LONDON, UK--The TT Club has appointed Robert Kempkens as claims director. Based in London, he will be responsible for overseeing global claims handling for the TT Club. 

Kempkens joined the TT Club in 2006, becoming Regional Claims Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa in 2010. He has studied law at the University of Hamburg and holds an LL.M. in European and Public International law from Edinburgh University. After his traineeship at the Higher Regional Court of Hamburg he worked as a Rechtsanwalt in the shipping/transport departments of first Wessing Behrenberg-Gossler (now Taylor Wessing) and then Ince & Co in Hamburg. He holds an Executive MBA in Shipping and Logistics from Copenhagen Business School.

Kempkens replaces Phil Nichols who has retired after having served as claims director at the TT Club for 6 years. In his time at the TT Club Nichols was involved in the development and implementation of a new claims and fee payments system and introducing audits for zero and low value claims.

“The role of Claims Director is at the heart of the Club, since it is the claims function that ensures Members’ claims are paid and that assists in helping resolve Members’ trading problems. Robert’s deep expertise in the management of claims and understanding of their implications for transport operators’ will ensure that he leads this key area for the Club extremely well, and I am confident that Robert will be a driving force for the Club,” said Charles Fenton, CEO of the TT Club.
