Rutledge Claims Management Certified By Women’s Business Enterprise National Council

Rutledge Claims Management, Inc. (RCM), a provider of hazard insurance claims management for the mortgage industry, has been granted its national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council – West, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

“We are proud to receive our WBENC certification, as it symbolizes our strong commitment to being an industry leader in diversity, equity and inclusion,” said RCM Chief Executive Officer Allison Rutledge. “As a WBENC-certified business, I look forward to helping our clients and business partners meet their own DEI goals while accessing our world-class claims management services. I’m also eager to build relationships with other woman-owned businesses and help expand opportunities for future women leaders and entrepreneurs.”

RCM is a nationwide provider of hazard claims management services for mortgage servicers and investors, including dispute resolution, negotiations, loss draft, and other services.

The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council – West is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.

By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.

“As man-made and natural disasters that are typically covered under hazard insurance continue to grow, today’s mortgage lenders and servicers face great uncertainty when it comes to protecting their assets,” Rutledge added. “With our new WBENC certification, our clients are able to leverage our decades of expertise in claims management to meet these challenges and support diversity and equity at the same time.”
