John subsequently specialised in larger theft losses and fraud investigative work and was successful in prosecuting and repudiating various high value claims. In 1986 John gained his ACII qualification.

Following the hurricane in 1987, John was asked to open an office for a national practice in Sevenoaks and dealt with many of the larger losses before managing an office in Essex where he was responsible for developing the business and training staff. In 1993 John completed his Masters degree at Lancaster University Management School and following a period of IT consulting work John returned to the Loss Adjusting profession in 1996 working as a Senior Adjuster in London.

Having acquired greater experience of commercial losses John joined the "in-house" loss adjusting team at Royal & Sun Alliance and during the following eight years he dealt with a wide variety of property damage and business interruption losses for SME's and Global Clients, as well as handling High Net Worth claims.
