We have a rich pipeline of new products coming to market this Spring, including the RMS® U.S. HD Inland Flood Model, RMS® North America HD Wildfire Model and our full Cyber Suite including a new version of the RMS® Cyber Accumulation Management System. Adam's expertise will help us to maximize the value of these solutions to our clients."
Earlier in his career, Sandler worked across the insurance sector, with companies as diverse as Genpact (a global professional services firm delivering digital transformation), Ironshore (where he was Group CIO), Riskclick (where he was CEO), Marsh & McLennan and AIG.
Adam Sandler, Head of Underwriting, Cyber and Model Solutions, said: "For over 25 years, whether with industry primaries or brokers, I have pushed for innovation by leveraging information and technology to drive better business decisions. In that time, the speed at which digitization has taken hold has risen dramatically and offers a tremendous opportunity and challenge for the industry. The heritage of RMS in advanced insurance data and analytics puts us at the center of this industry opportunity. I'm excited to help drive that mission at RMS, enabling clients to embrace and exploit our capabilities to drive consistent profitable growth."
