ClaimsPro, Canada’s largest independent claims adjuster, announced on Tuesday that Fred Plant, the company’s senior vice president, Atlantic Region, has been named the new president of the Canadian Independent Adjusters Association (CIAA).
The CIAA has existed for more than 50 years as an industry body established to promote and represent common business interests of licensed independent insurance adjusters within the insurance industry, ClaimsPro said in a press release on Tuesday. ClaimsPro recently announced its full membership into the organization, registering all of its adjusters and officially joining on July 20.
Plant has extensive experience with CIAA, having previously served as its national president from 2007 to 2008. In addition, he served as regional president for New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, and has chaired CIAA’s Education Committee for that region. Outside of CIAA, Plant served a one year term as president of The International Institute of Loss Adjusters, having participated on the executive of that organization for eight years as treasurer.
He has also been an active member of a number of industry committees including those serving the Insurance Bureau of Canada and The Canadian Risk Managers Association.
“I am pleased to continue my relationship with CIAA and it is my honour to once again hold this position as president,” Plant said in the release.
Ross Betteridge, president of ClaimsPro, added that the appointment reaffirms the company’s commitment to the CIAA and all of its member adjusters. “We are pleased to congratulate Fred Plant on his appointment to President of CIAA,” Betteridge said.
Plant officially assumed the role of national president of CIAA on Aug. 19, following CIAA’s annual general meeting.
ClaimsPro is an independent adjusting and claims management company that has been working with Canada’s domestic insurance market for over 25 years and has offices in every province in the country. CIAA’s purpose is to promote and represent common business interests of licensed independent insurance adjusters within the insurance industry.
