LV= bolsters fraud team with new recruit from the Insurance Fraud Bureau

Press release: 26/05/2011

LV= has bolstered its fraud team with the appointment of a new fraud manager, Linda Rees, from the Insurance Fraud Bureau.

Linda is the latest addition to LV=’s growing fraud prevention team. Linda has been recruited to develop and implement the fraud strategy, intelligence and investigations for organised crime and will report to Ursula Coulibaly, head of financial crime operations.

Before joining LV= April 2011, Linda was a case strategy and development manager at the Insurance Fraud Bureau where she was responsible for the day-to-day management of the IFB portfolio of industry-wide fraud investigations, as well as being the main point of contact for law enforcement and IFB customers on all live operations. Prior to this, she worked for several other insurers including RBS, Groupama and AXA.

Ursula Coulibaly, head of financial crime operations at LV=, said: “There has been a marked increase in financial crime since the beginning of the economic downturn and we have been strengthening our fraud prevention team to combat this. Linda is a welcome addition to the team and her experience and knowledge from the Insurance Fraud Bureau will be particularly valuable driving the LV= organised fraud strategy.”

Linda Rees said: “I am delighted to join a growing company like LV= that has already demonstrated strong innovation in fraud combating initiatives. I believe the experience I have gained elsewhere in the industry will help me to develop a market leading organised fraud strategy for the company.
