Send Technology Solutions Ltd (London) has announced the appointment of Darryl Catts to its board as a non-executive director, to provide strategic guidance to support the continued growth of the business, with a focus the U.S. In his non-executive role, Catts will sit on the board of directors but will not undertake any of the day-to-day running of the business, nor will he be employed by Send.
Catts spent ten years as the Global CIO at AXIS Insurance (Franklin Lakes, N.J.), two years as the CIO/CTO at US Assure (Jacksonville, Fla.), and previously spent over twelve years at Zurich North America (Schaumburg, Ill.), as a regional CIO for several business units, as well as other key leadership roles. His most recent role is CIO at the pet InsurTech company, Fetch by The Dodo (New York).
Send reports rapid growth since launching in 2017 with an AI-enriched, API-enabled Underwriting Workbench. The company says it has since accelerated its product development activities to create one system of record from submission to bind, through to policy administration, and claims. Catts’ deep expertise in creating and running transformative platforms will be instrumental in steering the team to deliver market leading digital solutions for the global commercial insurance market, according to a Send statement.
“Send has a powerful yet simple vision; to transform commercial insurance processes,” comments Catts. “That ambition, and passion to reimagine a new way of working resonates with me. There is a clear opportunity in the market for companies to work smarter, streamline operations and create a competitive edge, and with the most advanced Underwriting Workbench on the market, Send is clearly in a position to lead the charge. I’m excited to work with the team as it continues to grow.”
“We pride ourselves on our knowledge and expertise in insurance, as well as technology,” says Ben Huckel, co-founder and CEO, Send. “We understand the challenges our customers have day-to-day, as we’ve been there. With his extensive understanding of the insurance lifecycle and innovative approach to transformation, Darryl complements our business perfectly and we’re looking forward to benefiting from his knowledge and guidance as we take our business to the next level.”
