WILMINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ametros welcomes Nicole Chappelle as Vice President of Settlement Solutions, leading the professional administrator’s strategy for comprehensive and innovative settlement initiatives.
“Nicole’s strong background in workers’ compensation, working with insurers, third-party administrators and other stakeholders in the settlement process, makes her well qualified to support our clients and partners and guide injured individuals through the settlement process,” said Mark Doherty, Executive Vice President of Sales.
Chappelle brings 28 years of experience to this newly created position, most recently as Claims Auditor Claims Central Audit for AmTrust Financial Services. She is a former Assistant Vice President for Gallagher Bassett and has served in litigation management, hearing representation, and claims supervision for several insurance companies. She started her career with Travelers Insurance.
Chappelle earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California in Santa Barbara and her expertise spans workers’ compensation statutes, regulations, and case law.
“Nicole brings a lot of value, especially right now as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is sharing its concerns with self-administered Medicare Set Asides and as various stakeholders, including payers and attorneys representing injured workers leverage professional administration more in the settlement process,” Doherty added.
