CEGA Expand Special Investigations Unit
- Published in iPMI Magazine Executive Appointments Movements News
CEGA have expanded their Special Investigations Unit with the appointment of an additional investigator; Geoff Foster.
Geoff brings more than 14 years' experience of insurance to CEGA's fraud team, five of which were spent with the provider's own claims handling operation, from 2003 to 2008. His multidiscipline skills span several sectors of the industry, including motor and travel.
"Geoff's appointment has been driven by a growing demand for our global fraud investigation services," says CEGA's Head of Technical Claims, Simon Cook. "His skills add considerable value to our existing team, which works with our representatives all over the world to provide desk-top and 'on the ground' investigations for travel, health, personal accident and household claims."
Geoff is soon to complete his formal professional investigator accreditation. Like his counterparts in the Special Investigations Unit, he will also play an active role in increasing fraud awareness amongst CEGA's front-end claims handlers. Many of the latter are encouraged to pursue investigator qualifications themselves, as part of the provider's proactive fraud detection initiatives.
