Background

Thomas Tan graduated with Bachelor of Commerce (Economics and Finance) from the Curtin University of Technology, Perth, Western Australia in 1998. He started his loss adjusting career in our Johor Bahru office in late 1998. During the first 6 years of his loss adjusting career, he had in addition to handling his own cases, also involved in investigating several multi-million Ringgit fire losses. In 2003, Thomas received The Best Student Award (AMII) by the Malaysian Insurance Institute for his excellent academic achievement.

In view of his outstanding performances and passion to the profession, Thomas was seconded to start our Melaka office in the 3rd quarter of 2003. Our Melaka office and operations were built and developed by Thomas from scratch.

New staff were employed and trained thereat with our professional services well accepted by Insurers since then. In a short period of 3 years, Thomas had built up our Melaka office to be the leading and largest loss adjusting outfit in Melaka. He has successfully dealt with many large, complicated and fraudulent fire losses as well as other classes of losses in Southern
Peninsula. Malaysia Assignments recently handled and closed by him comprise multi-million Ringgit claims involving lead-frame manufacturer, furniture manufacturer, power plant losses, engineering losses etc.

Following his successful development of our Melaka office and after having a successor in place, he has been relocated back to our Johor Bahru office to carry out his enlarged role in January 2010. Thomas is currently our Assistant General Manager in-charge of our Southern Region offices in Johor Bahru and Melaka. In line with his new role, Thomas has been relocated from our Melaka office and is based in our Johor Bahru office. Thomas is a hands-on person and he gets directly involved in all aspects of claims investigations and loss adjusting. In addition, he is also actively involved in carry out training of adjusters and CPD training courses for our clients in both English and Mandarin.
