Sedgwick has announced the appointment of Elizabeth Francy Demaret (pictured above) as president of carrier services.
In her new role, Demaret will direct the company’s offerings catering to the needs of property, casualty and benefits insurance companies in more than 80 countries.
Demaret has more than 35 years of experience in broking, underwriting and claims management. She has been with Sedgwick for 11 years, most recently serving as president of specialty operations. Prior to taking that role, Demaret held various leadership positions within the company, including chief of staff and executive vice president of carrier relations and managing director of international and carrier development.
“Elizabeth is uniquely suited to step into this role, given her in-depth understanding of all aspects of insurance, international markets and product development strategies,” said Mike Arbour, CEO of Sedgwick. “She is an integral part of our leadership team, and I know she will apply her wealth of experience to driving greater efficiency, finding proactive solutions, and enhancing how we serve insurance companies.”
“I am grateful for the opportunity to continue working with Sedgwick’s product line leaders to develop solutions for the complex market dynamics and challenges our clients face,” Demaret said. “Our robust offerings, data analytics and technology platforms are unmatched in their capacity to support carriers’ unique and evolving needs.”
Demaret is an alumna of Insurance Business America’s Elite Women in Insurance list. She also served as the first female chair of the World Federation of Insurance Intermediaries.
Earlier this year, Sedgwick announced the launch of Sedgwick Government Solutions, a new business venture aimed at expanding its presence in the federal market.
