Senior Claims Director returns to Thomas Miller Americas


Thomas Miller Americas, provider of market leading insurance services, has appointed Noreen Arralde as senior claims director in its New Jersey office.

Arralde rejoins Thomas Miller Americas from P&I provider Skuld, where she spent two years, serving as a Vice President, covering the New York metropolitan area. She previously worked at Thomas Miller Americas from 2012-2018, following 13 years with a US litigation firm and six years as claims manager for a global container shipping company.

A former litigator, she has nearly three decades experience in the legal sector, and has extensive knowledge of the maritime claims space. Arralde is well-known for her expertise in the defense of US bodily injury claims, particularly in the cruise sector. Her expertise will further strengthen the existing US Bodily Injury team.

Leo Kirchner, President and CEO, Thomas Miller Americas, says: "Noreen's return to Thomas Miller Americas is a very welcome development. It significantly strengthens our already well established US bodily injury expertise. Her dedication, deep knowledge and practical experience as a trial attorney will fit well with our enviable roster of claims personnel."

Leanne O'Loughlin, Regional Director, UK P&I Club and UK Defence Club, says: "Noreen's extensive exposure to complex cases during her previous tenure with us has been widely recognised by UK P&I Club Members. We look forward to her contribution and positive impact in maintaining and developing excellent service levels for our Members in the Americas region."
