The Sedgwick Institute will serve as an incubator for some of the best and brightest minds to advance the conversations that affect all the players in our industry, including injured and ill members of the workforce, insurance carriers, employers, property owners, third party claims administrators, brokers, lawmakers and medical providers. The institute’s thought leaders will work individually and collaboratively to examine complex challenges facing the various stakeholders in our space and propose innovative options and solutions to improve public and private decision making on these issues.
To fulfill its evolving agenda, the Sedgwick Institute will leverage both full- and part-time expertise from business, government, academia and other industry sources through visiting or full-time fellow positions. While no specific minimum criteria are anticipated for appointment, related decisions about institute appointments will be primarily a function of the issues selected to populate the agenda as it develops and evolves.
Christopher Mandel, Sedgwick’s senior vice president of strategic solutions, will lead the institute and direct its agenda.
Richard Victor, Ph.D., has been named the institute’s first senior fellow.
Anthony LoSasso was named the first visiting fellow on October 1, 2017.
