Adjusters

Paul Whitman,
 

[ FCIP, Owner ]

 

Diverse Claims Adjusters Ltd opened in Edmonton in June of 2009. During it's first year Diverse was able to open a branch in Westlock in July 2009.

Paul began his adjusting career during the summer of 1992 while attending the Insurance program through Mount Royal College. After graduating from MRC in 1993 he carried on his claims career through the Personal Insurance in Calgary and then in Winnipeg through to 1998. In August 1998 Paul began his independent life and successfully managed an office in Fort McMurray on two separate occasions until moving to Edmonton in 2005.

Golf has been a strong passion over the years but it is taking a back seat while he and his wife are now enjoying raising a family. Their first child, a son, Samuel, was born at the start of 2011. They have recently been joined in the household by his daughter Madalyn who was born in the spring of 2013.

 
Mike Eisbrenner,
 

[ CIP - Partner - Adjuster ]

 

Mike joined Diverse Claims on November 18, 2013 after working as a staff adjuster for an insurer since September of 2010.

 

In June of 2016, he obtained his Level 3 Adjusters License. Mike proudly became a partner at Diverse Claims in June of 2018. When not at work, Mike primarily chases around his two young sons and he enjoys playing and/or watching hockey and golf when the time permits.

 

He also enjoys trying new foods, whiskeys, and craft beer with friends. When Mike met his wife, she introduced him to travelling due to her side job as a destination wedding travel agent. This eventually led to their marriage in Mexico in 2016 and many trips have followed. Their favorite stops include Mexico (obviously) San Francisco, and Hawaii – although escaping winter to visit his mother-in-law in Phoenix also has its perks.
