Jersey City, New Jersey – March 14, 2019

York is pleased to announce James Podesva’s new role as senior vice president of Specialized Loss Adjusting (SLA), leading global business operations in the U.S., U.K., the Caribbean and South America for this line of business. Podesva brings 38 years of experience, including 15 years at York where he most recently served as vice president and senior executive adjuster for several clients and global programs.

“I’m excited to take on this new role and execute the quality initiatives that have always been at the core of our SLA business,” stated Podesva. “We have an excellent team of adjusters and claim directors and I’m looking forward to helping maximize their potential to deliver results and best serve our clients.”

Podesva joined York in 2003 as the SLA team’s 12th adjuster, and over the last 15 years, that team has grown to more than 200 adjusters and is a strong contributor to York’s overall success. York’s SLA team works globally and handles complex and specialized losses—with experience adjusting individual losses in excess of $800 million.

“Jim’s dedication and commitment to quality and innovation will drive our SLA team to continue its international growth and success as a leading provider,” said Chairman and CEO Tom Warsop. “I’m looking forward to watching the SLA team continue to thrive under Jim’s leadership and deliver the same level of quality service York is known for.”
