Specialty (re)insurer Sompo International has launched Global Risk Control Services, a unit within its insurance business which will work with clients to deliver advanced risk management programmes as well as more traditional loss control tools.
The team, to be led by senior vice president of risk control Victor Sordillo, includes resources across the US. and Europe, with certified experts in a broad range of safety disciplines including industrial hygiene, ergonomics, fire protection, and product liability as well as professionals with extensive experience in the transportation, environmental services, real estate, hospitality, construction, manufacturing and financial services sectors.
Since joining Sompo International in January 2017, Mr Sordillo has significantly expanded and enhanced the scope of strategic risk management services offered to the company’s clients. The (re)insurer’s risk management and mitigation services now include customised mobile inspection applications, employee training and recognition programs, and a suite of assessment tools.
In addition, the (re)insurer’s proprietary next generation of risk control consultation, Risk A/TSM, relies on behavioural based analysis to assist clients to better manage their risk exposures.
Mr Sordillo said, “By building a team of specialised risk control professionals with in-depth knowledge of the risk exposures specific to our client’s operations, we can deliver innovative and consultative risk control services. Advanced risk management programmes provide value to our clients by reducing their risk exposure, identifying best practice controls, improving efficiency and differentiating their business operations.”
Sompo International CEO of Global Insurance and chief underwriting officer Jack Kuhn commented, “Working collaboratively with our dedicated underwriters and claims specialists, this expanded global risk control function will enhance the delivery of industry leading services to Sompo International’s clients. Our clients appreciate that our advanced risk control services drive reduced claims experience and demonstrated return on investment to their bottom line.”
