Consulting Producer of 'The Antiques Roadshow' Joins Enservio

Enservio Inc, the nation's leading provider of contents inventory creation, valuation services and software, today announced the appointment of Dan Farrell as vice president of Collector Services at EnservioSelect. EnservioSelect delivers the market-leading property contents inventory and valuation services to private clients, adjusters, insurance carriers serving high-net-worth individuals and related business entities. Mr. Farrell is, perhaps, best known as the Consulting Producer of "Antiques Roadshow," a signature program for PBS.

As vice president of Collector Services, Farrell's extensive background offers "myriad opportunities for EnservioSelect's clients to realize precise and accurate appraisals of their most valuable possessions and will instill the highest level of confidence in Enservio's capabilities," said Jon McNeill, CEO of Enservio. "We couldn't be more pleased to have him on board."

In addition to Mr. Farrell, EnservioSelect has a committed, professional staff with superior knowledge of high-end property claims. They have full-time specialists, staff experts and a comprehensive network of consultants with extensive credentials and years of experience in fine arts, antiques, collectibles, interior decoration, oriental rugs, couture clothing and wine collections, including conservation and restoration. "I've known and collaborated with Dan over a number of years and am now thrilled to have someone of his stature in the appraisal community join our team," said Tom Kirkpatrick, president of EnservioSelect.

Mr. Farrell serves as the consulting producer for the PBS television series "Antiques Roadshow." He has worked since 1981, with many stops along the way, to finally bring together WGBH in Boston and PBS to present this popular television show to the American viewing public. In 1990, Mr. Farrell established and served as the managing vice president of the U.S. Office of Antique Collectors' Club Ltd., a specialty publisher and distributor of high-quality books on art, antiques, architecture and fine living. He is also a principal in the fine art publishing company Hudson Hills Press. Farrell holds a BA degree from the University of Notre Dame, an MBA from the University of Chicago and an M.Sc. from the London School of Economics.

Mr. Farrell is expected to contribute significantly to the growth of EnservioSelect by leading the Collector Services team. "Our goals at EnservioSelect are ambitious and will take substantial effort to achieve. I believe the potential for Collector Services is outstanding," said Kirkpatrick.
