Brian MacInnes, former Aon director, takes on role of Chief Analytics Officer
Brian is a well-recognised figure in the insurance industry having 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 an ambitious analytics strategy for the business, leveraging his experience across major global specialties.
Commenting on his new appointment, Brian says: “Currently, there is often a lack of alignment and subsequent barriers in the partnership that is required between technical data and analytics capabilities and the trading environment, to ensure the business-led development and use of analytics. This also limits the opportunity to maximise the impact from innovation and new technology to drive meaningful change at pace.
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.”
Andrew Yeoman, Chief Executive Officer comments: “Brian’s appointment comes at a pivotal point both for the (re)insurance industry and 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. 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.
Brian has the ability to have meaningful conversations with those in the market and become an advocate of the new approach we are witnessing. That new approach being the harnessing of data from the Internet of Things, building out machine learning models, and having those insights leveraged through the cloud into existing infrastructure and new digital products.”
