|Cecilia Hernandez, of Dunn Edwards Paint Stores, remembers...|
By Pauline Grant - November 16, 2005
Cecilia Zapien-Hernandez was gracious enough to write to me after my last column and tell me that Dominic Russo, Leonard Russo’s son, is the new President of AIMS (Acclamation Insurance Management Services), a TPA in California, which is taking over the DPSS L.A. County Account now being handled by Cambridge Integrated Services Group, Inc., in Pasadena. AIMS will soon handle L.A. County DPSS starting in January 2006 in a branch office rumored to be opening in Valencia, California.
Ms. Hernandez is currently the Workers’ Compensation Manager for Dunn-Edwards Corporation, located in Los Angeles. Cecilia also tells me that she worked for LJR Insurance Services (Leonard Russo) in the 1980s, and that the name later changed to LJR/Adjustco. The RTD, which stood for Rapid Transit District, was one of the accounts handled by LJR in a Los Angeles Area location office during that 1980s time period. Later, the RTD disbanned, and a new organization formed called the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA).
So, my imagination is now anticipating a new question: why did RTD dissolve and allow MTA to replace it? Not being a Los Angeles native, and being rather ignorant of L.A. history, I hope for reader response on this one! Thank you and I love you in advance!
