26 October 2020
Peter Rink, head of Forensic Accounting and Complex Claims at Willis Towers Watson, passed away on October 11.
WTW said Mr Rink will be remembered as a family man who “brought integrity, relentless advocacy and genuine optimism to supporting clients in their times of crisis”. He was recognised globally within insurance industry circles for his expertise in resolving some of the largest and most complex claims of the past 30 years, particularly in mining.
“He will be greatly missed by his colleagues from Willis Towers Watson and we offer our deepest sympathies to Peter’s family and friends for their loss,” WTW said.
After starting out at KPMG, Mr Rink joined GAB Robins--now Sedgwick--in 1991 as a specialist business interruption (BI) adjuster. He co-founded MSM Loss Management in 1999, providing services to insureds following major losses. He joined Willis Towers Watson in 2018 as Asia Pacific head of its Forensic Accounting and Complex Claims practice.
Mr Rink was involved in BI claims across a broad range of industries including energy, manufacturing and food processing and was sought on major losses around the world by top mining companies.
