Newark, Calif. - August 28, 2013 RMS, the world's leading catastrophe modeling firm, today announced the appointment of Alex Barnett as vice president of developer relations. Barnett and his team will enable RMS clients and third-party developers to effectively build models, data, and applications on and around RMS(one). RMS(one) is the company’s real-time exposure and risk management environment purpose-built for the global insurance, reinsurance and insurance-linked securities industries to manage all of their exposure and risk in one open environment.

"Alex's extensive experience building and growing developer networks for technology companies adds important strategic leadership to the RMS team as we grow our developer community and bring RMS(one) to market next year," said Hemant Shah, chief executive officer and president of RMS. "We're building an enduring ecosystem of risk management capabilities to empower our customers with unprecedented freedom and flexibility to fully manage their risk, and Alex's leadership will be a cornerstone to RMS' growth and success."

Barnett brings more than 15 years of developer leadership experience from enterprise technology companies such as Intuit and Microsoft. Most recently, he served as the group manager of developer relations at Intuit where he was responsible for all aspects of strategy, planning and execution of developer marketing, platform evangelism, technical and business education, and technical support. During his time at Intuit, he led the relaunch and rebranding of the Intuit Partner Platform, and doubling of membership in the company's developer programs.

"I'm very excited to join RMS: a market leader making a bold and growth-driving strategic shift in its business," said Barnett. "By taking the initiative and developing a business-to–business ecosystem around RMS(one), RMS is showing what it means to lead an industry. I look forward to ensuring a world-class experience for our clients and third-party developers looking to join a thriving RMS(one) ecosystem."
