Woodgate & Clark recruits specialist adjuster to major and complex loss team

Posted on 28 March 2022

Loss adjuster Woodgate & Clark has appointed experienced adjuster Kevin Dinsdale to its  major and complex loss team. He begins his new role on 10th March 2022 and will be based in Leicester. 

Dinsdale, who joins the business from Crawford, has a dual reporting line to Nick Michell, the Director of Major Loss, for technical guidance, and Operations Director Graeme Fitzpatrick for overall service and delivery. 
He will handle a mixed portfolio of major and complex material damage and business interruption claims.  
Commenting on his new role, Kevin said: “Woodgate & Clark has a great reputation for investing in and nurturing its loss adjusters, and I was also attracted by their commitment to individual client servicing so that clients feel they are in the hands of experienced people who really understand each claim.”

“Working for a specialist business is highly attractive, and I was impressed by Woodgate & Clarks commitment to fostering a family culture throughout all levels, including a long-standing focus on training and development.  Being part of a smaller team will enable me to make a visible contribution to the overall success of the business.” 

Graeme Fitzpatrick said: “We are determined to build out our major and complex loss adjusting team by attracting the best UK talent.” 

“Experience really counts in our profession, as it gives our insurer clients and their customers peace of mind that complex cases are being handled by highly qualified experts with the appropriate skill set, both in terms of qualifications but also excellent soft skills to deal empathetically with clients who may have lost everything.” 

He added: “We remain keen to talk to experienced adjusters and surveyors looking for their next career move and wanting to be part of a dynamic, experienced and innovative team.” 

Prior to joining Woodgate & Clark, Kevin spent just under 14 years with Crawford and Co. (previously GAB Robins) and is both a Member of the Royal Institution of Chartered (MRICS) Surveyors and an Associate of the Chartered Institution of Loss Adjusters.
