Leading specialist loss adjuster, QuestGates, today announces the launch of a new service handling agricultural claims following the appointment of Frank McGaffney to its growing team.

Frank joins QuestGates from Agrical Loss Adjusters, part of McLarens UK, with 25 years’ adjusting experience, the last 10 of which have been as a specialist agricultural adjuster. This includes experience of handling large and complex losses across high net worth, agricultural property, livestock, agricultural revenue, landed estates, forestry and growing timber, aquaculture and agricultural liability.

Last year QuestGates appointed two adjusters with extensive agricultural experience and they will be joining Frank’s new team with immediate effect.

QuestGates Director, Colin Ganson, comments: “We are delighted to welcome someone of Frank’s calibre to launch this new service. While it naturally complements our existing environmental team, agricultural claims can be incredibly complex. This is a niche area and the handling of claims requires an appropriately experienced adjuster who can deal with the frequent logistical challenges as well as be familiar with agricultural and forestry practice. We believe the combination of Frank’s knowledge, our tech expertise and our commitment to putting our customers at the heart of everything we do will create a compelling new proposition.”

Frank McGaffney adds: “I’ve been thoroughly impressed by the culture of service that QuestGates has built – no doubt the secret to its success. I’m really excited to be joining the team and developing a new service that will hopefully mirror the excellence of its existing divisions.”
