Two senior executives have left GAB Robins in yet another round of managerial shake-ups at the loss adjuster.

Former managing director and head of GAB Robins' North American operation Derek Coles has resigned from the company to pursue other interests.

Coles was recently promoted to the US job after Kieran Rigby replaced John Castagno as GAB Robins UK chief executive.

Sources said that Coles had spent "most of his time in the GAB Robins office in London" since taking on the US role.

Finance director Colin Mason has also left the company to pursue his career elsewhere. He will be replaced by Paul Brown as head of finance.

GAB Robins has also appointed ex-CMGL director Ian Finlayson as UK commercial director, reporting to Rigby.

Rigby said: "Ian's appointment is a reflection of my total commitment to a profitable growth strategy for GAB Robins in the coming years. Ian will work closely with me and will have overall responsibility for business development, client services activities and all non-field operations including our TPA business, Robins Claim Solutions."

Finlayson was CMGL director of corporate and general insurance division.

This week will be crucial for GAB Robins as it is understood a decision will be made on the Lloyds TSB loss adjusting panel.

Lloyd's TSB was unavailable for comment.
