Neon has completed the build-out of its claims team with the recent appointments of Gavin Coley as technical head of claims and James Sterling as claims manager for professional indemnity & financial lines.
“Claims Director Sharon Long initiated the team build after joining from XL Catlin in May 2016, as part of Neon’s strategy to build a best-in-class, client-centric claims function,” said Neon in a statement.
Coley joined Neon from MS Amlin in February and brings with him over 25 years’ experience in both technical and managerial roles. He is a well-respected claims leader who has contributed to multiple London market sector groups including as chairman of the Property Insurance Group and member of the Binder Authority Strategic Claims Group and Lloyd’s Market Strategic Claims Group.
Sterling joined Neon in March and is a UK-qualified solicitor by background, having practiced law at international insurance law firm CMS Cameron McKenna before holding a senior claims role at XL Catlin. His role will focus on financial institutions, directors & officers and professional indemnity.
“Neon represents a vibrant, refreshed business which focuses on delivering what its brokers and clients want and need. We have invested significantly to ensure excellent claims service is front and center of this renewed philosophy,” commented Long.
Long’s “carefully selected, high caliber claims team” includes claims managers James Crawford and James Berry, the company continued.
