As a graduate from the Technical College in civil engineering, in 1976 Frans Kruis started to work at Grondboorbedrijf Mos Rhoon. In 1982, Frans joined H.J. Roelofs Assadeuren in Rotterdam as head of implementation and subsequently worked at both insurance companies and loss adjusting firms. For many years, Frans was the Operational Director at GAB Robins Takkenberg (now Cunningham Lindsey Nederland) and has been the Director of technical insurance at Erasmus Verzekeringen. From 2001 until 2006, Frans was the General Director at Arntz |van Helden B.V.
As far as loss adjustment is concerned, Frans is highly versatile in the following disciplines: CAR, Transport/ Assembly, Liability and Contractors’ Professional Indemnity. Drilling techniques and marine contracting are included in his specialisms, both nationally and internationally. Because of his extensive experience as a loss adjuster and the knowledge of both the technology and the insurance market, Frans is frequently appointed by parties as an arbitrator.
Frans has worked from our Rotterdam office since 2007.
