Ecclesiastical appoints new claims director
By Rob Freeman | 28th July 2020
Jeremy Trott has been named as Ecclesiastical's new claims director, replacing David Bonehill when he retires in October.
Mr Trott joins the Gloucester insurers after 14 years with Allianz, most recently as head of claims operations where he was responsible for operational delivery of a 700-strong claims function across UK and India.
His previous roles include head of strategic innovation, as well as senior roles in sales and underwriting with both Allianz and Aviva.
He said: "I've spent nearly 15 enjoyable years at Allianz and I'm delighted to be taking on this exciting new opportunity to head up claims at Ecclesiastical.
"It's a financial services business with a unique purpose to contribute to the greater good of society and I'm looking forward to working with the claims team to build on the exceptional customer service that Ecclesiastical is renowned for."
Ecclesiastical UKGI managing director Richard Coleman said: "Jeremy's passion for innovation and technology and his proven track record and experience in claims make him ideally positioned to take on this pivotal role within the UKGI leadership team.
"Jeremy will be building upon the excellent foundations we have developed within the claims function over the last few years.
"I'm really pleased that we have been able to bring in a leader worthy of our claims function, and the dedicated professionals we have in it."
Mr Bonehill's career in insurance spans more than 30 years and he joined Ecclesiastical in 2005 to head up the claims department.
In 2018, he received the Insurance Post Achievement Award, voted for by his peers and sponsored by the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Mr Coleman said : "David has played an active and valuable role in developing the industry's approach to claims handling and his personal commitment to our business has been highly appreciated.
"I'd like to thank him for his tremendous contribution to Ecclesiastical and wish him well in his retirement."
