Gary Winston, Chairman of the Board of Directors of CRU GROUP today announced that David Repinski, former U.S. and Americas Regional CEO of two of the largest global loss adjusting firms, has been named as the first CEO of CRU USA.
“The dramatic consolidation of the independent adjusting sector in the United States has created huge opportunities for a customer-focused and talent-friendly adjusting firm, ready to be nimble and responsive to market opportunities and unique customer needs.” said Mr. Winston, “CRU USA has grown by leaps and bounds in this rapidly changing environment and we believe that now the time is ripe for us to take the firm to a whole new level. Our Board is thrilled that a proven senior executive of David’s caliber has agreed to lead us into that future.”
Most recently, David Repinski was the Global Development Officer at Sedgwick. Prior to Sedgwick’s acquisition of Cunningham Lindsey he served as Chief Executive Officer – Americas of that company. He has also served as CEO, US Property & Casualty of Crawford & Company and as CEO for Cunningham Lindsey U.S.A. His proven track record of strong growth and profitability in multiple senior roles has been based on a legendary work ethic and a disciplined commitment to put the customer first.
“I am beyond excited by the opportunity to lead CRU USA. We start with a great nucleus, and a CRU corporate culture based on true customer-focus.” said Mr. Repinski, “Given the startling changes in the US market with insurers, MGAs and brokers all being offered less responsiveness and less flexibility by fewer and fewer big players, I genuinely believe the sky is the limit for the CRU model here in the US.”
David will be based out of the CRU US Dallas office and report to President and CEO of the CRU GROUP, Kyle Winston.
