Automated claims technology provider Claimatic has announced the appointment of Tim Christ to the newly created role of vice president of growth. In the new role, Christ will be responsible for Claimatic’s new business development.
Christ has nearly 20 years of industry experience, personally leading the investigation of thousands of insurance claims. He has also been directly involved in many mediations and trials, Claimatic said. Christ has managed claims through multiple catastrophic events, including hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods.
“It is critical for every insurtech company to have customer-facing experts that have an intimate understanding of the challenges that insurance carriers face,” said Larry Cochran, CEO of Claimatic. “We are thrilled to have Tim join the team because he deeply understands our customers, is passionate about continuously improving the policyholder claims experience, and is a thought leader around claims processing.”
“I’ve evaluated several opportunities in the last few years, but none got me as excited as Claimatic,” Christ said. “The opportunity to dramatically speed up the claims process has the potential impact of hundreds of millions in savings, and so I’ve decided it’s time to re-engage in the insurance industry I love. It’s a real pleasure to join the Claimatic leadership team, especially since they are based in my home of San Antonio, and I look forward to the opportunity to reconnect and serve many of my former clients.”
