Sedgwick reveals UK leadership following Cunningham Lindsay deal

Sedgwick Claims Management Services has appointed Ian Muress, Stewart Steel and Paul White to leadership roles for its combined business operations in the UK.

This follows the finalisation of Sedwick's acquisition of Cunningham Lindsey.

Muress, international CEO of Sedgwick, will be based in London, and provide executive oversight for all business operations outside the United States and Canada.

Prior to joining Sedgwick, Muress served as CEO of international operations for a large global adjusting firm, where, over the course of his extended tenure, he ascended the company’s ranks to global executive leader.

Steel supports Muress in the management of the UK business as UK CEO. Steel has over 35 years of experience in the loss adjusting business, serving in various leadership roles. Since 2009, Steel has had responsibility for the leadership and direction of the UK operations of Vericlaim, a Sedgwick company.

White serves as chief operating officer, UK, following nine years as COO at Cunningham Lindsey.

“As we expand our global operations with a growing footprint, improved capabilities and broader technical resources, our focus remains clearly on our clients, and we are pleased to have veterans like Stewart and Paul leading our UK operations in delivering outstanding service to clients,” Muress said. “I look forward to working with them and the rest of the management team to ensure we capitalise on the opportunities in the market and enhance services and value for our customers and industry partners.”
