Heywood has more than two decades of experience in system architecture, software, and technology services supporting insurance claims.

Before joining GRS, he was founder and partner at 99i LLP, an information technology consultancy where he led a team that developed numerous projects for claim incidents in Africa, Europe, the Middle East and North America.

Heywood has had a strong relationship with GRS for over two decades, and working together on a major oil spill in Nigeria that generated over 80,000 claims and on other large projects, including Hurricane Katrina and the Deepwater Horizon incident.

Based in London, Heywood will collaborate with the firm’s leaders on strategic technology planning and execution, while also guiding the technical design and architecture of new and evolving systems.

“Global Risk Solutions is fortunate to bring on board talented technology leaders such as Chris,” said Arthur “Kip” Radigan, CEO of GRS.

“His expertise and experience significantly strengthen our capabilities and will enable GRS to deliver innovation and top-notch claims solutions to our clients around the world.”
