A US-based global claims services provider has expanded its footprint in Australia with a new office and appointment.
McLarens adds to its existing Australian operations in Brisbane, Melbourne, Newcastle, and Sydney, with a new property loss adjusting division in Perth and the appointment of Desmond Lee as executive loss adjuster.
Lee is a chartered loss adjuster and qualified chartered accountant with a wealth of experience in major loss across a range of industries. He will commence the new role on July 16, and will be based in the Perth office, located in Fremantle.
“Desmond is a highly qualified and respected claims professional,” said Martyn Wicht, McLarens regional director for Australasia. “It is very pleasing to see the company expand to Western Australia with such a high-calibre individual.”
“Clients have been looking forward to our expansion in Western Australia and Desmond’s appointment further strengthens McLarens’ high quality offering in the complex and major loss property adjusting field,” said Stuart Crofton, head of property in Australia.
