QuestGates has strengthened its major loss team with the appointment of Allan Hunter ACII ACILA.
Allan joins the business following a stint in New Zealand where he handled multi-million pound losses following the Christchurch earthquake in February 2011. Prior to this, Allan spent 14 years at Cunningham Lindsey managing a caseload of the larger and more complex commercial claims.
QuestGates has considerably enhanced its major loss capability both in terms of coverage and skill base over recent months. Allan’s appointment follows on from two additions to the team at the end of last year, with Graham Hay ACII FCILA and Bob Mockridge ACII FCILA joining in Scotland and the North West respectively.
Paul Thomas, Major Loss Director at QuestGates, comments: “We are delighted to have secured the services of Allan. He has an excellent reputation with insurers and brokers, particularly in the Midlands where he will be based. His breadth of experience, market credibility and appetite to help develop our major loss reputation is significant. His appointment combined with those of Graham and Bob means that our capability in this sector has been enhanced across a number of key strategic geographic areas.”
Ross MacPherson, Property Director at QuestGates, adds: “This development dovetails nicely with several recent business wins in the major loss sector comprising panel appointments and corporate, broker and housing association nominations. This new business spans both commercial and household sectors, the latter being as a direct result of Advantage – our bespoke household major loss service.”
