Vericlaim names Bill Breslin president of managed repair networks
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., June 23, 2016 – Vericlaim announced the promotion of William Breslin to the role of president of its managed repair networks, First Choice Repair and Diamond Property Loss Solutions. Breslin’s appointment as leader of both networks is part of Vericlaim’s ongoing effort to consolidate the companies, which it acquired earlier this year.
Vericlaim’s managed repair network provides claim and service provider management to insurance carriers in both personal lines and commercial markets, offering a one-stop solution for securing high-quality repairs for property damage and restoration work. With a total of 1,600 contractors and a service area covering nearly 80 percent of the U.S. population, the network offers a suite of specialized services, including roofing, siding and gutters; water and mold remediation; and general construction.
A 40-year insurance industry veteran, Breslin brings to the position a wealth of technical and management experience in personal lines and commercial claim operations. He previously served as president of First Choice Repair, CEO of Wenonah Consulting, senior vice president of claims for USAA and chief operating officer at TriServ Alliance. Breslin holds a bachelor’s degree from St. Bernard College and completed continuing education and executive training at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
“Consolidating the First Choice Repair and Diamond networks under one umbrella will ensure that Vericlaim is optimally positioned to support carriers and their insureds in the aftermath of catastrophic and everyday property damage,” Breslin said. “I am excited about the opportunity to work with our colleagues, contractors and clients in building the nation’s premier managed repair network.”
In his new role, Breslin will oversee the Vericlaim managed repair teams based in Jacksonville, Florida, and Elk Grove Village, Illinois.
