Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyd’s, a leading UK non-life insurer, has promoted Mark Graves to Deputy Head of Claims.
Reporting to Simon Catt, Head of Claims, Graves will concentrate on large loss coordination and claims strategy development across the Syndicate. He will also retain his current management responsibility for claims emanating from property, engineering and construction works classes of business.
Graves joined Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyd’s from XL ten years ago and was appointed Claims Manager in 2004. Since joining the insurance industry in 1989, he has successfully handled multi-million pound settlements for many clients and latterly has been actively involved in leading and directing the insurer’s response following worldwide natural catastrophe claims.
Simon Catt, Head of Claims at Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyds’s said: “It is always very rewarding to be able to promote from within and I am, therefore, delighted to appoint someone of Mark’s professionalism and talent to the role of Deputy Head of Claims.
“In his new role, he will work with me and the Syndicate’s senior management team to set the claims department’s strategy and deliver a responsive service for our brokers and their clients.”
