TORONTO, Sept. 1, 2016 /CNW/ -- Vericlaim Canada—a subsidiary of Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc., and leading national provider of loss adjusting and claims management solutions—has acquired the assets of RGM Claims Services, Inc., a licensed, independent adjusting company based in Mississauga, Ontario, specializing in municipal, automobile, product and environmental liability, as well as property, casualty and cargo losses.
Founded in 2003 by industry veteran Ross Macdonald, RGM is an especially strong player in the Canadian municipality and condominium claims markets. As part of the transaction, Macdonald and his colleagues have joined Vericlaim Canada's growing team.
"Investing in the continued expansion of our Canadian operations with acquisitions like RGM and opening new branch offices in the central and western provinces supports our national development strategy and ensures we are optimally positioned to provide responsive, best-in-class services for customers across Canada," said Michael Holden, president of Vericlaim Canada. "Together, we can offer unparalleled claims solutions and bring our 'caring counts' philosophy to new markets."
