SCM Insurance Services is pleased to announce the launch of its new brand, “Xpera Risk Mitigation and Investigation.” Xpera is a result of the merger between Forensic Investigations Canada (FIC), SCM’s previous risk and investigation brand, and CKR Global, a national leader in investigation and risk mitigation, purchased by SCM in August 2014.
Aligning with SCM’s long-term plan for strategic growth and drive to grow its core services it a way that ultimately benefits its clients, SCM identified CKR Global as a way to expand its market share and client offerings.
“The acquisition of CKR Global enhances our ability to service our clients’ needs across the country,” said SCM CEO Bob Fitzgerald. “We are positioned to offer customized risk mitigation and investigation solutions to our clients in ways the industry has never experienced before.”
As part of the SCM group of companies, Xpera will operate as a distinct entity, remaining committed to FIC and CKR Global’s focus of risk mitigation and investigation. Staffing will be unchanged, functioning under the new name and brand, Xpera.
“Xpera is made up from the same exceptional people that our clients have come to know and trust,” said Robert Burns, President of Xpera. “We are proud to say, that with over 700 personnel and 23 offices across Canada, there have been no service interruptions during the transition phase as the companies fully integrated. Our new name exemplifies our experience and expertise in the industry.”
SCM’s continued expansion in the risk mitigation and investigation market exemplifies its commitment to providing clients with a sophisticated continuum of insurance and related services.
