Leading legal expenses provider ARAG has appointed Chris Millward to the senior management position of Head of Claims, following an extensive recruitment process.

Chris joined ARAG in 2007 and already had more than 6 years of legal expenses insurance experience when he came to the company.

He replaces Paul Upton who has headed up ARAG’s claims function since the company’s UK launch in 2006. While leaving the company as an employee, Paul will continue to work with ARAG on a number of key strategic projects.

Tony Buss, ARAG’s Managing Director, commented on the appointment: “It was important that we conducted a thorough search and selection process for such a critical role in our business, but I am delighted that we have found the outstanding candidate to join our senior management team within the company.”

“I’m equally pleased that Paul will continue to work very closely with us, to help maintain the excellent standards on which ARAG has built its success during his decade of service, at this key stage in our growth.”
Chris took up his new role on June 1st.
He added: “I’m very excited to step up into this important position and appreciate the faith Tony and the ARAG management board have placed in me. I wish to thank Paul for all his help and hard work over the years; I have learned so much from him. I’m now looking forward to building on the fantastic reputation he has established for our claims service.”

Of equal concern is that, in the nuances of law practice, it is not always obvious what constitutes a win or a loss.
