Professional Profile

Mr. Denison has been handling property insurance claims on behalf of damaged policyholders since 1982, shortly after graduation from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management. Karl attained the designation Certified Professional Public Adjuster (CPPA) from the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA) in 1990.

Along with adjusting large loss claims, Karl is the GGG/AI Catastrophe Team leader, and in this capacity organized our response to many large property loss events, including the 2005 hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan & Jeanne, Katrina and Rita; the 2008 hurricanes Gustav and Ike; and Super Storm Sandy in 2012. As the lead adjuster on the multi-million dollar fire loss adjustment for The New York Palace Hotel, Karl was able to bring numerous parties to the table (including multiple insurance carriers) to agree on a joint loss agreement between the boiler & machinery carriers and the property carriers.

Karl has been the lead engagement partner on many significant claims, such as those for the Belleview Biltmore Hotel; Bretlin Needlebond; Carriage Industries; Dixie Yarns; General Cigar/Culbro Tobacco; Genesis Realty; Hercules Realty/SC Diamond; Newark Public Schools; New Orleans Public Schools; North Hudson Sewerage Authority; Stellar Advisors; Streco Fibers; TAMKO Building Products; Tidewater Fibre Treetop Development; and Trinity Hotels.

Mr. Denison served as President of The National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA) for 2014-2015.
