Charles Taylor InsureTech has announced the opening of a new office in Dubai, as the company looks to build on its growth and success across Europe and Latin America.
The new Dubai office has been launched to take advantage of increasing demand for technology-related business transformation programmes in the Dubai insurance market.
Success in the UK resulted in Charles Taylor InsureTech being appointed to provide an international delegated authorities platform for the Lloyd’s of London marketplace, which is at the heart of the market’s digital transformation efforts.
In Latin America, the company has experienced rapid growth which is underpinned by its acquisition of leading regional insurance technology business, Inworx.
The Dubai office will be led by Shahid Safdar as Managing Director for the Middle East and North Africa regions. He joins Charles Taylor InsureTech from Takaful Emarat, where he served as Chief Digital Officer.
Charles Taylor InsureTech’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Jason Sahota, said: “We believe there is a great opportunity for Charles Taylor InsureTech in the Middle East and North Africa. I am delighted to welcome Shahid to my management team. His business change and transformation experience means he will be well-positioned to support and drive change for insurance companies and brokers in the region.
“This is a very exciting time as we continue to take the business forward and help our clients adapt to the challenges they are facing.”
