Axis Expands Ex-Pat Team in Mexico

11 Sep 2012

Axis International Loss Adjusters and Surveyors (Axis) announces the ongoing expansion of its Ex-Pat team in Mexico with the appointment of Dax Stuart-Cox as a Senior Insurance and Reinsurance Loss Adjuster.

Dax will provide adjusting services including those for Cash in Transit and D&O losses, to international Insurers and Reinsurers and will be based in the companyís office in Mexico City.

Dax will work with Axisí Regional Director (Latin America North), Ian Whitmore, and his team. Commenting on the appointment, Ian Whitmore said: ďDax brings us a wealth of relevant adjusting skills and local knowledge which will be of great importance in delivering the high levels of technical expertise and superior service we are committed to providing our domestic and international reinsurance markets in Mexico.

ďAxis has built a strong base of expertise and experience in the Mexican and Latin American markets. We are seeing an upward trend in business year on year and have doubled the number of Ex-Pat adjusters to cater for this growth.Ē

Dax joins Axis from Charles Taylor Adjusting where he worked for five years within the firmís Property & Casualty Division based in Mexico City. He also previously held a non-marine International Loss Adjusting role with MYI in Mexico. He has significant experience in the region based on a wide range of losses.

The appointment of Dax follows those of Ben Griffin who joined the team in 2011 from Crawford & Company, to support growth in areas such as Liability and Construction All Risks, and Martin Jackson who was appointed earlier this year to focus on Engineering and Reinsurance support in Mexico and for the Colombian market where he will soon be based.

Axisís commitment to supporting the Mexican market has seen it invest in not only in new personnel with expertise in key areas of business, but also a dedicated technology system to enable adjusters to send information from site inspections directly from their mobile and smartphones. This enables adjusters to approve some settlements onsite or for office based adjusters to immediately access the information and complete the adjustment process. It also generates reports on-line allowing Insurers instant access to adjuster reports.

Mexico represents one of Axisís largest operations in the Latin American region with two offices employing over 40 staff plus a large team of engineers and architects. In the region the company also has offices in Argentina and Colombia, and works with associates in Brazil, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Panama and Peru.
