He has developed plans and built teams to improve the quality and efficiency of how data is used enterprise-wide across varying functions to make critical business decisions.

He will report to newly appointed CEO Heather Wilson.
Wilson commented: “Underwriting profitability and claims excellence are a focus for all carriers. Tom understands this and has demonstrated through his body of work that strategic applications of AI/ML can be game-changing.
“He is the ideal person to guide CLARA’s data science and insurance solutions efforts as we identify new ways to improve claim outcomes and underwriting results for our clients. We deliver ROI to customers within six months of implementation.
“Tom’s insights will be instrumental in enhancing this performance and to the expansion of CLARA’s industry-leading product suite and the differentiation of our platform.”
Warden added: “I am joining CLARA because it’s a great company with a bright future. Built from our exclusive contributory datasets of claims, medical providers, and attorneys, our tools help clients improve claims outcomes and assure that injured workers receive the most effective care possible.
“I have worked in the insurance data science field for more than 35 years and know first-hand how difficult it is to build AI models and deliver their output to those on the front line. Our models enable claims adjusters to handle complex claims more effectively.
“CLARA is an insurtech company that is delivering realised value to its customers every day, and I am thrilled to now be part of a team that will take the company and its customers to new levels of success.”
