“Bringing together the talent, expertise and robust capabilities of our esteemed organizations under the Sedgwick banner will allow us to provide a unified, end-to-end service solution to clients around the world,” Tutoki said. “Integrating our services and further growing our reach redefines what we can offer the global market.”
