David Stills snapped up by Sedgwick

Global risk management executive David Stills has been snapped up by Sedgwick, where he will look after global carrier relations, global insurance markets, risk management, and litigation strategy and practices. He will also be advising on pandemic risk management.

Mr Stills most recently held the position of vice-president of global risk management at Walmart, a role he held for 18 years, and as part of which he led a team of no less than 550 risk management and risk finance professionals, with responsibility for Walmart’s Global Risk Management Division, including all lines of global insurance, captive insurance company management, US-based casualty claims management, and executive leadership of Walmart Claims Services, Walmart’s wholly owned third party administrator.

“With an experienced professional like David joining our team, we are confident that Sedgwick will continue to strengthen our caring counts approach to all client relations and customer service,” said Mike Arbour, CEO of Sedgwick “We are excited to have such a well-respected and knowledgeable industry leader join our ranks and look forward to working together to achieve continued success.”

Mr Stills has a track record of industry success, including having management responsibility for over 3 million career casualty claims, overseeing the successful resolution of many complex and contested global insurance claims across all lines of insurance.

“Sedgwick is a company that continues to drive efficiency and innovation within the claims industry, and I am honored to join them in their efforts,” Stills said. “I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences with the company and aim to further ensure that all of Sedgwick’s clients’ needs are met to the highest standard.”

Mr Stills currently serves on the board of advisers of the Workers’ Compensation Institute, a not-for-profit educational organisation. He has worked with the Workers’ Compensation Research Institute, and he has served on the board of the Arkansas Self Insurers Guaranty Board. Last year, the Risk & Insurance Management Society inducted Stills to the Risk Management Honor Roll.
