Xchanging, the business process, procurement and technology services provider and integrator, has recruited Tony O'Halloran to the role of Director of Account Development in the UK in a key appointment for its insurance software arm.
Tony joins Xchanging Insurance Software from his previous role as Managing Director at major competitor Duck Creek Technologies (acquired by Accenture), where he was responsible for business development in EMEA. He brings with him over thirty years of experience within financial services, twenty-four of which have been with major software and outsourcing companies.
Based in the UK and with a European remit, his responsibilities will include engaging with Xchanging's existing client base at a strategic level, whilst also identifying and securing new business.
The appointment is the latest development in what has been a period of major expansion and activity within Xchanging Insurance Software. Recently, the business has invested more than £20 million in developing the next generation of insurance software, and building the sales and marketing teams.
Adrian Morgan, Head of Insurance Software at Xchanging, comments, "We are delighted to welcome Tony to Xchanging at an exciting time of huge investment in our software business. Not only does Tony have ample experience in the insurance industry, he also brings with him substantial technological expertise from his time at Duck Creek. His recruitment is a major coup for us.
His appointment will help us to ensure that we retain the confidence of our existing customers whilst rolling out the roadmap for the next generation of our insurance software products. This will also enable us to reach out into new areas of the market."
