Bob Foster to lead Lloyd's strategy for Crawford

Atlanta-based Crawford & Company, a provider of claims management suits to the risk management and insurance industry as well as self-insured entities, has appointed Insurance industry executive Bob Foster to direct strategy, for its relationship with Lloyd’s of London.

Mr. Foster recently retired as group director of claims at Brit Insurance, an international general insurance and reinsurance group, a position he was holding since 2003.

Jeffrey Bowman, president and chief executive officer of Crawford, said: Bob has been a leading proponent of change and development in the insurance industry worldwide for many years. Under his chairmanship, the Lloyd’s Market Claims Committee made substantial progress towards the transformation of claims management processes. With his expertise and market knowledge, we expect him to be a great asset in implementing our strategic plan for the Lloyd’s London market.
