“As a digital leader in the US, we’ve found that digital solutions enhance our core distribution channels,” Kerridge said. “They make quoting and managing policies easier than ever before for our partners, brokers, agents and customers. We’re thrilled for Ed to step into this newly created role, and continue to strengthen our key underwriting activities and processes with technology, while maintaining the human touchpoints that matter, so that we can better serve our customers and partners.”
