Maritime

A wide range of materials are used to build boats, and these materials are constantly being improved. In addition to using traditional structural materials such as steel, wood, and polyester, carbon constructions are now used.

Furthermore, the luxury yachting sector has developed significantly, with increasingly larger boats and higher construction costs, and more and more high-tech equipment on board such as GPS, etc

Upped economic stakes and ever more technologically-advanced materials mean that our loss adjusters must be responsive and competent.

Our loss adjusters have expertise in the legal, technical, economic, and financial aspects of the maritime and pleasure boating world. They have perfect understanding of the sometimes tragic consequences of a leak in a boat or a weakness in the structure of a carbon mast, and respect the interests of the various stakeholders.

 

OUR LOSS ADJUSTERS

Bastien SOULET
Loss adjuster
+

I have always been interested in cars and automotive mechanics, and decided to work in the field at an early age. After taking part in technical training, I became a state-certified automotive loss adjuster. I then worked for a firm specialising in mechanical breakdowns, legal protection, and automotive liability.
I've been a loss adjuster at GM Consultant since 2016, and specialise in public liability for automotive professionals and vehicles in general. I handle claims in the north-west of France with patience and attention to detail.
In my spare time I restore old cars and take part in various motor sports.

Didier GIRAUD
Loss adjuster
+

During my 27 years as an officer in the French Navy, I honed my ability to work in a team and learned technical skills about all the components of a warship, including nuclear reactors. A few years ago, when I got back to land, I put my knowledge of nuclear technology to use by working in engineering and engineering support.
I've been a loss adjuster at GM Consultant since 2013. I primarily handle claims in the field of energy production, but also get called in for all types of industrial activities, e.g., food, oil, automotive, etc.
I return to the sea, where I was taught rigor and feel most free, as often as I can.

Erik MILHOMME
Loss adjuster - South East Manager
+

After studying engineering and gaining experience in financial auditing, I joined GM Consultant as an IT loss adjuster, then became a loss adjuster for finance in 2007. I then developed and directed the Financial Risks division before becoming part of the company's management committee in 2015.
As Manager of the South-East Region, I support the loss adjusters on a daily basis, to share my knowledge and promote synergy between our Talents.
Customer satisfaction is important to me. I believe damage surveys should be carried out with a sharp eye for detail and a tactful approach to finding resolutions.
Keen on sailing, I handle unexpected situations calmly both at sea and at work.

Fabien CHERMETTE
Senior Loss adjuster - Art and Media Specialist
+

I entered the workforce as a trader for a major bank, then spent many years as a producer. In 2004 I joined GM Consultant, where I set up the Arts and Media division.
Specialising in the artistic professions, I meticulously evaluate financial losses caused by the cancellation or postponement of audiovisual and musical productions (and sometimes sporting events) when an artist is unavailable, weather conditions are unfavourable, or administrative authorisation is revoked.
My attraction to the art world carries over into my free time: I have painted for many years.

Fabien OILLIC
Loss adjuster
+

With extensive experience in port handling (after-sales service for manufacturers, renovation of equipment, technical manager of a port terminal), I joined GM Consultant in 2015 as a loss adjuster for technical and industrial risks.
Specialising in port handling equipment, public works equipment, industrial facilities, and rotating machines, I examine situations from every angle to provide highly detailed analyses for cases ranging from machinery breakdowns to public liability.

Philippe KERRAULT
Loss adjuster
+

I have always been drawn to the sea. At a young age I joined the French Navy, where I gained solid technical skills along with a sense of discipline and attention to detail. After 17 years at sea, I worked as an independent maritime loss adjuster for over 20 years.
Since 2015 I have been a loss adjuster for Maritime & Transport risks for GM Consultant, where I work on claims in all branches of marine activity and industry.
I am currently renovating a 32-tonne teak trawler. I am concerned about the future of our oceans and coasts.
