One of Crawford & Co's key UK executives is to leave the company.

Managing director of client services Neil Ventris resigned from the loss adjuster last week after over 20 years with the company.

Crawford UK senior vice president and SVP Business Solutions Group chief Jonathan Clark said: "Ventris has taken up an opportunity that has recently been presented to him that will realise some of his personal ambitions. He is leaving Crawford on amicable terms.

"Neil played a key role within the company for many years and we wish him the best of luck for the future."

He added that the company was now seeking a replacement and considering whether Ventris's role will be replaced "like-for-like".
