Johannesburg-headquartered Genasys Technologies, which opened its first international office in London in March, has turned to former RSA chief information officer Darren Price (pictured) for strategic advice.
The award-winning executive, who also worked at the likes of GE Capital and Unilever, will serve as strategic advisor to the new UK operation of the cloud-based insurance management systems provider.
“As I move into the next stage of my career undertaking more NED-like (non-executive director) roles, I am truly excited to be joining Genasys as it takes the next steps in the development of its business,” commented Price. “It’s a fantastic team of people who have built, in my view, a fabulous product. I see a massive opportunity for them here in the UK and Europe and am delighted to be part of their journey.”
Genasys, which currently manages gross written premium of more than R12 billion, is behind offerings such as SKi® Platform, SKi® Host, 4Web, and 4Insure.
“We like the way Darren looks at things,” said Genasys chief operating officer André Symes. “He thinks outside the box and is always looking to challenge the status quo – and that’s exactly the qualities we were looking for.
“His insight on how CIOs think as well as his understanding and experience of the UK insurance market will be invaluable as we seek to grow our business here.”
