Crawford & Company : Risk Sciences Group Restructures into Two Divisions with New Leaders



Crawford & Company : Risk Sciences Group Restructures into Two Divisions with
                                 New Leaders

 

    Refreshed Operating Model Provides Greater Client Focus and Efficiency

ATLANTA (January 22, 2013) - Atlanta-based Risk Sciences Group (RSG^®), a
leading provider of risk management information systems (RMIS), announced a
strategic restructuring of the company's operations. The restructuring
involves dividing the company into two divisions, Bundled and Unbundled, and
the promotion of two experienced executives to manage the divisions.

According to Mark J. Stergio, CPCU, chief executive officer, Risk Sciences
Group, the Bundled division will partner with RSG's parent companies,
Broadspire^® (BSI) and Crawford & Company, to drive business domestically and
internationally, while Unbundled operations will focus on the growth and
service of RSG's direct clients. Heading up the new divisions are Sally Sinden
Williams, vice president of Bundled, and John Thurman, vice president of
Unbundled, both long-term leaders of BSI and RSG.

"Our Bundled division will be able to leverage the global footprint of
Crawford & Company, while Unbundled now provides more streamlined and direct
client contact, said Stergio. "I'm pleased to say that we have seen growth in
Bundled and Unbundled both domestically and internationally. Sally and John
have deep RMIS and RSG experience, and I'm confident they will lead their
divisions to increased success".

Stergio added that the company has also had strong new business growth enabled
by Risk Sciences Group's RMIS Dmitri Suite^®. This growth has been realized
via new commercial clients, insurance carriers, and insurance brokers. With
this growth comes the need for increased staff and RSG is now hiring. RSG is
looking for new staff members to immediately fill nine critical, newly-created
positions. The positions range from technical support, account management, and
sales support to billing support and product management. For more information

solutions. RSG serves as a RMIS provider for both Crawford's clients and
