Liability specialists and claims managers The Quest Partnership has strengthened its team following a surge of new business wins.

Quest have made four new appointments following major contract wins in the UK and abroad.

Ed Gooda has been appointed Director with responsibility for claims and risk management. Mr Gooda has worked for leading insurers and reinsurers at a senior level in a 32 year career.

He has extensive international claims management experience in the Lloyd’s and London market and also sits on the Fellowship Assessment Board of the Chartered Insurance Institute.

David Miles, former managing director of Core Adjusters, joins as liability and reinsurance claims consultant bringing 40 years high level experience to The Quest Partnership.

The firm has also bolstered its back office operation with the appointment of Tricia Stanton as Financial Controller and James Bennett as claims administrator.

Peter Mann, CEO of The Quest Partnership, said “These are key appointments who will play an important role in handling instructions for our growing number of national and international clients.

“The Quest Partnership continues to prosper, so much so that we have not had to furlough any of our staff – a fact, of which, I am extremely proud.”

Quest has expanded its global claims management reach through its appointment as sole claims manager for Klapton Re-insurance handling its claims across Africa and Asia.

In addition, it has been appointed by Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance (Europe) to investigate liability claims.

Further success has come with a comprehensive sole provider deal with Metroline who provide buses for Transport for London and operate a substantial fleet serviced by 17 garages.

Mr Mann said: “These are exciting times for The Quest Partnership as we approach our 30th year in business and I am delighted to have attracted such high quality people to join us.”
