2012 Independent Adjuster Carrier Catastrophe Certification Workshops- Contact Eberls Claims Service for Information

January 30, 2012

I am frequently asked for the location and dates of upcoming Property and Auto carrier certification classes with carrier certifications as one of the top requests.

I highly recommend any independent adjuster seeking specific dates and locations contact Eberls Claims Service  who is a highly regarded independent adjusting firm. I know they have a training headquarters in Dallas and provide excellent courses for Xactimate Training by one of the handful of people who are actually a Certified Xactimate trainer by Xactware (Jennifer Whitaker).

I have many adjusters who are on their rosters who highly recommend Eberls. I have also supervised Eberl’s adjusters for many years when performing as a National Catastrophe manager for State Farm as well as a Field Team Manager so I feel very confident recommending them.

They can fill you in on the experience requirements, dates of upcoming  carrier certification exam dates.

Email Tina Lehman at Eberls at TLehman@Eberls.com to submit your resume and request information should you be looking for a Carrier Certification or other assignments as Eberls is also a Citizens of Florida  adjusting firm and I have no doubt respresent many other carriers providing you with an excellent opportunity to receive assignments given your experience level and professionalism meets their needs.

ClaimSmentor sponsor Mariposa  announces the addition of Bob Khosropur as Senior Vice President

Whitehouse, OH – January 27, 2012

 

Mariposa Insurance Services announced that Bob Khosropur has joined the company as Senior Vice President of Operations, where he will be responsible for sales, marketing, mergers and acquisitions, accounting and logistics.

“Bob brings with him a wealth of industry knowledge and experience, and we know that he will be a great addition to our team, helping us achieve our operational, reputational and growth goals,” said David Swank, Senior Partner at Mariposa Insurance Services.

Prior to joining the company, Bob served as Chief Claims Officer at Narragansett Bay Insurance, a Northeast regional insurance company that grew from $12 million to $120 million during his tenure. At Narragansett Bay, Bob was responsible for building a homeowners claims department capable of daily and catastrophe response for customers. He also oversaw the company’s Shelterpride® field underwriting arm that appraises the interior and exterior of homes for value, risk management/mitigation, and predictive modeling data.

Bob has more than 25 years of claims operations and strategy experience including 19 years with Allstate Insurance in a variety of roles, starting as an adjuster to the district claims manager, and completing with four years as a national manager of strategic sourcing for the claims department. His extensive claims operations experience includes catastrophe management involving Hurricane Andrew, the Northridge Earthquake, and multiple wind, hail, flood and freeze catastrophes. Bob also served as the first Vice President of Claims for Privilege Underwriters (PURE), where he led the build-out of the Claims Department for the start-up carrier based in White Plains, NY.

Bob holds a Six Sigma Black Belt in business defect analysis and improvement, and this past year he received National Underwriter’s Claims Magazine “Claims Professional of the Year” award at the 15th Annual America’s Claims Event (ACE) in New Orleans.

Recognizing Bob’s ingenuity and dedication to enhancing claims services, Christina Bramlet, ACE Chairperson and Editor in Chief of Claims Magazine, said: “During a career spanning more than 20 years, he has embodied the attributes fitting of this distinction, having instituted ‘best’ practices and systematic changes to propel his organization to excellence.”

Hurricane Rina- Now a Category 2 Hurricane- see projected path- Is Florida a Potential Target?

October 25, 2011

Here is the latest 11 am statistics for Hurricane Rina and projections for a possible Florida target location from Central Florida news:

http://www.cfnews13.com/article/news/2011/october/333804/Could-Florida-be-a-potential-target-for-Rina-and-new-low-in-tropics

I’ll have the selected Citizens of Florida 2011 Vendor link posted later today for those looking for legitimate Florida assignments from assigned vendors. As anyone who follows my information, I do not recommend ANY adjuster work for anything but a Level I adjusting firm- meaning a firm who has the direct assignment with a carrier- not a 2nd, 3rd, or more tier adjusting firm for your own protection getting paid. More on all of this in a later post today.
