Meyers to Step Down at Crawford & Co.

Archie Meyers, Jr., chairman and CEO of Crawford & Co., announced today that some time ago he informed the board of directors of his intention to step down as chief executive officer of the company at the end of the first quarter of 2001.

“This move is part of a long range plan eventually leading to my full retirement,” Meyers said. At the regularly scheduled board meeting on January 30, 2001 Grover L. Davis, current president and chief operating officer was elected to replace Meyers as chief executive officer effective April 1, 2001. Meyers will continue as chairman of the board.
