West of England’s new claims handler
(Posted on 24/09/19)
The West of England P&I Club, a leading mutual marine insurer, is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Claims Handler, Lucie Ryan. She will be based in the Club’s Greek office which has just celebrated its 50th Anniversary.
Lucie has a degree in Consumer Marketing from Manchester Metropolitan University and, for 10 years, worked at Clyde & Co’s Piraeus office where she qualified as a Legal Executive and gained extensive experience in admiralty. More recently Lucie, who is a fluent Greek speaker, was employed by another International Group Club, handling P&I claims for its Greek Members.
This new appointment will further strengthen the Greek office which currently handles claims for approximately one quarter of the Club’s members.
Ian Clarke, Head of Claims & Regional Director (Hellas), said: “We are delighted that Lucie has joined the office to enhance our claims service provision. She brings particular strength to the “wet” side of our work and will be handling a wide variety of P&I and FD&D claims.”
The West of England is a leading mutual marine insurer providing its worldwide membership of shipowners, charterers and operators with liability insurance and related services. The Club, which celebrates 50 years of operations in Greece this year, provides its Members with outstanding service through a network of global offices. It is rated A- by S&P as a reflection of its strong capital position and both the Club and its Managers are authorised by the Commissariat aux Assurances, Luxembourg.
