Who Is Alliance Evaluation Services
Kirk O’Malley established himself in the claims industry when he joined an Arizona IME company in 1996. He was instrumental in growing that company by over 600% in the next few years and maintained that level of success for over a decade. The previous seven years, as an Insurance Agent, he provided his clients with coverages ranging from Personal Auto, Home and Life Insurance, to Commercial Property, Liability, Life & Health Insurance, as well as Workers’ Compensation.
In 2010, having envisioned a more efficient way to process the handling and coordinating of Independent Medical Evaluations for his clients, he teamed up with business partner, Joel Levinson, whose background and experience as a leader and strategist was well suited to assist in spearheading these ideals and goals to make them a reality.
