Agencies and Representation
SKC started as a marine and non-marine survey company. Yet due to the background of its founder; Amjad Kawar, and his pre SKC market experience of managing Lloyd’s Agency in Amman for ten years while also being an in-house surveyor and claim adjuster, gave the impression that the company is only specialized in marine surveys. Soon after establishment, SKC served renowned names like McLarens (McLarens Toplis at the time), Marsh, PICC, Galram, in addition to the local insurance market.
