Directors and Loss Adjusters
John Pearson | Richard Pearson | Franco Louw
   
John Pearson (Managing Director)
 

1969 – 1982

John served in the British South African Police and retired as a Commissioned officer in the Criminal Investigations Department. During his service he attended a siege and hostage training course at the Middlemoor Police Collage in Exeter, United Kingdom.

1982 – Present

John moved to South Africa where he took up a position as an International Loss Adjuster and later found his niche and began specializing in the handling of Diamond and Gold related losses which required specialist investigation.

John grew his credentials and began conducting security surveys on a number of high value facilities. John has worked exclusively throughout Africa covering the Gold and Diamond trade and has also had direct involvement with the investigation of large burglary incidents involving Banks, Cash in Transit robberies, Bullion Theft as well as large losses in other African Countries.

John was instrumental in assisting the South African Police Services with the 2001 and 2006 airport robberies at Johannesburg / O.R Tambo International Airport where bank notes valued at US$21 million were stolen. John assisted the Police and large recoveries were subsequently made.

John specializes in crime related work and has extensive experience and contacts within most countries in Africa. He is well known in the Lloyds of London market and has been responsible for providing security advice to some of the larger Platinum, Gold and Diamond operations in Southern Africa.

Richard Pearson (Director)
 

Richard has been trading as a Specialist Loss Adjuster dealing in Gold, Diamond, Cash in Transit and Heavy Haulage Vehicle / Goods in Transit losses since joining John in 2002. Due to the knowledge and experience gathered whilst working with John, Richard has been exposed to numerous high value losses in South Africa as well as neighbouring countries which has required extensive investigation work. This has given Richard the opportunity to meet and develop a network of contacts both within South Africa and neighbouring countries who can be called upon at short notice to render assistance as and when required.

At times it is common to see Richard assisting the South African Police Services when executing raids on known suspects in and around the various townships of South Africa resulting in numerous recoveries and arrests.

Franco Louw (Investigator)
 

Franco started out in the catering industry eventually becoming a chef at some of the finest restaurants in Johannesburg. Due to the long hours and as a result of the lifestyle, Franco put his curriculum vitae out and was immediately employed by Santam during 2002 introducing him to the Insurance industry.

During his time with Santam, he specialised in the fields of underwriting, policy screening as well as quality control. He managed to obtain a full NQF level 4 qualification through Inseta in the Short term Insurance Industry field.

He also gained claims experience whilst dealing with both personal and commercial claims. In August 2008 he joined a local Insurance Company as an in-house loss adjuster and specialised in investigating burglaries, fire, as well as general peril losses.

Franco joined John Pearson and Associates (Pty) Limited in October 2010 and is currently understudying John and Richard to advance his career in this industry. Franco has applied to the International Loss Adjusting Association and his membership will be confirmed in October this year following his one year internship at John Pearson & Associates (Pty) Limited.
