Hamann began her career at administration pioneer Poorman-Douglas in 1995 as an entry-level claims analyst.

Hamann will drive strategy, with a focus on quality execution in all facets of the business, in order to serve client needs and expectations. She will be responsible for managing client services and operations, Epiq’s Canadian and EMEA offices, as well leading the product development and data consulting teams.

“I am excited to continue building on our success,” said Hamann. “We have an exceptional team, great clients, and unmatched global resources to take our performance to the next level and expand our market position.”  

Hamann most recently served as managing director at Epiq.
