Insurance analytics provider Verisk has announced the appointment of Maroun Mourad (pictured above) as president of claims solutions upon the retirement of Rich Della Rocca, effective July 1, 2022.
“We have a deep and talented bench of executives at Verisk, and Maroun was selected from a strong group of diverse internal candidates,” said Mark Anquillare, president and chief operating officer of Verisk. “Maroun’s entrepreneurial spirit and customer-centricity will undoubtedly prove valuable in revolutionising the claims function in support of our customers and for the benefit of the industry.”
Mourad joined the company in 2015 as senior vice president of commercial lines. He advanced to president of ISO commercial lines in 2017 and president of global underwriting in 2020. When Verisk established its new Life & Growth Markets division in underwriting, Mourad was selected as its president.
“I couldn’t be more excited to lead our claims organisation into the future, building on a rock-solid foundation across our teams, businesses and geographies,” Mourad said. “The claims function is the ultimate customer-facing unit for any insurer. I look forward to exploring further ways to support our customers. One way we’ll do this is by increasing our focus on holistic solutions across process automation, technology and analytics to support this most important function.”
Della Rocca (pictured below) is retiring after 27 years at Verisk, having served the past two years as president of claims.
“Rich helped to build an integrated and increasingly global claims business with solutions for claims fraud detection, property estimating, auto and casualty solutions – with proprietary data and innovative technologies as the foundation,” Anquillare said. “We are grateful for his many contributions and leadership over the years, and we wish him all the best in this next exciting chapter of his life.”
