Charles Taylor Adjusting (CTA) has opened a loss adjusting office in Rome, Italy to offer local and international insurers access to a locally-based international adjusting capability. Nicholas La Stella, a Senior Loss Adjuster from CTA’s London office has relocated to Rome to head the new office.
The opening is part of CTA’s growth strategy to expand its office network into geographies where there is a demand from global and local insurers for international loss adjusting services. It follows the opening of a new adjusting office in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2014 and appointments of senior loss adjusters to expand CTA’s services in Calgary, Toronto, New York, Doha, Singapore, Sydney and the UK.
Nicholas La Stella has worked in the London insurance market for three years and also spent three years on secondment to CTA in Miami. He started his loss adjusting career working for Studio Bolton in Italy. Nicholas is bilingual in Italian and English and has dual Italian and British nationality. He is also fluent in French, Portuguese and Spanish.
Arthur Clarke, Chief Executive Officer, CTA said: “There is significant demand in Italy for loss adjusters with international expertise and the ability to handle large and complex losses. We believe we are well placed to offer a high quality loss adjusting service to London market insurers underwriting Italian risks and to local Italian insurers. The new office will also enable us to service worldwide accounts with an Italian presence.”
Andrew Jackson, Managing Director – Property, Casualty and Special Risks, CTA, said: “Nicholas is the ideal candidate to lead our new Italian operation. He is an experienced Property, Casualty, and Financial Lines loss adjuster who has the advantage of understanding the Italian and international insurance markets very well, combined with in-depth experience of the London markets. I am very confident that our new office will be well received by clients in Italy, London and international markets.”
