"I am very excited to be joining Accident Support Services International in its U.S. market entry. Leveraging its highly successful 24 year history in the Canadian marketplace, the company is well positioned to help transform the U.S. auto insurance industry accident reporting and claims process and assist policyholders involved in accidents. The unprecedented demands upon law enforcement and on their budgets will continue to constrain on-scene accident reporting - ASSI will fill that void," says Eagleson. "By providing convenient, professionally managed and customer service focused Collision Reporting Centers (CRC's) in partnership with local police agencies, ASSI will increase policyholder CSI and ensure the availability of comprehensive, accurate and near real-time accident reports for insurers to more quickly initiate the FNOL and triage process and reduce cycle time and loss costs. ASSI is assembling an experienced U.S. team of industry professionals who have already begun laying the foundation for success and I am excited to help lead this effort to fundamentally transform this critical aspect of auto insurance claims service while also enabling law enforcement to more effectively deal with higher and more critical priorities."
Steve Sanderson, founder and President of ASSI said, "Ken Eagleson's experience, along with his well respected reputation for bringing value and obtaining tremendous results for the carriers he has partnered with in the past speaks volumes as to his work ethic. We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome Ken to our Accident Support Services International team as we open the first Collision Reporting Center in the United States. We are confident that Ken's experience, combined with our expertise and proven service will bring tremendous value and benefit to the U.S. market."
