|Dennis Hoppe Takes A Hop|
By Pauline Grant - May 12, 2005
Dennis Hoppe has hopped on over to Crum & Forster in Orange, California, to become their new claims manager of Workers’ Compensation claims. Dennis had been working as the Branch Manager of Gates McDonald in Santa Ana for the past less than two years, and just prior to that he had had a long and successful ten year career with Farmers’ Insurance Company in Orange.
The very recent and most tragic death of Claudia Bird created the opening for the claims manager at Crum & Forster in Orange, which Dennis Hoppe will now fulfill. Claudia had been with Crum & Forster for many years and had served as claims manager in Downtown Los Angeles just before that claims department was closed and moved to Orange. Her death was sudden and a shock to her colleagues at Crum & Forster and to many others in her extended professional and personal world.
But now that Dennis Hoppe is taking over the position left by Claudia Bird, somebody has to take over Dennis’ position at Gates McDonald in Santa Ana. That position will be filled next week by Jim Roberts, a resident of Long Beach, and the very recent former Unit Manager of the Costco Unit of Sedgwick CMS in Orange, California. Jim is a graduate of U.C.L.A. and has worked at Cal Comp & Fire, Superior National, and Crawford & Company.
Deona Navarro decided to go on an adventure before getting married and work as a temporary examiner in Bakersfield, California, at State Farm Insurance Company. Deona started her career as a claims assistant at Republic Indemnity in Encino in 1992, and then moved to Superior National in the year 2000. She was promoted to examiner at Superior National, which changed into Kemper Insurance Company and then transformed into Broadspire. Now, she might be being transformed by the oil fields of Bakersfield, and time will tell where she transforms from here…
