When David and Dorothy Snyder sold Delta Settlements to Michael Upchurch in 2008, David Snyder stated: "One of the main reasons Dorothy and I selected Michael Upchurch to purchase our company is that we felt he will bring much needed "added value" to you, the [Delta] Producers. ...

Based upon Delta Settlements 2011 Annual Meeting this past week on Amelia Island, Florida, the Snyders' evaluation of Upchurch and the "value added" he brings to Delta and its producers was justified. Upchurch has continued to focus Delta's marketing on injury victims and their attorneys while improving Delta's operating systems and technology.
Delta's producers and administrators were joined at their annual meeting by structured settlement representatives from Allstate, MetLife, Pacific Life, and Prudential, who separately highlighted their companys' financial strength, product innovations and servicing improvements.
Delta's guest speakers also included Patrick Hindert, Managing Director of The Settlement Services Group (TSSG), primary author of "Beyond Structured Settlements" and co-author of "Structured Settlements and Periodic Payment Judgments" (S2P2J).
