George, who became a registered nurse more than 20 years ago, has also been named senior vice president and senior healthcare advisor for Sedgwick.
The company provides claims and productivity management services and specialises in areas such as worker compensation, disability, fraud and Medicare compliance.
Sedgwick president and CEO David North said, “The nexus between health care reform, occupational medicine, quality, and claims management is largely uncharted territory.
“I can think of no one more qualified than our own Kimberly George to help us and our valued clients navigate this increasingly complex and ever-changing environment.”
Private equity firms Stone Point and Hellman & Friedman agreed to pay $1.1bn for Sedgwick in 2010.
Other shareholders at that time included Thomas H. Lee Partners and Evercore Capital Partners.
