We are committed to ensuring we meet that demand by continuing to invest in recruiting and training high-grade adjusters and providing market-leading global solutions across all specialty lines. It is a privilege to be leading this team of dedicated professionals and I look forward to further enhancing the level of service we provide to our clients.”
