Washington, DC, August 30, 2017 -- Witt O’Brien’s Response Management, LLC, a subsidiary of Witt O’Brien’s, LLC, today announced the acquisition of customer accounts served by The Meredith Management Group, Inc. (“MMG”). MMG is a leading provider of emergency response services to the shipping and transportation industries. Witt O’Brien’s will utilize its existing platform to provide planning and emergency response services to MMG’s clients in both brown-water and blue-water markets.  

“Meredith earned its reputation with high-quality customer service," said Mike Gallagher, Witt O’Brien’s Senior Managing Director for Transportation. “CEO and founder, Captain Tom Neumann, developed the Meredith platform during the 1990s and we are delighted that Tom will be assisting us with this transition.”

“This combination is a natural fit. As I retire, I’m confident that our valued clients will be in excellent hands. The Witt O’Brien’s team, their 24-hour Command Center and VesselPro plan management technology are second to none,” said Captain Tom Neumann.

"We congratulate Tom on his success,” said Tim Whipple, Witt O’Brien’s CEO. “We are committed to supporting Meredith’s clients with the highest quality of service and a broader range of solutions.  Meredith is an excellent business that fits well into our growth strategy to consolidate our position in key sectors such as transportation and logistics. We look forward to Witt O’Brien’s continued growth, both organically and through further acquisitions.”
