In the competitive realm of insurance, success hinges on the ability to navigate complex claims with finesse and precision. Celebrating the industry’s finest in claims services, the British Claims Awards celebrates exactly that, recognising the achievements of individuals and organisations across various categories. At GB, we are thrilled to introduce our rising star nominee, James Mather, whose remarkable journey exemplifies immense value and expertise in the world of insurance.

Undertaking critical responsibilities in claims administration and payment entries, his meticulous attention to detail and unwavering dedication to delivering customer-focused solutions quickly distinguished James as a professional destined for greater achievements.

Fueled by his ambition and thirst for knowledge, James eagerly seized an opportunity to join a specialist team supporting a new acquisition in the Travel and A&H space. As the business faced a surge period following the lifting of formal lockdown travel restrictions, James displayed exceptional skills in expertly managing extraordinary claims volumes, materially impacting the success of the project, and affirming his position as a rising star within the GB team.

In November 2022, James’s expertise flourished even further as he was seconded to the Claims Consultancy business on a major Motor project. This division comprises highly experienced and skilled multi-class claims professionals with an average of up to two decades of experience. His outstanding performance caught the attention of the Head of Operations of UK Claims Consulting, who offered him a permanent position in the team.

Beyond his exceptional journey, James’s innovative approach and commitment to excellence make him an invaluable asset in today’s ever-evolving claims landscape. His proactive pursuit of knowledge has led him to explore disciplines such as Behavioural Science, elevating his understanding of customers and refining claims processes. James’s investment in continuous growth is reflected in the positive feedback we consistently receive from clients, who benefit from his enhanced interactions and insights.

James’s story is one of dedication, ambition, and unwavering commitment to raising standards in claims. As a strategic claims partner, GB embraces a culture of listening, learning, and continuous improvement. James embodies these values, diligently working to deliver exceptional customer outcomes.
