Leading loss adjuster renamed Cerno International New Zealand
From July 1, 2012, Cerno New Zealand will be the new name for McLaren’s Young International.
The company, one of New Zealand’s leading independent loss adjusters, has over 50 years experience and expertise with extensive international connections and partnerships.
The local business has always had strong ties with Cerno Australia, who rebranded in June 2011 following a company merger between MYI Australia and Freemans Australia. While it was a natural decision to adopt the same brand as their Australian neighbours, due to a focus on the Canterbury earthquake recovery, the New Zealand business has waited until now to rebrand.
Interim CEO Dean Garrod says “We chose the name Cerno in conjunction with our Australian colleagues because it is short and simple and means ‘resolve and determine’ in Latin. It’s an appropriate name for our business because it reflects the promises we make and keep every day.
“This rebranding is part of our progressive strategy to continue to grow the business, provide stronger support structures and build broader international networks and alliances while unlocking new products and services that will give greater value to our customers.”
Garrod says the company is working on a range of innovative products and services for its customers and has invested in a major upgrade of its IT systems, which is just the start. From July 1 the company URL will be www.cernonz.com.
