Airclaims appoints new MD following merger with McLarens


Airclaims has appointed Nigel Minett in a newly created managing director position.

Airclaims has appointed Nigel Minett – a veteran McLarens adjuster with 36 years’ experience in the loss adjusting industry – as managing director, after the provider of claims, risk and asset management services to aviation industry mutually agreed that CEO Mark Hunter would leave the company.

The announcement comes 18 months after its merger with McLarens, the global loss adjusting group with a niche focus on complex and commercial claims, and is part of the post-merger review of the McLarens group structure.

Vern Chalfant, president and CEO of McLarens, said: “We are an operations-led, rather than a management-led, business and Airclaims now requires a different set of expertise. Nigel Minett is someone who I have worked closely with over the years and I have the utmost confidence in his management capabilities.”

The review also sees the appointment of Mark Adderley as McLarens regional manager in London. Mark Adderley takes on the role of McLarens regional manager in London, reporting to executive director Graham Smart.
