McLarens Aviation, the largest provider of survey and loss adjusting services to the global aviation industry, is preparing to launch an aviation Liability product line. A five-strong team will join the global aviation specialist on 13th August, from GAB Robins. The move will allow McLarens Aviation to build upon the skills of its existing, six-strong, Legal Services team, to offer an enhanced portfolio of liability services to the global aviation market through the development of a dedicated Liability product line.
Handling high value, complex liability claims throughout the world – primarily airline passenger injury, cargo and airport operators liability claims (personal injury, property and aircraft damage) as well as claims relating to ground handling operations – the team will be led by Gareth Jones as Head of Aviation Liability. Jones, who has over 25 years adjusting experience, including 16 years in aviation adjusting, will work alongside Perry Mansfield, Senior Liability Adjuster with significant aviation adjusting experience, Barry Diamond, Liability Adjuster specialising in personal injury with many years of aviation adjusting experience, Matt Budd, Liability Adjuster specialising in personal injury claims with hands-on aviation adjusting experience and Mark Woodrow, Liability Adjuster. All members of the team regularly handle all manner of aviation liability losses including, but not limited to, Airport Operators, Airport Service Providers, Airline Passenger, Airline Cargo; Gareth Jones also specialises in providing Operational Risk Surveys.
This is the latest in a string of hires to be announced by McLarens Aviation. In the past year alone the business has taken on new recruits in Canada (Harmit Sangha), Brazil (Carlos Alberto da Conceicao) and Mexico (Mario Campos), as well as announcing new offices in Vancouver and Brasilia.
Nigel Minett, Managing Director, McLarens Aviation, commented: “This is an area of the market which we’ve had our eye on for some time and we’re delighted to be launching our aviation Liability product line in August to sit alongside our long established Claims Management, Risk Management, Asset Management and Legal Services lines. To date, the majority of our adjusting work has focused on the hull side; liability is a distinct area of the aviation adjusting market and one in which we now plan to expand our offering on a global basis. Gareth and his team are seen as leaders in this market and as such are the perfect fit for McLarens Aviation.”
