Gallagher Bassett has appointed Ruth Korotcoff as new general manager for South Australian workers’ compensation.
Based in GB’s Adelaide office, Korotcoff joins the claims management firm from Optus, where she was a director responsible for customer care and technical teams supporting SMB customers. Before that, she served in senior roles for IAG, CGU Insurance, and GIO workers’ compensation (NSW), and has spent the last decade as a board member for the South Australia Motor Accident Commission.
Korotcoff has also held a variety of board director and committee positions specialising in insurance, finance, corporate strategy, and regulatory functions.
“Ruth’s significant claims and customer service experience, as well as her leadership capabilities, position her perfectly to come into this role and lead our South Australian operation,” said Brad Smith, chief operating officer. “I’m genuinely excited to have Ruth onboard.”
