After a glittering career of more than 40 years in the loss adjusting profession, including the past 17 in our own company, Gerald recently decided to retire from active involvement in the business.
Surrounded by his closest friends from the Market, on Thursday 6 June the directors of our company hosted a lunch at Corrigan’s in Mayfair to mark this event and to celebrate this wonderful career.
A dual-qualified chartered accountant and chartered loss adjuster, Gerald specialised in Business Interruption claims where he built up a stellar reputation. This started when he worked with major loss adjusting companies in the UK, but then extended globally after Gerald joined FitzGerald Consulting almost immediately it was founded in 2002 and began working on the largest BI claims world-wide. These included several multi-billion losses arising from the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York, similar-sized cases from Catastrophe (CAT) events in Mexico, Chile and New Zealand, plus individual cases throughout the world.
Over and above this professional success, Gerald made a huge contribution to the development of our company and the directors and all his colleagues will miss his wise counsel. Much more important though, we shall also miss his excellent company – and the fun and laughter he brought to everything.
Of course, we shall continue to keep in touch with him and he remains a share-holding director of the company. We wish him a long and very happy retirement and he may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
