Engle Martin & Associates, Inc. Announces Acquisition of United Services Administrators

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - February 9, 2010) - Engle Martin & Associates, Inc., a national insurance adjusting and claims management firm, announced today, that it has acquired United Services Administrators (USA). USA is a leading sports and entertainment third party claims administration firm that is focused on serving the insurance industry.

Formed in 2002 by chief executive officer Ernest Canfield, USA provides both critical onsite investigation and management of incidents arising from entertainment and motor sports events. Under the Engle Martin brand and service reputation, USA will have the ability to offer its clients a wider range of claims management services.

Canfield will retain responsibility for managing and servicing USA clients, including two of the largest operators and promoters of super speedway race track and motorsport themed entertainment activities in the United States.

"With this acquisition, USA immediately becomes an integral part of our TPA/Claims Management division (EMCAS), further expanding our claims management practice to meet the needs of this specialized niche market," says Kevin L. Engle, chief executive operator of Engle Martin.

With over 38 years experience servicing the insurance industry, Canfield began his career with Gay & Taylor Insurance Adjusters. During his 10 years at the company, Canfield worked as branch manager. He then joined Thomas Howell Group Ltd. and served as regional vice president and senior vice president/regional manager, where he was in charge of providing risk services to national race track owners. Prior to forming USA, Canfield served as senior litigation manager for AIG in the Transport Division.

"Engle Martin will help bring USA to the next level in servicing our loyal clients," says Canfield. "Their reputation for providing quality service and personnel is unmatched. I look forward to our clients experiencing the benefits of the Engle Martin name in the market."
