LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 10, 2022--
Crawford & Company® (NYSE: CRD-A and CRD-B), the world’s largest publicly listed independent provider of claims management and outsourcing, is pleased to announce it has strengthened its capabilities in the Middle East by adding the highly experienced and well-respected Miller International team in the UAE.
