Following several senior Loss Adjusting roles in Perth, London and Melbourne, John opened his own Loss Adjusting practice in WA in 2000.
Seeing first-hand the gap for specialist representation for industry he ‘crossed the insurance road’ in 2005, founding YourClaim, a Claims Preparation company.
In recent years, accomplished co-owner Graham Cox has increasingly led the traditional Claims Preparation instructions with John specializing in the more ‘distressed’ commercial insurance claim matters.
That specialist single service offering has formally been spun out of YourClaim and in to the ‘no win no fee’ Beanstalk Advisory – differentiating and simplifying both of the businesses.
On a personal level John’s a massive sports fan and claims to have been above average at a number of sports whilst falling short of being outstanding at any. In support of that attention seeking assertion he’s still stumbling around sport seeking to stay relevant. He can currently be found down the back half of the peloton in weekly rides continuing to stay very red in the face for very little improvement.
Since 2012 he has completed an annual week long charity bike ride (Nokor Tep) in Cambodia with money raised building a women’s hospital.
John is married to Joanna and they have a stocky 14 year old (Harry).
