RMS, a Newark, Calif.-based global risk modeling and analytics firm, has appointed Adam Sandler as Head of Underwriting, Cyber and Model Solutions. Sandler will be responsible for expanding the RMS business in cyber, data, underwriting and models solutions by bringing additional value to clients through a bundling of existing and new innovative capabilities; particularly those focused on digital risk and underwriting transformation.
Sandler was most recently Senior VP and Business Transformation Officer, QBE North America, responsible for driving significant change across processes, analytics and technology. Sandler will report to Mohsen Rahnama, Chief Risk Modeling Officer and General Manager of Models and Data Solutions, RMS.
“Adam brings fresh thinking to our team, with a clear sense from the client perspective about how we can best adapt our models and data to fulfill industry needs,” comments Rahnama. “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.”
RMS reports that earlier in his career, Sandler worked across the insurance sector, with companies as diverse as professional services firm Genpact, Ironshore (where he was Group CIO), Riskclick (where he was CEO), Marsh & McLennan and AIG.
“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,” comments Sandler. “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.”
