0 0

Clements Worldwide is pleased to announce the launch of its Dubai operation, the first on-the-ground location in the MENA region. With offices currently in Washington D.C. and London, Clements extends its global presence with the addition of an office in Dubai’s International Financial Centre (DIFC).

The new sales office will expand Clements’ MENA client base and extend the delivery of commercial cover, such as the sought-after WorldAuto international fleet program. Likewise, Clements’ globally-recognized Specialty Risk insurance products, such as coverage against Political Violence and Kidnap & Ransom, are ideal for the growing number of global corporations, security companies, NGOs and even international schools operating in countries such as Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Jordan, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Andy Grimes, the newly appointed director of Clements Dubai, brings extensive first-hand experience in the region’s insurance market to the company’s newest operation. He comments, “The MENA region is one of Clements’ largest markets as far as our client base is concerned. Customers in this region face constantly-evolving risks, and we aim to deliver customized solutions to these unique challenges. The new Dubai office will therefore enable us to better service our existing and expanding client base as well as elevate our organizational profile on a global scale.”

Mr. Grimes will report directly to Dan Tuman, Clements’ senior vice president, who reinforces the potential of the Dubai operation:  “This expansion is critical to our global strategy, and while we’ve been successful in the Middle East and North Africa region for decades, there still exists an enormous amount of untapped potential. I look forward to working closely with Andy and to our continued growth in 2013 as we continue to provide protection to our valued customers in this important part of the world.”
