McLarens, the global loss adjusting firm specialising in complex and commercial claims, has expanded its ‘All Ireland’ offering – which includes offices in Belfast, Derry and Dublin – announcing the appointment of a trio of adjusters and the opening of a new office in Cork.
The new Cork operation – its 15th office in the UK and Ireland – will be led by Alan Browne (ACII), who has over 14 years of loss adjusting experience dealing with both local and London market claims. Alan joins from OSG, where he was a Regional Manager overseeing offices in Cork and Waterford and managing a team of 25. A well-known adjuster in the Munster region, Alan specialises in large and complex loss with a particular focus on Personal Injury, Contractors Liability, Products Liability and Transportation. The Cork office will be based at Cork Airport Business Park.
McLarens has also expanded its adjusting team in Belfast with the recruitment of Russell Adair and Deborah Lloyd:
- Russell, who has joined from TopMark Loss Adjusters, focuses on commercial property claims with a particular specialism in building defect analysis, cost appraisals and the building regulations. A qualified building surveyor, Adair’s previous experience includes working for a London-based chartered surveying practice and in private practice.
- Deborah, also joining from TopMark, specialises in the investigation of EL/PL claims. Lloyd was previously in banking before embarking on a loss adjusting career.
Steven Wallace, Executive Director responsible for Ireland, commented: “Until now we have serviced the Republic from our Dublin office – with assistance from both Belfast and Derry – but Cork, being Ireland’s second largest city, is one we have been looking at for some time. It was important to have an established, local adjuster, so we’re delighted to have found someone of Alan’s caliber and contacts spearheading this. Cork completes our geographic coverage of Ireland and we hope will mark a new phase in what has, so far, been a hugely successful story.
Wallace added, “I also welcome Russell and Deborah to our Belfast office. As an ‘All Ireland operation’ we’re continuing to see demand for technical loss adjusting services on both sides of the border and it’s crucial that we can continue to attract the best local talent to meet this demand.”
