’I look forward to maximising operational efficiencies for the benefit of our valued clients and colleagues,’ says new appointee

Sedgwick has named Peter Farrelly as its new UK chief operating officer.

Farrelly joined the loss adjuster in 2015 as head of speciality before becoming the manging director for UK commercial claims services in 2019.

He has led on several projects during his time with the firm so far, such as its colleague development programme to help with recruiting talent and succession planning.

Farrelly has also managed numerous commercial property and business interruption claims across a range of risks.

Ahead of beginning his new role, Farrelly said that he was looking forward to “maximising operational efficiencies for the benefit of our valued clients and colleagues”.

”This will be key to ensuring Sedgwick’s continued success and demonstrating our commitment to excellence and growth,” he continued.

Neil Gibson, Sedgwick’s UK chief executive, added: “Peter’s unparalleled expertise in scaling operations, driving process improvements and fostering innovation give me the greatest confidence in his ability to deliver operational excellence and fuel business growth amid challenging socioeconomic conditions.” 


Meanwhile, Joseph Noel — who has been serving as director, head of commercial property and subsidence for the UK — will step up to fill the role of managing director of commercial claims services.

Noel joined the firm in 2003 and has experience managing property and liability claims across the UK and Europe.

Gibson added: “The track records of these two outstanding leaders put us in a fantastic position to achieve the best for our clients, customers and colleagues.”
