Sedgwick Claims Management Services promoted Robert A. Johnson to executive vice president of specialty operations.
In that role, Johnson will have management responsibility for the company’s professional liability, consumer claims, Medicare compliance, structured settlements, Ohio state fund and unemployment insurance units. He will also assume oversight of Sedgwick’s special investigative unit (SIU), another new and growing segment of the company’s business.
Johnson has been with Sedgwick since 1992, when he joined the company’s program management team in the Columbia, S.C., office. Since that time he earned several promotions, serving as regional account executive, national director of program management, and ultimately as managing director of Sedgwick’s specialty operations business unit.
“Robert Johnson brings to his new role more than 20 years of experience in claims management and the development of lasting client relationships,” said David A. North, Sedgwick’s president and CEO. “The knowledge he has gained throughout his years of producing excellent program results, promoting client satisfaction, managing business development opportunities, and ensuring regulatory compliance positions him well to foster continued growth for Sedgwick’s specialty lines of business.”
