Anthony Hughes, the former Horwich Farrelly chief executive and founder of strategic consultancy Jackson Hughes; Andrew Twambley, a partner at Amelans Solicitors and director of InjuryLawyers4U; Mark Hewitt, the managing director of Rebmark (last year’s Innovator of the Year winner); Alan Soutar, chair of the I Love Claims Home and Commercial advisory board; Peter Staddon, the managing director at MGAA; Kevin Shanahan, the founder of Synetics Solutions; and Julie Gowland, the managing director of Three x 8.

The annual Claims Innovation Awards celebrate how companies, firms, teams and individuals from across the insurance, legal services, claims management and associated industries’ landscape constantly find new ways to improve their services and the claims experience for everyone.
