Mauricio Alonso Named CEO Of Crawford's Latin American, Caribbean Operations









ATLANTA, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Crawford & Company (NYSE: CRDA; CRDB), the world's largest independent provider of claims management solutions, has promoted Mauricio Alonso to the position of chief executive officer of the Company's Latin American and Caribbean operations.

Alonso was appointed senior vice president and regional managing director of Latin America and the Caribbean in March 2005. "Under Mauricio's guidance, Crawford's operations throughout those regions have grown significantly in recent years," said Kevin B. Frawley, chief executive officer, Property & Casualty – Americas. "This promotion recognizes the success of those efforts and our positive expectations for the future under his continued leadership."

Alonso has more than 20 years of experience in the insurance industry. Before joining Crawford, he was vice president of the Latin America Claims Division for AIG. He also served as claims manager, AIG Mexico; claims manager, AIG Brazil; regional director, AIG Mexico; and regional claims supervisor for Geico.

During Alonso's tenure, Crawford has developed a single, integrated IT platform, installed new country management and increased its Global Technical Services (GTS(SM)) presence in Latin America. GTS is Crawford's solution for large, complex claims. In addition, the Company has become a market leader in providing claims services for affinity programs in the region.

Due to the growing insurance market and Crawford's increasing presence in Latin America, the Company recently has increased its footprint in the area. Along with additional claims offices, Crawford has established six GTS hubs in the region to more effectively coordinate large loss adjusting services.

Originally from Nicaragua, Alonso earned a bachelor's degree in business administration management from Mercer University in Macon, Ga., and a master's degree in international business administration from United States International University in San Diego, Calif. He is fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
