Sedgwick Claims Management Services has made several leadership appointments for its UK business following the acquisition of Cunningham Lindsey.

Paul White, former chief operating officer of Cunningham Lindsey UK, has been appointed as COO of Sedgwick's UK business.

David Aiston, the former director of strategic business development and head of global specialty markets of Cunningham Lindsey UK, has been appointed Sedgwick’s UK head of strategic business development.

The former director of projects, risk and compliance for Cunningham Lindsey UK Mark Henderson has been named UK head of project, risk and compliance of Sedgwick.

Finally, Jon Sutton, former financial director of Cunningham Lindsey UK, has been named chief financial officer for the UK.

Together this senior leadership team will report to Stewart Steel, who was recently named Sedgwick's CEO for the UK.

“I am immensely proud to have the responsibility of leading Sedgwick’s UK business and am confident the new team and its focus on growth and service excellence will provide Sedgwick a strong foundation for future growth,” Steel said. “We are embarking on a new era as we look to combine two fantastic businesses that are rich in tradition, experience and expertise and bring them together under the Sedgwick banner.”

Sedgwick has also named Adrian Cartwright-Bain as leader of the commercial division, Neil Gibson as leader of the private clients and liability divisions, and Jane Lewis as leader of its tailored solutions division. Together they are the leaders of Sedgwick's operational team for the UK business.

“We have a very strong operational team combining the best of both businesses,” White said. “I am looking forward to working closely with Stewart and my operational colleagues as we build and drive Sedgwick’s growth in the UK.”
