Insurity subsidiary Valen Analytics has announced that it has appointed Kristin Marr as president of the company. Former president and CEO Dax Craig, who co-founded Valen in 2004, will remain with the company in an advisory role.
Marr has spent more than six years as Valen’s chief marketing officer. Prior to that, she held a variety of leadership roles in marketing and media with organizations like HomeAdvisor and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. With Valen, Marr was a founding member of the Insurance Careers Movement, an organization that now includes more than 1,000 companies across the world.
“The Valen team has achieved so much as an early mover in insurtech, establishing the advanced and predictive analytics category that a majority of insurers rely on today,” Marr said. “As the company enters its next growth phase, there is significant opportunity to leverage existing relationships and establish new products and integrations that reinforce the value insurers can gain from analytics.”
“With her exceptional knowledge of the space and proven ability to deliver meaningful growth, Kristin is uniquely qualified to oversee Valen’s continued trajectory,” said Chris Giglio, CEO of Insurity. “We believe Valen can be most successful as both a standalone provider of analytics for insurers and as a critical component of Insurity’s solution portfolio.”
