|The Tale Of The Two Corrigans|
By Pauline Grant - November 8, 2005
It's Tom Corrigan, not Scot Corrigan, who is the new claims manager of SRS (Specialty Risk Services) in Pleasanton, California. In my last column (which I took down) I made an error of mistaken identity, and reported that Scot Corrigan was the new claims manager of SRS in Pleasanton.
That's because a headhunter by the name of Jeff Westbrook told me so, and I thought headhunters always knew everything. But, I found out otherwise. So, I retract what I wrote! It's Tom Corrigan now at the helm of the workers' compensation claims department at SRS's Pleasanton office.
Scot Corrigan is a supervisor at Cambridge Integrated Services Group in San Diego, California. Scot graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in History, and he started his work comp claims career in California at Golden Eagle in San Diego. Just prior to starting at Cambridge in May of 2005, he was the Director of Managed Care at ACCA in San Diego.
So, Scot looks pretty well established in San Diego, and Pleasanton would be quite a commute. But it all looked plausible to me, since he came all the way to California from Chicago. Therefore, I am grateful to Robert Reiner, an examiner at Cambridge in San Diego, for writing to me and letting me know there is no way Scot could be in two places at the same time.
Kate Setyan, who is a veteran workers' comp examiner from Fremont Compensation and then Cambridge (she moved with the files to Cambridge when Fremont closed), is now an examiner for the City of Los Angeles, which is obviously in Los Angeles, under veteran supervisor Peter Hernandez.
Speaking of Los Angeles, the notorious "County" account is leaving Cambridge at year's end and going to AIMS (Acclamation Insurance Management Services, Inc.). Rumor has it that AIMS is opening up an office in Valencia, California, but no known address has been released for circulation yet. (At least I haven't gotten my hands on it yet.)
All that I know about AIMS is they currently have their main office in Sacramento, California, and that the main principal or one of the principals of AIMS is Leonard Russo, the veteran TPA owner of the former Leonard Russo & Associates (or was it Adjusters?). Leonard Russo handled the RTD account at an office in the Los Angeles area back in the 1980s before it was called the MTA.
Okay, all of you "oldies but goodies" from L.A. Remember the RTD? :-) Trivia question: what did RTD stand for?
