Claims Associates is pleased to announce the hiring of a new Multi-Line Adjuster, Nick Hemme. Nick started with us during our busy season in September, and got right into the rapid pace of an independent adjusting company. This wasn’t too hard for Nick, as he came to Claims Associates with some independent adjuster experience; he had spent 1 ½ years working as an adjuster with an independent out of Alexandria, MN.
Not only did Nick have adjusting experience, he also has already earned his Associate In Claims designation through The Institutes, Risk and Insurance Knowledge Group. This program improves technical claim-handling skills, communication and negotiation skills, good-faith claim-handling abilities, and in-depth policy knowledge.
Nick’s education also includes a 3 day program earning him certification as a Haag Certified Roof Inspector – Residential.
Prior to starting his career as an adjuster, Nick completed a Claims Representative Program through Ridgewater College in Willmar, MN. His interest in an adjusting career began while he was in high school in Luverne, MN. His cousin is co-owner of an independent adjusting firm, and Nick had the opportunity to learn what it meant to be an adjuster through that connection.
Nick grew up on a farm outside Hardwick, MN, where his parents still live. Nick attends Zion Lutheran Church in Hardwick, MN and in his spare time, enjoys spending time with his girlfriend and her 4 year old daughter, as well as bow-hunting deer in MN, and soon to try SD.
Welcome Nick, we’re glad to have you on our team.
