15 October 2019

MONTREAL, QC – ClaimsPro/IndemniPro, Canada’s leading provider of independent claims adjusting services and an SCM company, today announced the appointment of Sonia Ryme as Director, Specialty Risk Division (SRD) for Quebec. Ms. Ryme will provide technical oversight and overall support for the SRD’s Complex, Commercial, Industrial (CCI) and Transportation, Equipment & Cargo (TEC) teams operating out of ClaimsPro’s Montreal office.

With over 30 years of experience in the insurance industry, Ms. Ryme previously served as Director for Quebec and Eastern Canada for ClaimsPro/IndemniPro’s TEC team. Prior to joining ClaimsPro/IndemniPro, she worked for major national insurance providers in a variety of roles.

In her new role, Ms. Ryme will provide executive adjusting support and technical oversight for SRD claims; work in tandem with the SRD team to encourage new regional and national business opportunities and growth; and provide business development support and guidance for the SRD team. This position was previously held by Jean-Yves Bernier, who recently announced his retirement following an exemplary career in the industry. Mr. Bernier will work with Ms. Ryme to ensure a smooth transition before he leaves his position in early 2020.

“The SRD division is a pillar of our success in the Quebec region,” began Christopher Tirrell, ClaimsPro/IndemniPro’s Vice President Operations, Eastern Canada. “As much as we will miss Jean-Yves’ contributions, we are excited to have a dynamic leader like Sonia step into the role, and we are looking forward to working with her to implement our shared vision for the future.”

“Sonia Ryme brings a wealth of experience managing specialized adjusting teams to this role, and we look forward to continuing to build and strengthen our SRD team in Quebec with her guidance and support,” said Sean Forgie, Senior Vice President, SRD. “I’d also like to thank Jean-Yves for his guidance and technical oversight of the SRD team in Quebec over the past several years and wish him all the best in a well-deserved retirement, following a long and distinguished career.”

ClaimsPro/IndemniPro’s Specialty Risk Division offers specialized commercial loss claims services by utilizing the combined efforts of claims professionals and the expertise of Senior and Executive General Adjusters. The SRD team is comprised of commercial loss professionals—the largest of its kind in Canada—and provides services to clients throughout North America and internationally.
