Lockton Re, the reinsurance business of the world’s largest privately held independent insurance broker, is pleased to announce that Chris Parish has joined as Market Innovation Leader based in the London office. Chris will be working with colleagues across the globe reporting to Claude Yoder, Global Head of Analytics at Lockton Re.
“I am delighted to welcome Chris to the team in this new and exciting role. To ensure our clients and partners benefit from the external technological changes that are occurring, the reinsurance industry needs to consolidate its data flows and share data through digital connectivity”, comments Claude Yoder. “Our lack of legacy systems and the flexibility of Lockton Re’s SAGE, our proprietary analytics tool, mean we are in a great position to successfully embrace this change. Chris’ expertise and experience will help ensure that Lockton Re plays a key role in this technology advancement”.
Chris has 25 years of re/insurance experience and was most recently at Nephila Capital – as a Partner and the Portfolio Management & Funds Team Leader in Bermuda, and as a Senior Business Advisor in London. Previously, he spent time at Aon Benfield Securities, Aon Benfield Re and Benfield, working in London, Bermuda, Canada, and the US. His focus on clients, technology, securitization, and fund management gives him a great understanding of recent developments in the reinsurance market and insight into the potential for innovation and technology going forward.
Tim Gardner, Global CEO, Lockton Re concludes, “Lockton Re is in a very strong position with our technology investments and our forward-thinking analytics teams to bring faster and deeper connectivity to clients, reinsurance partners and our colleagues. I look forward to working with Chris, Claude, and the wider team to support their efforts to modernize the markets we trade in.”
