The Board of Braemar Adjusting is delighted to announce the appointment of Grant Smith as Group Managing Director of the company with immediate effect.


His appointment is an important stage in the streamlining of the business and will enable senior management within Braemar Adjusting to focus entirely on the needs of its client base around the world.


Grant will work closely with his team of Regional Managing Directors – Geoff Thomas (Europe and West Africa); Chris Dye (Americas); John Harris (Asia Pacific) and Directors George Mowatt (Group Technical Director and Head of Litigation Support), Chris Eades (Director Middle Eastern Operations), Paul Cameron (Director Canadian Operations) and Jamie Talbot (Director Brazilian Operations) – to execute the company growth and development strategy throughout its core markets.


A commercial law graduate and member of the Canadian Insurance Institute, Grant has over 18 years’ experience adjusting Onshore and Offshore energy insurance claims. He was appointed to the board of Braemar Adjusting in 2001 and returned from London to Calgary in 2010 where, in conjunction with running the Canadian Oil Sands, Power Generation, Business Interruption and Well Control teams, he assumed group responsibility for business development throughout North America.


Grant has broad international experience having worked in the Braemar offices of both London and Calgary with secondments to Singapore and Houston. He has adjusted claims worldwide, involving onshore and offshore mega-construction projects, refining, upgrading, chemical and power generation facilities; multiple asset hurricane losses; complex control of well, business & contingent business interruption losses.


He will continue to operate from Calgary but will travel regularly to the key London, Houston, Singapore and Middle Eastern markets in his new role.


Quentin Soanes, Chairman of the Braemar Technical Services Group, within which Braemar Adjusting sits, welcomed Grant’s appointment. He said: “Braemar Adjusting is a major player in the offshore and onshore loss adjusting and risk assessment market. Having senior management of Grant’s calibre is good news for a business and a Group that is focused on meeting the exact needs of its marketplace. I look forward to working closely with Grant and his excellent team over the coming months.”
