What does winning a 2020 CLM Professional of the Year Award mean for you?

"It is an endorsement of the innumerable contributions that so many extraordinary people around me make to help ensure my success every day. I am so fortunate to be surrounded by my MGC family, our clients, and the CLM community, who all challenge and motivate me to always seek to do better.”

Rusty Goudelock, Attorney, MGC Law Insurance Defense. CLM Outside Counsel Professional of the Year.

“Being a CLM finalist was very rewarding, but to win this award was humbling, fantastic, and exciting! Kudos to my fellow nominees. I was so happy CLM was proactive offering the virtual webinars and the award announcements. My daughter, Emilie, was with me and nearly broke my eardrums screaming with excitement!”

Cathy Gicker, Senior Claims Service Consultant, Allstate Insurance Company. CLM Claims Management Professional of the Year.

“Winning this year’s award has been a strange experience. COVID-19’s effect on the hospitality industry left little room for celebratory emotions. However, it serves as a wonderful reminder that breaking from the old risk management and claims script will lead to many celebrations in the future for myself, my employees, and my claimants.”

Avery Barrett, Manager of Risk and Safety, On the Border. CLM Young Industry Professional of the Year.

“I am incredibly honored and humbled to have been selected as the winner of CLM’s Young Outside Counsel Professional of the Year award, and to have even been considered alongside my fellow nominees. Celebrations during these times are constantly shifting, but my children loved watching the virtual celebration on daddy’s nervous knees.”

Alex M. Chazen, Attorney, Kahana & Feld LLP. CLM Young Outside Counsel Professional of the Year.

“CLM is the premier organization for litigation management professionals. As such, I’m extremely honored to win this award. The award also recognizes the importance of the work our team is doing at GB to help our clients and the law firms that serve them to improve performance and deliver better claims results.”

Scott Schafer, Vice President, Gallagher Bassett Services. CLM Litigation Management Professional of the Year.
