Creation of new division follows purchase of Garwyn last year

Davies has formed an enlarged liability division by combining its existing capabilities with those of fellow loss adjuster Garwyn, which it bought last December.

The new unit, called Garwyn & Davies Liability, will offer clients a complete liability and specialty service across the UK and Ireland.

The unit is lead by managing director Lesley Johnson, and its leadership team is made up of internal appointments.

Suzanne Kearney will lead the Southern region and specialist lines practices nationally.

Stephen Kavanagh will be responsible for Scotland, Northern Ireland and the North of England.

Peter Wilson will lead the Midlands and South West teams as well as having national operational control.

The Garwyn Ireland team remains under the leadership of Peter Haran.

Johnson said: “Garwyn & Davies Liability faces the future with a leadership team of highly qualified individuals, all of whom have built strong reputations in the liability market.

“By joining forces we have created a market leading team who can provide clients a liability proposition that is in a class of its own.”

Davies chief executive Dan Saulter added: “Garwyn & Davies Liability builds on our commitment to clients by investing in capability and talented people who can deliver a leading liability proposition. 

“This also demonstrate the depth of talent we have at Davies which is a major advantage to help us deliver on our strategic growth plans.”
