Industry leading public adjusting firm C3 Group welcomes new president and CEO, Matt Behrens
Mike Lindhurst, current President and Chief Executive Officer of C3 Group, has decided to step down. Lindhurst will focus on his role with the non-profit organization, American Adjuster Association (AAA). Matt Behren’s will take over as President and CEO of C3 Group.
Lindhurst and Behrens started C3 Group in 2012. Together they have built prominence in the industry by providing in-depth knowledge of the insurance claims process to fairly and equitably resolve property damage claims on behalf of policyholders.
In January of 2020, Lindhurst and Behrens co-founded AAA which seeks fair and balanced payments for property damage claims. AAA devotes its support to legislation by prioritizing the interest of property insurance policyholders in instances when they need to file an insurance claim.
The American Adjuster Association’s mission is, “to educate property owners, elected officials and the press that an insured must be afforded cost-balanced representation in the claim process.”
Lindhurst will make the transition to lend his undivided time and experience to continuing his work with AAA.
“After Representative Ford backed our proposed legislation (Illinois HB0142), AAA’s momentum really took off. It became evident that I would need to focus my time and energy into this organization if I wanted it to succeed on a national level,” Lindhurst said about his decision.
Behrens looks forward to continuing to grow C3 Group and improve the industry within his new position as President and CEO. Behrens and his team at C3 Group grant full support of Lindhurst’s move anticipating that it will result in improved legislation for policyholders nationally. C3 Group will continue to focus their expertise on negotiating property damage claims with carriers and ensuring comprehensive claim settlements under their new leadership.
Behrens commented on the changes, “I am very excited to see Mike chase this dream. C3 Group’s focus has always been to ensure policyholders receive a fair and equitable claim settlement. Unfortunately, we are limited by the laws of each jurisdiction we operate in. AAA’s mission is to empower policyholders and break down the barriers that prevent fair claim payouts.”
Behrens finds it important to ensure that C3 Group and its team members stand apart in their industry. After the 12 years he spent serving his community as a firefighter, Behrens’ most important objective is to put people first and maintain the responsibility of being a trustworthy advocate for policyholders. C3 Group supports the restoration industry with knowledge and education to policyholders, contractors and other public adjusters to build and strengthen the industry as a whole.
C3 Group consists of a highly experienced and nationally connected team of licensed public insurance adjusters, engineers and industry experts. The firm leads the industry in providing representation for commercial, industrial and multi-family properties nationwide. C3 Group’s makes it a priority to diligently contribute to the industry. Through education, detailed processes and policyholder advocacy, C3 Group ensures every claim they handle is accurate and fair.
