Concirrus appoints chief analytics officer

UK-based insurtech Concirrus has named Brian MacInnes to the role of Chief Analytics Officer. MacInnes joins from global broker Aon, where he spent 12 years, most recently focusing on building out Portfolio Solutions and analytics capabilities within the broker’s London Market wholesale insurance business. MacInnes said that “currently there is often a lack of alignment and subsequent barriers in the partnership that is required between technical data and analytics capabilities and the trading environment, to ensure the business-led development and use of analytics. This also limits the opportunity to maximise the impact from innovation and new technology to drive meaningful change at pace. A dynamic and more nuanced approach is required for analytics to be responsive to the reality of demands in the business to deliver value for clients today, whilst simultaneously reflecting the future vision and potential of our industry”

Concirrus CEO Andrew Yeoman said that “we wanted to ensure we had, within our executive team, experts and leaders who can engage with the Chief Underwriting Officers, the Chief Data Officers and Chief Analytics Officers. Brian meets all our criteria and his long and distinguished time with Aon means he brings with him not only a wealth of market expertise but also strong relationships with senior figures across the industry.”
