Published: Wed May 05 2010


Insurance Services Office (ISO) Limited, the U.K.’s leading provider of personal injury claims evaluation solutions and services, has appointed Justin Goodwin as Claims Outcome Advisor (COA) Operations Manager. Mr Goodwin has more than 23 years experience in the Insurance industry and will head Client Services activities for the ISO COA solution, including information technology, account management, training, data analytics and project management. Mr Goodwin has been with ISO for more than nine years. His promotion follows a significant expansion in ISO’s COA customer base in EMEA during 2008 and 2009, with new signings that include Fortis and QBE.

In his previous positions as ISO's Senior Business Consultant, Mr Goodwin helped to develop the company’s first Personal Injury Claims Management tool for U.K. and Irish markets and was also responsible for the subsequent roll-out across the entire client-base. In addition, he spearheaded a number of critical initiatives, including designing new systems and implementing detailed roll-out strategies. In his new role as Operations Manager, Mr Goodwin will be responsible for day-to-day service to all customers, roll-out of all new deployments, and the smooth transition of customers to upgraded versions of the COA software and recently developed Bureau Services.

Joe Pendle, Client Services Director at ISO, said: "Justin is a valued and experienced member of the company – and a natural choice to lead our Client Services teams. His exceptional organisational skills and attention to detail, coupled with both management and consultancy knowledge, will further enhance our high-quality customer services – which sets us apart from our competitors. ISO performed well in 2008 and 2009, resulting in an increased customer base and creating a need for an experienced manager to lead the way."

Mr Goodwin added: "I am very pleased to be appointed to this new position. Being equated with good customer service is something that we have worked hard to achieve. ISO has a dedicated team that ensures our customers – both new and old – continue to receive our highest levels of service."
