Alexander has a BSc in Nautical Science and has sea-going practice from several types of vessels. Madeleine Granberg has joined the underwriting department, from another position within Alandia Insurance, as an assistant underwriter, focusing on the Norwegian and Danish markets.
We are also glad to welcome Johan Lång, our new Claims Manager P&I. He joined us on the 1st of July and he is now team leader of Alandia P&I claims team. Read more here.
Alandia P&I Claims team consists currently of three dedicated claims handlers, each with a special responsibility for their specific market area. Our P&I team has been subject to changes in the personnel, due to both maternity leaves, internal movements and individuals seeking for new challenges.
Jenny Appel with Sweden as market area and Josephine Thörnroos, with Norway and Denmark as market area, are both on leave. During the absences Jenny Appels tasks are handled by Christel Sundman and Josephine Thörnroos tasks by Henrik Tikkanen. Christel Sundman has been working at Alandia since 2009, mainly with H&M claims. Henrik Tikkanen started as a summer trainee in May 2017 and is finalizing his studies in law. Johan Lång´s specific market area is Finland.
Tarja Bergvall, the previous team leader is now focusing on her tasks as a Maritime lawyer and is advising both internally and externally.
With a claims handler for each market area, we will secure the best knowledge and service for each customer. Furthermore it will always be easy and convenient to approach the same claims handler from time to time.
We are convinced that we can meet the high standard of service and knowledge that is expected on claims handling, with current organization.
