Since 2015, she has headed the claims department at Geerken + Partner GmbH, which currently has a team of ten employees supporting clients nationwide with the processing of claims.

Tom Geerken

Tom Geerken was an early adopter of the idea that specialization and a high level of technical expertise lead to better service.

As such, he established several successful specialty insurance brokerages during his 35+ years in business.

In 1990, founder Tom Geerken decided to focus exclusively on long-term care facilities and property. With the aim of further improving the service for his clients, he sold Geerken + Partner GmbH to the Ecclesia Group in 2005. In this way, the high level of professional expertise was merged with the market position of the Ecclesia Group.

As Managing Director, Tom Geerken is primarily responsible for the excellent development of Geerken + Partner.
