Crawford & Company Relocates Marc Godfrey to GTS Operations in Mexico
ATLANTA and MEXICO CITY (December 19, 2012) – Marc Godfrey of Global Technical Services (GTS®) will be relocating from Brazil to Mexico in January 2013 to focus on developing the international and London reinsurance market and handling large claims in GTS’ Mexico City operations. He will also continue to provide technical assistance to Crawford operations throughout the Latin America region. Godfrey brings more than 15 years of international experience in the handling of significant construction and energy claims to his new role. Godfrey will be reporting directly to Eduardo Kimsi, the country manager for Mexico.
“We launched our GTS operations in Mexico City earlier this year in response to strong growth in complex assignments arising from the regional and international insurance markets, and we expect Marc to contribute to further growth,” Kimsi said. “Marc brings senior claims handling experience that will help meet the critical needs of clients in Mexico and in the region who have experienced major losses.”
Godfrey, who joined Crawford in 2008, has been managing GTS’ operations in Brazil since 2011, where he implemented a GTS team to handle international and London reinsurance work. During his tenure he has focused on adjusting high-profile construction and energy claims for GTS, Crawford’s definitive solution for large, complex claims that provides the highest level of world-class talent to strategically manage losses around the globe. He has managed losses in many regions, including Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean and other South American countries.
Before joining Crawford, Godfrey worked for more than 10 years on international construction claims for two other major claims adjusting organizations. He began his career with the Chicago Bridge & Iron Company N.V., constructing liquefied petroleum gas and liquefied natural gas tanks in Ireland, Holland, England and the United Arab Emirates, and also served as a surveyor for Skanska in Portugal.
Godfrey belongs to the Chartered Institute of Building, an international organization of more than 48,000 building professionals, and has trained at the Petroleum Extension Service (PETEX®) Rig School at The University of Texas at Austin.
