McLarens adds to global management team
Global loss adjuster McLarens has appointed two executives to help position the business “for continued expansion into complex, commercial and niche insurance markets across the globe.”

Ross Landsbaum has been appointed chief financial officer and Adam Weiner has been tapped to serve as senior vice-president of IT strategy & operations.

Landsbaum has over 30 years of experience in business finance, particularly human capital business. He has extensive experience in the areas of worldwide expansion and operations, systems and processes, and debt and equity markets. Prior to joining McLarens, he served as the CFO of ReachLocal. Landsbaum has held C-level executive positions at MacAndrews and Forbes’ Panavision, as well as at various media businesses following nine years at Arthur Anderson.

Weiner was previously with SterlingBackcheck, with 20 years of experience in data center, cloud computing, infrastructure, IT operations, as well as security and application development. He has a Master of Science, Information Technology degree and a Bachelor of Technology, Computer / Information Technology Administration and Management qualification from Purdue University.

“Our goal is to offer new solutions and service lines for our clients worldwide. We strategically invest to build scale through strengthening the firm’s people and infrastructure,” said McLarens CEO Gary Brown. “By adding Ross and Adam to our team, McLarens gains exceptional knowledge and talent to support the growth agenda and leverage technology. I very much look forward to working with them.”

“McLarens has been consistent in its drive for growth and in its ability to launch, acquire and expand new service lines. I am excited to join this team that has been executing strongly as one of the premier providers in the space,” commented Landsbaum.

“McLarens is a practitioner-led business, but technology has a major role to play in augmenting that approach particularly when it comes to driving innovation in our claims management systems, data reporting and analytics capabilities,” added Weiner.
