Stewart Steel is the Chief Executive Officer of Sedgwick UK which is the newly branded organisation comprising of Cunningham Lindsey UK and Vericlaim UK. A major priority for Stewart post merger is the successful integration of the two businesses as well as a continued focus on growth and development.
Stewart has 38 years of loss adjusting and claims handling experience. Prior to setting up Vericlaim in the UK, Stewart sat on the board of Capita McLarens where, in 2005, he led the creation of Teceris Corporate and Complex Adjusting, the company that was subsequently to become the first acquisition made by Vericlaim UK. Before then, Stewart spent 19 years at Thomas Howell Group (latterly Crawford) where he held a number of senior leadership, management and technical roles.
During Stewart’s career he has seen the devastating effects that flooding and storm damage can inflict on businesses and the wider community and understands how important it is that businesses are supported so they can continue to trade effectively, even when the worst does happen.
