Welcoming Gaut back to SSP, Lathrope said: "I am delighted that Kevin is back at SSP, not only does he bring with him his exceptional technology and development skills, but his understanding of the issues facing insurance businesses is now even greater. His focus on delivering technology solutions that deliver real benefit to clients will be a great asset and his keen understanding of the commercial considerations of insurers will help drive SSP forward.
"Plus by adopting market-leading technologies and forming partnerships with complimentary organisations, Kevin will help SSP maintain its market-leading role in this space."
Gaut added: "I am delighted to be back at SSP and excited about the job ahead. There is a great opportunity in this market to take a more collaborative approach to technology solutions, and providing a more rounded and complete offering to our current and future insurer partners."
