Global claims firm Thomas Miller Claims Management given Queen’s Award


By Lucy Hook

Risk management consultancy Thomas Miller Claims Management (TMCM) has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category for a second time, it was announced today.

TMCM first won the award, which recognises outstanding achievements by UK companies in growing international earnings, in 2014 for strong international growth.

For its latest win, TMCM was recognised for increasing overseas earnings by over 60% in a three-year period, and posting “consistently healthy profits” despite significant investment in diversifying its range of services and expanding its office network, the firm said in a release.

“Exporting services to global markets has always been at the heart of what Thomas Miller does,” CEO Peter Jackson said. “The recent shifting and decentralisation in marine and logistics markets is just part of an on-going global evolution – TMCM will evolve along with it, as we always have.”

The firm was created in 2007 to bring claims handling, risk management and casualty response expertise to the Thomas Miller group, which has been providing insurance and professional services to the maritime and transport sectors since 1885.

As well as investing in the creation of a marine and logistics law firm, TM Law, TMCM has also expanded its marine medical offering, creating partnerships to offer a marine-specific advisory and case management service under its Bluemed brand.

“We will keep listening to our clients, identifying what the market wants and where the existing provision is lacking,” director Stephen Hunt said. “Once we’ve done that, we have to trust our instincts, and find ways to do it better.”

The Award was conferred on April 21, the Queen’s birthday, and will be recognised officially at a reception at Buckingham Palace later in the year.

Jackson added: “We’ve invested heavily, to diversify the offering and expand our footprint - we’re into a new phase of effort and opportunities. We have taken the same approach we took at the start and we expect to see the same results. I want to see us repeat the performance, and the success, and I don’t think many would bet against us.”
