To further develop its data analytics expertise, Carbon Underwriting Limited has appointed Madu Gadzama as data analytics engineer and Edward Saunders as data services associate.
Both Gadzama and Saunders will put their expertise to use in the development of Carbon’s data analytics platform, Graphene.
Gadzama graduated from Durham University this year, with a first-class honours degree in physics. Meanwhile, Saunders was most recently serving as a bordereaux analyst for AXA Health. Saunders had also been an assistant accountant with Creaseys Group and an IT project coordinator with AXA PPP Healthcare.
The hiring of Gadzama and Saunders come right after Carbon’s appointments of Mark Oldroyd as head of data architecture; Fergus Cooney and Navdeep Dhuti as data analytics engineers; and Sophia Johnson as data services associate in recent months.
“Market-leading data analytics is at the core of our business as we continue to expand as a technology-driven MGU and Lloyd’s Syndicate,” commented Carbon CEO Nick Tye. “Our proprietary platform, Graphene, in particular, allows us to provide superior data analysis and management for our coverholders while giving us deep insights into our clients’ businesses.”
“The development and use of systems and tools that leverage data for fast, high quality decision making is vital in the insurance industry today,” commented Gadzama on his appointment. “With an innovative and novel approach to development and analytics, it is a hugely exciting time to be joining Carbon. I am thrilled to be joining the effort to develop the proprietary technology platform Graphene, which is ideally positioned to become a cutting-edge data analytics and intelligence tool.”
“This is a very exciting time to join a young and innovative company and I’m really looking forward to sharing my experiences and insights from the industries I’ve worked in and to bring my fresh perspectives and ideas to Carbon,” added Saunders, who added that he is impressed with Carbon’s Graphene – which he believes is a “game-changer” when it comes to insurance data and analytics.
