Adrian Hotson switches from rival

Cunningham Lindsey’s liability services has hired new area manager, Adrian Hotson, from casualty market rivals Garwyn.

Hotson, based in the company’s Leeds office, replaces Shelley Johnson, who has been promoted to manage operations for Cunningham Lindsey’s liability claims management teams across the UK.

He is the latest recruit from Garwyn and joins former colleagues including Simon Hiscock, former regional director at Garwyn.

Mark Gilbert, head of liability services at Cunningham Lindsey said: “We understand that casualty clients demand the highest standards of technical knowledge and want to deal with people they know and trust. This is why we are glad to have Adrian on board, with his wealth of experience and excellent reputation in the casualty claims market.

“We have doubled our share of the casualty market in the past four years and Adrian will play an integral role in our continued expansion in this area.”

Hotson added: “I was delighted to be offered such an exciting position and am looking forward to the challenge of capitalising on the well-established reputation of Cunningham Lindsey in the casualty claims arena.”
