McLarens, the global loss adjuster specialising in complex, commercial and niche markets, announced today several management changes in its Asian operations. According to McLarens’ Regional Managing Director – Asia, Russell Henderson, “The changes in Thailand and China allow us to make some strategic personnel shifts in the region. The McLarens team already offers deep expertise and we are able to reposition people in new and expanded roles, while also attracting top external talent to our team.”
Robert Lea, Managing Director, and Tim Bain, Technical Director, have advised of their desire to step-down from their current positions, effective 1st January 2019, and 1st November 2018, respectively.
Robert Lea will continue supporting the McLarens Thailand operation by assuming a new consultancy role, which will involve handling directly or overseeing and supporting the servicing of technical claims in Thailand.
We are pleased to announce Tim Hollinrake will assume the role of Managing Director for McLarens’ Thailand operations on 1st January 2019. Mr. Hollinrake, who has been serving as McLarens’ Managing Director in China for the past year, is familiar with the Thailand market, having worked in Thailand from 2006 to 2015, before relocating to China. He specialises in Liability/Casualty claims and will handle directly and oversee complex claims.
Mike Lobl will join our Thailand office as Technical Director, starting 1st November 2018, to fill the vacancy left by Tim Bain. Mr. Lobl joins us from an international adjuster in Thailand and brings vast experience to the role. He has strong technical skills and is culturally aware of living and working in Thailand. He will work closely with Tim Hollinrake.
With Tim Hollinrake relocating to Thailand, we are pleased to announce Lytton Li will be promoted to the role of Managing Director for our operations in China. Mr. Li is currently National Manager for Complex Claims, as well as manager of McLarens’ largest Chinese operation in Guangzhou. He has worked for McLarens for six years and is well-respected by clients in China. Mr. Li will assume control of the China operation from mid-November 2018, based in Guangzhou.
Our operations in Shanghai will be managed jointly by James Wang and Natalie Xu, both of whom are experienced and well-respected in the China markets. Mr. Wang will head our Property and Business Interruption team, and Ms. Xu, our Casualty team.
