DENVER, June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- EPS Settlements Group announced today the company's refreshed brand, including its new name – Arcadia – and logo.
Arcadia was born out of a desire to create long-term financial security and an improved quality of life for injured people. The company was founded in 1972 by Gerald Sullivan and others in California after children were born with limb deformities to women who had used the drug Thalidomide during pregnancy to ease morning sickness. Arcadia developed structured settlements to address people's long-term needs using periodic payments.
Arcadia is a Greek word meaning an ideal setting in harmony with nature. It connotes a place of shelter where people find peace, security, resolution and strength. It expresses the company's values of care and compassion. The name is steeped in historical significance and aligned with the company's own history as the structured settlements industry leader.
"It's time to build for tomorrow on today's strengths," said ArcadiaPresident Brad Cantwell. "We did a significant amount of research and it was clear that our former name didn't connect. We identified a great opportunity to leverage our industry-leading position and take our company to the next level. In addition to renaming and rebranding our company as Arcadia, we have crystalized our mission, and we are aligning our values to ensure they are clear and present in all our communications, intensifying our focus on our distinct customer-service model of care and professionalism."
Arcadia's leadership team believes that the new name and rebrand will deepen the relationships between its clients and Arcadia's 160 settlement professionals. In the past year, the company has strengthened its service offerings and invested in innovative products across 50 offices serving all 50 states, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
"At Arcadia, our passion for helping and empowering people is at the heart of everything we do," said Cantwell. "The challenges facing our clients grow more complex every day. With an average experience level of over 15 years, our expert team of consultants helps people navigate the evolving complexities of injury claims with experience, well-proven strategies, compassion and innovation."
Arcadia (formerly EPS Settlements Group) helps resolve conflicts, reduce litigation expenses and create long-term financial security for people involved in personal injury claims through settlement consulting services. The company has a rich history as the first structured settlements firm in the world. In more than 45 years in business, Arcadia has helped settle over 325,000 claims involving structured settlement funding of over $40 billion. Arcadia has more than 160 experienced settlement professionals across 50 offices in the United States, and in 2017 became the only international structured settlements organization in North America with the introduction of EPS Settlements Group of Canada.
