COPENHAGEN, 8 September 2022 – Sedgwick, a leading global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions, today announced it has acquired full ownership of Sedgwick Leif Hansen A/S in Denmark; the company was previously a minority shareholder.
The acquisition reflects Sedgwick’s commitment to investing in the Nordic region and positions the company well for continued strategic growth. The team in Denmark will also be able to leverage the technical and environmental expertise of Sedgwick’s EFI Global division in Europe in supporting clients throughout the Nordics.
Sedgwick Leif Hansen A/S is Denmark’s largest and leading provider of insurance services, including loss adjusting, third-party administration (TPA), workplace accident prevention and management, health care, construction consulting and more. Because Sedgwick Leif Hansen has operated as part of the Sedgwick family since 2018, colleagues and clients will see no change as a result of the ownership transition.
“Sedgwick Leif Hansen has an outstanding reputation for excellence in the market, and we are excited for the next chapter of growth. We look forward to continuing to work with our partners across the business to innovate and meet client needs,” said Stewart Steel, CEO for Sedgwick in continental Europe, the Middle East and Africa (CEMEA). “In our work together, we have witnessed first-hand the high-quality professionalism, technical expertise and outstanding client service that have brought Sedgwick Leif Hansen to prominence in the Danish and Nordic insurance markets.”
Sedgwick Leif Hansen founder Christian Leif Hansen will remain at the helm of Sedgwick’s operation in Denmark, as well as assume a senior role in the company’s Nordic leadership team.
“This agreement will help ensure that we continue to build on our strength and reputation in Denmark and in the Nordic market,” Leif Hansen said. “We have worked closely with Sedgwick for many years and believe that full integration with them will enable us to provide the best possible service to our customers, as well as support further growth based on their global resources, reach and expertise.”
The Danish management team and all in-country colleagues will operate under the Sedgwick name.
