Ingber joins EPIC from third party administrator York Risk Services Group, where she was most recently a National Account Manager, managing the workers' compensation programs of a diverse group of clients. At EPIC, York will focus on the design, implementation and management of cost-effective workers' compensation programs for EPIC clients throughout the United States.
Lamb is a certified safety professional with extensive knowledge and experience in the Transportation, Construction, Manufacturing and Energy industries.

"EPIC is a highly regarded national broker, with experienced, successful leadership; top professionals in multiple disciplines; a strong capital position; and extensive insurance company relationships," said Birmingham managing principal Crawford McInnis. "All of this allows us to deliver even greater value to our clients. We couldn't be more excited to have Dana and Vic join what we are building in Birmingham and across the country."
Since The Carlyle Group became the EPIC's major investment partner in December 2013, the firm has completed ten strategic acquisitions/purchases, adding nearly 400 employees in 14 new locations across the United States.
