Kenneth’s career began in a Scottish auction house and he has always maintained links to the auctioneering world. Kenneth entered loss adjusting in 1975 when he joined Robert McTear & Co in Glasgow. Over the following years he worked primarily in the west of Scotland and provided assistance opening and working in several of McTear’s offices in the main cities of Scotland.

Thereafter, the company merged with Robins Davies & Little and Kenneth opened the new Robins office in Oban in 1990. During this time he spent periods of time handling claims arising from various disasters throughout the UK, including the south east of England storms and flooding in the north east.

In early 2002 Capita McLarens approached Kenneth and after joining them he took on responsibility for various large schemes involving local authority public buildings. During this period he also developed several High Net Worth accounts and handled these losses for several specialist Insurers and Lloyds underwriters.

Kenneth joined Amedeo Adjusting in 2007 and although based in Glasgow, he also worked in their Preston and London offices. Kenneth secured the nomination of the Archdiocese of Edinburgh and St Andrews, with a portfolio of more than 100 churches and associated halls and private dwelling houses.

In 2011 Kenneth joined Merlin Claims where he continued to focus on High Net Worth losses and also liaison with Brokers throughout Scotland. Kenneth has been heavily involved in all of the major incidents in Scotland over recent years such as the Lockerbie disaster in 1988, flooding in Perth in 1993 and again in Elgin in 1997.
