Crawford & Co expands its offering in New Zealand

Crawford & Company, the independent provider of claims management and outsourcing, has welcomed a new network partner in New Zealand.

Crawford will now be represented in New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands by Godfrey and Company.

Crawford currently has 43 offices in Australia, and Tim Jarman, Crawford’s president in Australia, said the partnership was a logical step for the company as it looks to increase its footprint.

"Our global footprint and empowered teams give us the reach and agility to meet the changing needs of the industry,” he said. “This new arrangement will optimise our presence in key locations, facilitate further growth and help us restore and enhance lives, businesses and communities in both Australia and New Zealand.”

Jarman called Godfrey and Company “one of New Zealand’s premier loss adjusting and claims management companies,” highlighting its commitment to technical expertise, quality, service excellence and innovation.

John Beckett, chief executive officer at Godfrey and Company, said: “The ability to expand and enhance our respective local operations while capitalising on Crawford's global strength, will send a very positive signal to our international and local clients.”
