Albert Risk Management Consultants acquires Bickmore from Sedgwick
Updated: Nov 16
MEMPHIS, Tenn., January 31, 2020 – Albert Risk Management Consultants, one of the nation's largest independent risk management and insurance consulting firms, has agreed to purchase the assets of Bickmore from Sedgwick, a leading global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions. The transaction is scheduled to close February 1, 2020.
Sedgwick acquired the assets of independent risk management consulting firm Bickmore as a result of the company’s purchase of York Risk Services Group in September of 2019.
Albert Risk Management Consultants focuses on risk management audits, ongoing risk management advice and services, insurance procurement assistance and claims management. They offer their services to clients worldwide across a wide range of fields and industries.
Under the terms of the purchase agreement, the entire risk consulting team will join the Albert Risk Management Consultants and continue to serve their same customers.
“We at Sedgwick feel strongly that risk consulting clients will be best served by Albert Risk Management – we’re leaving them in great hands,” said Dave North, Sedgwick President and CEO. “Now, independent of a TPA, these professionals will be able to carry on their business with like-minded experts in the independent consulting field.”
“We hit a home run for both our clients and the firm by acquiring such an experienced and accomplished team” commented Stuart Cowart, President of Albert Risk Management Consultants.
Backing this acquisition is Catherine Wells, who led Bickmore’s consulting practice under York. With excitement on moving forward, Wells says, “We are pleased that we can continue to serve our clients with increased resources within an organization that has the same mission and core competencies.”
