NCA will maintain its independent operations within Worley and the senior management teams will actively collaborate to maximize the advantages of the combined platform for the entire client, adjuster, and employee bases. Michael Worley will remain Chief Executive Officer of the combined company, and Allen Carpenter and Jim Pearl will run day-to-day operations as Co-Presidents.
