Sedgwick CMS Names Tim Over Director of Sedgwick Caronia Healthcare Professional Liability Claims Administrators

    MEMPHIS, Tenn., March 1 /CNW/ -- Sedgwick Claims Management Services,
Inc. (Sedgwick CMS) announces the appointment of Tim C. Over as senior vice
president and director of its national healthcare professional liability (HPL)
claims services practice, Sedgwick Caronia.
    Sedgwick CMS established a major presence in healthcare professional
liability claims in 2006 through its acquisitions of Caronia Corporation, a
New York State-headquartered national provider of HPL claims services, and
Octagon Risk Services, a California-headquartered multi-line claims
administration and risk consulting organization with HPL operations
principally in the Western United States.  Caronia Corporation and the HPL
division of Octagon Risk Services have now been combined as Sedgwick Caronia.
    Over is a career risk services professional with twenty-six years of
experience in loss control, business process outsourcing, and casualty claims
program design and marketing.  He comes to Sedgwick CMS from Cambridge
Integrated Services Group, Inc. where he held a dual appointment as executive
vice president of the Complex Claims Division and as a vice president for
national business development.  With the Complex Claims Division he directed
the operation of professional liability, products liability and other
specialized claims services.  As a vice president for business development he
was responsible for the sale of casualty claims management, managed care, loss
control and all specialty claims services.
    "Tim Over is a great addition to our organization," said David A. North,
president and chief executive officer of Sedgwick CMS.  "We look forward to
working with him as we continue to enhance the value of our integrated service
offerings for healthcare organizations.
    "Our new HPL colleagues from Caronia and Octagon brought with them
outstanding reputations in the management of professional liability claims,
principally medical malpractice programs for healthcare organizations.  Our
strategy is to marry their demonstrated expertise and understanding of the
professional liability environment with the advanced operational, analytical
and technological resources of Sedgwick CMS.  The unification of these proven
senior teams as Sedgwick Caronia and the appointment of Tim Over are important
steps in the implementation of that strategy," North concluded.
