Memphis, TN – Sedgwick recently announced the appointment of veteran industry executive Jane Tutoki to serve as an independent member of its board of directors.
Tutoki brings to the role over 30 years of insurance leadership experience. She most recently worked as vice chair of Sedgwick, which she joined last year through the company’s acquisition of Cunningham Lindsey. In that capacity, she managed the integration of the two companies, working to bridge the best offerings of each; Tutoki also oversaw many of Sedgwick’s corporate departments, including colleague resources, legal, IT and public relations. For nearly four years prior, she served as Cunningham Lindsey’s global CEO, leading the international organization and successfully positioning them to join forces with Sedgwick in 2018.
A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, Tutoki began her impressive career as a trial lawyer for insurance companies. She spent several years running in-house staff counsel operations before leading commercial claims operations at The Hartford, where she gained experience working with various insurance lines and global carriers. Other leadership positions she has held include global head of property and casualty claims operations for AIG, head of the Americas region and executive director of global insurance for Xchanging and global chief claims officer for Zurich.
“Jane’s professional experience and perspective are truly unparalleled, and I’m so pleased that she’s become the first female member of Sedgwick’s board of directors,” said Dave North, chairman and CEO of Sedgwick. “Jane’s legal background, knowledge of the global claims landscape and understanding of the Sedgwick organization makes her a perfect addition to our board.”
“I am honored to be the first woman on Sedgwick’s board and humbled by the opportunity to join such an exemplary group,” Tutoki said. “I look forward to continuing to provide counsel to Sedgwick’s executive team and to supporting the company’s ongoing growth. This new role will allow me to remain engaged in broadening Sedgwick’s capacity to provide end-to-end services to clients around the world and to take care of more people in more places than ever before.”
