York International Brings In Alistair Jacob To Spearhead Growth

LONDON, April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- York International, a subsidiary of U.S.-based York Risk Services Group and a part of York Specialized Loss Adjusting, has appointed Alistair Jacob Managing Director. York International, which is based in London, provides specialist home foreign and international loss adjusting services for Lloyd's and London market as well as regional insurers and reinsurers.


Jacob will be responsible for the strategic business development across all territories outside of North America. He will be building on York International's recent expansion into Latin America and the Caribbean following the acquisition of Axis International Adjusters.  In particular, he will focus on developing the business' international footprint in conjunction with BC Johnson Associates, a York subsidiary that specializes in the energy markets. Jacob will be based in York International's head office in London.

Jacob has over 25 years' experience in the loss adjusting sector and expertise in the development and delivery of services for the Lloyd's and London markets and regional insurers and reinsurers in territories including Latin America and the Caribbean.  He has also held roles within Axis International Adjusters and a global claims operation.

Commenting on Jacob's appointment, Danny Miller, EVP, York Risk Services Group, and President of the York Specialized Loss Adjusting, said, "Alistair brings with him extensive loss adjusting and business development expertise, and is ideally suited to drive our expansion plans. While his focus will be growing our international platform, he will also assist York and BC Johnson Associates with their growth plans related to the London and international markets."

Commenting on York International's plans, Jacob said, "We see clear strategic opportunities to build a strong international presence, taking full advantage of the expanded range of services and geographical spread that now exists within the York companies.  Having direct access to York's U.S. capabilities and energy team will add depth and strength to the international services that we can offer our clients."
