The agency said that as chief claims officer, Aussicker’s focus will be to challenge status-quo thinking, strengthen carrier partnerships and improve profitability, quality and best practices throughout the organization.

His focus with the watercraft program will be to improve service and retention in the existing client base and develop new distribution channels to increase market share.
