Braemar Appoints New Regional Managing Director for Americas

Press Release
Monday, March 04, 2013

Braemar Adjusting appointed Pierre (Pete) Krouse as Regional Managing Director of the Americas, with effect from April 2, 2013.

The selection follows the decision by Chris Dye to leave his current position after more than 13 years with the company and 33 years working as an independent Adjuster. Chris will remain with Braemar Adjusting until April 30 to ensure a seamless transition of his case load and management responsibilities before commencing his new role as Claims Director for Allianz in Houston.

Welcoming Pete to his new position, Grant Smith, Braemar Adjusting Group Managing Director, said, “Pete has been with the company for 25 years and was one of the original directors of Steege Kingston. While working for the group, Pete graduated from Law School in 1993 and remains a member in good standing of the Texas Bar and of the Maritime Law Association.

“While he has surveyed, investigated and adjusted a wide variety of both onshore and offshore claims throughout that period, Pete is recognized by the energy market as an industry leader in the offshore sector. He has specialized in mobile offshore drilling units, production platforms, pipelines, vessels, ROVs seismic streamers and geophysical exploration equipment.

“Pete’s appointment illustrates we have the right succession planning in place throughout the group and while we are sorry to lose Chris after so many years of valuable service to the company we wish him every success in the future,” Mr. Smith said.

These changes coincide with Chuck Madeley ending his secondment to sister company Braemar Casbarian on March 1, 2013, at which time he will resume a full case load and assist Pete in the management of the Houston office.
