LOS ANGELES, August 10, 2009 – Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC (KCC), a leading claims and noticing agent serving companies undergoing Chapter 11 bankruptcy, was named as one of the 2009 Best Places to Work in LA by the Los Angeles Business Journal for the second consecutive year. This countywide survey and awards program identifies, recognizes and honors the best places of employment in Los Angeles County, benefiting the region's economy, its workforce and businesses.

"As KCC expanded its staff over the past year to stay ahead of growing demand for our services, we remained focus on preserving the “work-hard, play-hard” culture upon which the company was founded,” said Jonathan Carson, KCC’s co-founder and managing director. “As we continue to evolve as a company, we maintain our commitment to making KCC a positive and fulfilling place to work with team-building, internal training and fun activities designed to build an even better KCC for tomorrow.”

The 2009 Best Places to Work in LA list is comprised of 67 companies split into three groups: 5 small-sized companies (15-24 employees), 50 medium-sized companies (25-249 employees) and 12 large-sized companies (250 or more employees). Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC is named one of the Best Places to Work in LA in the medium-sized company category.

Participating companies undergo a thorough reporting process where Best Companies Group, a third party provider and professional firm based in Harrisburg, PA, identifies strengths and weaknesses of the workplace according to a detailed employee survey. The report identifies opportunities within a company to build a better workplace and to recognize areas of excellence. The report includes categories such as leadership and planning, corporate culture and communications, work environment, training and development as well as pay and benefits.

In its role as a claims and noticing agent for some of the country’s largest Chapter 11 proceedings, KCC employees provide administrative support and services to streamline the restructuring process for corporate debtors and their professionals. Given the rise in Chapter 11 filings during the current downturn, KCC made substantial investments in infrastructure, operational capacity and personnel to remain at the forefront of the restructuring cycle. KCC clients include Cooper-Standard Holdings, Charter Communications, General Growth Properties, Lear Corporation, Six Flags, Visteon, among many others.
