London, 7th November 2022 – NTT DATA UK&I, a trusted global innovator in business consulting and IT services, has today announced that it has appointed three new senior hires to its insurance practice, bolstering its capabilities in the UK market at a time of increased transformational requirements.
Richard White, Anthony Croydon, and Darren Temple all join NTT DATA UK&I as Vice President for insurance, having worked together previously at DXC and Capgemini. With many decades of collective experience, the three hires bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise on the London Markets and elsewhere. They will work closely with Dave Brooks, Head of Insurance at NTT DATA UK&I, on supporting organisations with their transformation strategies.
White, who started his career as an insurance broker in the London markets, has held various positions throughout his career in the insurance industry, focusing on delivering transformational technology and BPO solutions focussed on most recently on supporting the London Markets digital modernisation journey.
Croydon is a Senior Director with 35 years experience in the London Specialty and Reinsurance Market, gained as a practitioner and supplier of services. He has particular expertise in aiding customers in creating innovative and cost-effective solutions to their challenges.
Temple's experience lies in the customer operations arena within Life & Pensions, Banking, and Insurance, with extensive technical and commercial expertise to deliver efficient, technology-led, cost-effective, compliant operations. More recently, he successfully delivered the back office premium and claims handling services for Lloyds of London and the International Underwriting Association (IUA).
The new hires build on NTT DATA's already strong capabilities in the insurance sector, which is an integral part of NTT DATA's growth strategy, as the organisation continues to guide its clients through the insurance industry's digital transformation. In August, NTT DATA announced that it had produced The Blueprint Two Foundational Playbook for Managing Agents on behalf of the Lloyd's Market Association (LMA) and Lloyd's of London to digitally transform the London Insurance Market. Later this week, it will be announcing the next stage of this process: The Blueprint Two Foundational Playbook for Brokers on behalf of Lloyd's of London.
David Brooks, Head of Insurance at NTT DATA UK&I, commented: "I'm very pleased to welcome Richard, Anthony, and Darren to the NTT DATA family. As trusted individuals, their expertise of the London Markets business is unrivalled. Together, with the existing capabilities NTT DATA has in the insurance sector, we can accelerate our offerings to the market. We will continue to provide customers with guidance and delivery excellence to help them execute transformation projects effectively at a time when this is essential."
