Vice President of Claims

Imagine a City Manager of a large municipality with a police department involved in a joint task force made up of several officers from different local municipalities. The task force, in executing a warrant, enters the home to find the occupant with a weapon pointed at them.

The officers fire at the occupant causing severe injuries resulting in millions of future medical care. What does the City Manager do now?

Tokio Marine HCC - Public Risk Group (TMHCC - PRG) handles just this type of claim.

TMHCC - PRG is a leading provider of municipal liability, automobile and property insurance to public entities in multiple states. The Public Risk Group policyholders include counties, cities, townships, villages, police departments, jails, fire departments and more.

Our coverage includes automobiles (including patrol cars, fire trucks, etc.), property (fire stations, schools, playgrounds, etc.) and services (emergency responders, elected officials, etc.). We adjust a wide variety of claims: Damage to vehicles from rear-end collisions and roof collapses.

Claims involving the operations of law enforcement, township operations, correctional facilities, etc. The work of our claims department is diverse, dynamic, and engaging.

We are looking for a Vice President of Claims for our office in Auburn Hills, Michigan, a hands-on leader who wants to make an impact on the claims administration system, processes, and procedures for a major player in the specialty insurance industry.

The ideal candidate will bring significant accomplishments in building a team and managing a claims processing function in commercial property and casualty insurance to this critical role. Ours is a business where policy complexity and risk exposure demand a strategic perspective and the consistent exercise of judgment throughout our relationship with our clients.

In this key strategic role, you would lead a highly skilled and collaborative team of more than 25 professionals, including three managers, in claims processing, litigation management, and department reporting. Consequently, we expect the successful candidate to bring significant leadership, management experience, and organizational savvy to the table. While not an absolute requirement, the successful candidate will very likely have a Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD) degree.

Your immediate performance objectives would be to:

  • Gain an in-depth understanding of our insurance policies and procedures: quickly learn how the claims department operates within the Tokio Marine HCC structure through direct training and interactions with different claims staff, underwriters and brokers.

  • Build proficiency with internal systems and processes: quickly demonstrate your ability to navigate the claims systems and claims of limited complexity and exposure.

  • Demonstrate proficiency in insured/broker communications: Within the first 2-3 months, step in as the primary liaison between various internal peers, departments and teams including the coordination of quarterly Claims/Underwriting meetings.

  • Enhance current reporting and analytical tools: Improve and expand metrics in terms of their reliability and relevance to Key Performance Indicators. Contribute to the ongoing transition to our new policy and claims management system.

  • Quickly establish yourself as leader and as a collaborator: Build relationships with incumbent staff to lead from the front, to demonstrate what and how, and to develop individual and team capabilities. Establish yourself as a team player working closely with sister departments such as underwriting and with our Corporate Claims office.
