With case-handling efficiency and lifecycle management now among the top priorities for many insurance companies, ISO has strengthened its business development team with the appointment of industry veteran David Blakemore.
Blakemore brings more than 40 years’ experience in the insurance industry, including senior management and business development roles at Marsh, Aon, Groupama, Axa, and Dominion. In his new role, Blakemore will be responsible for driving continued market adoption of ISO Claims Outcome Advisor (COA), a personal injury claims valuation tool, and ISO’s MoJ A2A Case Management solution, which provides major improvements in case management efficiency for insurers and solicitors.
The appointment comes at an important time in the market. Joe Pendle, managing director at ISO, explains: ‘Sophisticated claims handling systems, which offer advanced analytic capabilities and access to actionable data, have become an important part of the modern insurance market.’
‘With the benefits of tools such as COA now clear for insurers, demand continues to increase and we’re continuing to develop new products and services to feed this appetite,’ adds Pendle. ‘David has decades of industry experience in developing new sales and new business. With his experience and great understanding of client needs, he will be a strong member of our business development team and is well positioned to help drive our UK sales.’
