We are pleased to introduce a new member to the PLM team, John Kennealy, Vice President of Claims. An industry veteran, John brings years of experience in insurance claims and risk management to the PLM claims team. In his new position, John will be responsible for the overall management of the claims operation, including handling complicated litigation, analyzing insurance contracts, and developing new strategies for keeping loss adjustment expenses down.
Prior to joining PLM, John served as director of the major litigation unit for commercial claims at CNA Insurance Company. As such, he worked with a team on high-severity losses, partnering with claims managers and other claims professionals in setting reserves, determining claims strategy, and settlement negotiation. His time in management roles, including at CNA and ACE, which has since merged with Chubb, has given John extensive leadership experience in the industry.
