Carlsbad, California – (November 10, 2020) AutoClaims Direct (ACD), a leading auto claims technology and services company to the property and casualty industry, announced today the addition of two new team members to the company roster. The newly acquired sales talent includes Michael O’Leary who will fulfill the role of Senior Director of Business Development and Brandon Bryant as Director of Business Development.
2020 presented the insurance industry with its share of challenges. The adjustments, pivots and acceleration companies needed to make to survive were numerous. “Like most companies, we took a hit, but I was confident we would get through this unprecedented year stronger than ever. Now, we’re making the moves that will position us for success and growth in the coming years,” said ACD CEO Ernie Bray.
Combined, O’Leary and Bryant have over 45 years of insurance experience. O’Leary held leadership positions at Nationwide (20 years), Travelers, Innovation Group and Car-Part.com. Bryant served in sales management roles at Safelite AutoGlass and CARFAX. Most recently, they both worked for a national appraisal firm.
“I hired two unique and impressive individuals who truly believe and are grounded in being a team. Their teamwork mentality is a perfect fit for ACD and I expect we’ll achieve goals I only previously dreamed about,” touted Bray.
