London, 18 April 2023 – NTT DATA UK&I, a trusted global innovator in business consulting and IT services, has today announced that it has appointed two new senior hires to its insurance practice, bolstering its existing offering in General Insurance and expanding its offering to the Life, Pensions and Investment management sub-sector.
The new hires build on NTT DATA's already strong capabilities in the insurance sector, which is a critical market for organisation’s growth strategy. The new hires follow the announcement of three appointments to the insurance practice in November 2022 which increased the team’s capabilities at a time when the sector is seeing increased transformational requirements.
Ralph Tucker, who joins as a Client Partner, brings over 25 years of deep industry understanding and expertise in the insurance sector. Tucker will be focused on Life Insurance and Pensions and is looking to harness NTT DATA’s significant global capabilities alongside his experience to bring the best and most innovative results to both existing and future customers.
David Basson joins NTT DATA UK&I as Advisor to the UK General Insurance sub-sector. With cross-sector experience and a proven track record of delivering transformational programmes, Basson brings with him best practices and leading techniques to deliver high impact digital transformation projects for our clients.
This comes at a time when the Practice is focused on delivering the new Sanctions Compliance Service, which is set to launch later this month. This new service has been designed to help practitioners within the London and Global Specialty market address the sanctions regulatory challenge they face. The service will provide our customers with an technology driven solution aligned with SME BPO capability to enable customers to save time and resources through the increasingly difficult challenge of conducting detailed and accurate sanctions checking processes.
David Brooks, Insurance Practice Leader at NTT DATA UK&I commented: “I am delighted that David and Ralph have joined us to reinforce our team. Our insurance practice has continued to grow over the past year and their experience in and out of industry will increase the wealth of knowledge we have to drive our clients’ transformation strategies. Through our strengthened team, we look forward to delivering even more innovative projects within the market.”
