LONDON, 28 March 2022 – Sedgwick, a leading global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions, announced the strategic hire of Jon Mainwaring as client director for its home emergency division in the UK.
Mainwaring will focus on growing Sedgwick’s UK home emergency business and overseeing key accounts for this part of the business. He will work closely with the UKA247 team following the acquisition earlier this month. The transaction advanced Sedgwick’s ability to offer claims estimation and complete repairs solutions without the need for duplicated efforts — giving customers and their policyholders a one-source solution for home emergency through to property damage claims.
Mainwaring brings to Sedgwick over 25 years of insurance experience, the majority of which have been spent in B2B client-facing roles for leading general insurance companies. He has significant expertise in managing key partner relationships, business development and strategic projects.
“Sedgwick’s home emergency offering is growing rapidly, and our recent acquisition of UKA247 will enable us to further improve the customer experience for property claims,” said Nicola Dryden, Sedgwick chief client officer for the UK. “Jon brings to Sedgwick significant experience implementing new technologies and propositions to provide customers with rapid, expert care during urgent claim events.”
“Home emergency coverage makes a real difference to a customer and their family when a crisis occurs,” Mainwaring said. “I look forward to driving the growth of Sedgwick’s offering and the ways we can apply innovation and technology to taking care of people when they need us most.”
