Ken holds two bachelor’s degrees: one in history and one in education. After graduation, he took a position as a telephone adjuster. Since then, he’s continued to work in the claims industry in various roles with increasing levels of responsibility.
Although he did not originally plan on a career in claims, he’s been very happy with his path. He especially enjoys the challenging and interesting nature of his work, which requires him to interact with a variety of people and apply decision making, critical thinking, negotiation and customer service skills.
