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.

RSG has also relaunched its website - www.RiskSciencesGroup.com  - to reflect its new structure.

RSG and Broadspire are both business units of Crawford & Company (NYSE: CRDA; CRDB), the world's largest independent provider of claims management solutions. RSG serves as a RMIS provider for both Crawford's clients and standalone clients, and reports to Broadspire.
