UNITED STATES, January 11, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Agribusiness Risk Services, LLC (ARS), a leading Farm / Ag loss control and claims administration company, announced today the promotion of Alex Shaw, AIC, AFIS, to General Manager. Shaw’s promotion comes at a time of rapid growth and expansion for ARS, as the company’s methods and technology have continued to attract new carrier and MGA clients that recognize the special value delivered by a niche Farm / Ag claims and risk services organization.
Shaw is an accomplished claims and risk services professional, with over 14 years of experience in property and casualty insurance claims, supported by an additional 20 years of previous experience in construction. Prior to his recent promotion, Shaw’s title at ARS was Claims and Inspections Supervisor, a role he held since 2019. In addition to directly handling day to day administration of sophisticated claims and loss control services across a 39 state footprint, Shaw has been a leading pioneer in developing and implementing methods and technology for identifying risk factors in poultry confinement structures.
“Since joining the company in 2019, Alex has distinguished himself as the top poultry confinement claims and risk services professional in the business,” said William G. Johnson III (“Will”), CEO of ARS parent company Agribusiness Risk Underwriters (ARU). “Alex has demonstrated a relentless drive to learn, grow, and improve professionally, which is a trait we hold dear and which has been the foundation of the ARU group of companies delivering unprecedented results in a historically-challenging space. Alex embodies the toughness and entrepreneurial spirit that is required to be a true innovator, and I am proud to work alongside him as we continue to tackle larger and more sophisticated business challenges. In addition, there is no doubt in my mind that the best is yet to come for Alex, and I look forward to seeing him push himself and ARS to new heights in 2023 and beyond.”
Outside of ARS, Shaw is the immediate Past President, serving on the Emeritus Group of the Greater Kansas City Claims Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to education, professional development, and networking for all local professionals involved in the claims process (adjusters, carriers, banks, brokers, etc.). In addition, Shaw was recently selected to serve as one of nine experts on the National Advisory Council of the the National Association of Independent Insurance Adjusters.
