Cunningham Lindsey, a leading provider of claims management services to the insurance market, has announced the departure of a top executive in a key market in Europe.
Ulrich Mann, Cunningham Lindsey’s managing director in Germany, has left the company after 21 years and has been replaced by Tobias Walter.
Mann has made “outstanding” contribution to the business over the past two decades, according to Jeroen Fröhlich, the firm’s CEO for continental Europe.
“He has played a pivotal role in transforming our German operations into the successful and well-respected loss adjusting firm it is today. We are sorry to see him go, but will continue to work closely with him,” Fröhlich said.
Walter, Mann’s successor, will oversee the implementation of new services supported by innovative technologies.
Walter, who joined Cunningham Lindsey in January 2016 as commercial director for continental Europe, will retain some of his old responsibilities as part of his new role.
“He brings a fresh perspective to our business, and the combination of his drive and market knowledge makes the future of Cunningham Lindsey in Germany very exciting,” Fröhlich said of Walter.
Walter said Cunningham Lindsey has a “very firm foundation” to both extend its existing business and add new products and services.
“This will enable us to respond to changing market conditions and needs of our clients,” he said.
