Claims management and assistance provider CEGA, a Charles Taylor company, has appointed a team leader to manage its new Special Investigations Unit in Bournemouth.
Matt Bowman will head up the claims validation service unit which has been established to complement CEGA’s operations in Chichester.
Bowman has over a decade of investigative expertise and intelligence analysis to CEGA’s claims validation provision, which covers all areas of insurance claims validation, including insurance fraud and liability investigations on household, personal accident, travel and health claims. It is available as a standalone service.
Bowman, who will report into CEGA’s head of technical claims Simon Cook, spent 16 years at Zurich Financial Services prior to joining CEGA, over ten of which were dedicated to a variety of fraud investigation and intelligence roles.
He was also selected to complete a six month secondment working alongside the Insurance Fraud Enforcement Department at the City of London Police.
Cook said: “As our global client-base grows, investing in highly-skilled staff reinforces our ability to support insurers in the fight against insurance fraud, which in turn protects their bottom lines. We are delighted to welcome Matt to the team as a valuable addition to our claims validation service.”
