iPipeline (Exton, Pa.), a provider of cloud-based software solutions for the life insurance and financial services industry, has named Sean Fallon to the position of VP, SSG Digital Platform and Policy Administration. Fallon comes to iPipeline from CNO Financial Group (Carmel, Ind.), where he served as VP, Front Office Application Development, and CTO. In this new role at iPipeline, he will advance the SSG Digital Platform with an event driven architecture that will enable user configurable messaging, shared product configuration, and the integration of iPipeline and customer systems, according to an iPipeline statement. Fallon’s appointment corresponds to iPipeline’s use of the SSG Digital platform to power its new Policy Administration offering PAS+, the vendor says.
“Next-gen platforms will play a key role in connecting insurers to the products and services their consumers need,” says Larry Berran, CEO, iPipeline. “These platforms need to be more user configurable, low code, and open to a variety of data sets and home-grown platforms. We are recruiting top industry talent to take our SSG Digital Platform, PAS+, and other core products to the next stage.”
Berran lauds Fallon as bringing a track record of success with cross-functional teams and an extensive knowledge of enterprise architecture in the life insurance industry. “In this new role, he will add a new dimension to the platform through innovation and by executing strategy for our PAS+ initiatives in the North American marketplace,” he comments.
More Low-Code, Customer-Configurable Platform
The life insurance industry’s digital workforce requires a level of self-maintenance to accelerate the new pace of business, Fallon opines. “This means we need to deliver a more low code, customer-configurable platform with an open architecture to accommodate different data sets from home-grown systems and non-iPipeline products used across the enterprise,” he says. “The next leap in PAS+ technology will likely leverage artificial intelligence and self-learning predictive systems, so we are already at work exploring this avenue. Business continuity is top of mind in the COVID-19 reality, and we are determined to enable our clients to optimize their digital investments with iPipeline by taking them into the future.”
Prior to Fallon’s role at CNO Financial Group, he held key executive positions at Lincoln Financial (Radnor, Pa.), CUNA Mutual (Madison, Wisc.) and Millennium Partners (New York). He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Management of Information Systems, Finance and Personnel Management, as well as a Master of Science degree in Finance, from the University of Wisconsin.
