About This Individual

Joel is a qualified loss adjuster with 18 years experience in the investigation and management of commercial liability and property insurance claims.  He specialises in all classes of liability - public, products and professional indemnity - and has a broad range of experience in material damage/ ISR and contract works losses. In 2000, Joel was admitted as an Associate of the Australian Insurance Institute.  He subsequently completed a Diploma in Business (Loss Adjusting) and thereafter earned admission as an Associate of the Australasian Institute of Chartered Loss Adjusters and as a Fellow of the International Federation of Adjusting Associations. Joel commenced his insurance career with SGIO Perth in 1988.  After four years as a commercial claims consultant he moved to England where, in 1993, he was employed by Beachams Loss Adjusters.  He spent three years in Beachams Birmingham office and two in London developing his investigation and adjustment skills working amongst the UK’s diverse landscape of commercial and industrial business. In 1998, Joel returned to Perth where he joined Robertson & Co as a liability and property adjuster, and was integral in the development of its liability department.  He subsequently became a director of what was one of Australia’s most highly respected loss adjusting and claims management firms at the time of its sale in 2002.  Thereafter, Joel’s global adjusting employer appointed him WA State Liability Manager, a position he held for four years. In 2006,  Joel joined Aon and until mid-2009 he led its WA risk consulting department, which worked with Aon’s numerous ASX listed mining, energy and construction clients to identify and analyse their insurable risk exposures. Joel has joined CTA to work with its existing clients on the liability front, and assist with the formation/ development of a broader liability and property division operating out of its Perth office with a view to concentrating on complex and technical losses.  Since joining Charles Taylor Adjusting, he has been involved in engineering liability matters.
