Insurtech Concirrus has announced the appointment of former Aon director Brian MacInnes as its new Chief Analytics Officer.
MacInnes has spent the last 12 years at Aon, most recently focused on building out Portfolio Solutions and analytics capabilities within the broker’s London Market wholesale insurance business.
At Concirrus, he will own the role of analytics ambassador in the market, and drive the analytics strategy for the business, leveraging his experience across major global specialties.
“Brian’s appointment comes at a pivotal point both for the (re)insurance industry and Concirrus,” said Andrew Yeoman, Chief Executive Officer of Concirrus.
“The industry has embarked on a decade long cycle of investment in data and analytics. Therefore, we wanted to ensure we had within our executive team, experts and leaders that can engage with the Chief Underwriting Officers, the Chief Data Officers and Chief Analytics Officers,” Yeoman continued.
“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.
MacInnes also commented: “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.”
“This is what makes joining Concirrus so exciting – we have the opportunity to unleash this industry leading technology, analytics capability and excellence that exists within the business and bridge that gap.”
