Mark Dennis joins CRD InsurTech as Non-Exec Director Of Growth

We are thrilled to welcome Mark Dennis to the CRD InsurTech family as our new Non-Executive Director, focused on strategy & growth. With over three decades of experience in the insurance industry, Mark brings a wealth of knowledge, a track record of delivering transformative change, and an undeniable charisma that leaves a lasting impact on everyone he encounters.

Mark has this to say abut joining with CRD InsurTech: "I am delighted to be helping the CRD team in this next exciting growth phase. CRD's ability to deliver solutions across the industry, from startup to scale-up to established insurance businesses, gives the business a strong position. Coupled with the drive and ambition of the whole CRD team, this is a wonderful business to be involved with"

Mark's journey in the world of insurance began with a focus on business change. During the early stages of his career, he played pivotal roles in spearheading significant transformation programs for global enterprises such as New York Life, CNA, Friends Provident, and Munich Re. His ability to navigate complex challenges and drive innovation earned him recognition as a dynamic force within the industry.

In 2016, Mark co-founded, nurtured, and scaled Munich Re's Digital Partners business from the ground up. Under his visionary leadership, what started as a mere concept evolved into a substantial global operation, employing a talented team of over 100 professionals. Digital Partners emerged as a driving force in the insurtech landscape, successfully launching more than 20 groundbreaking insurtech businesses worldwide and amassing an impressive portfolio of over $500 million in Gross Written Premium (GWP) within the first five years of trading.

The impact extended beyond the realm of insurance products and profits. Mark recognised the importance of employee well-being and championed a flexible working model at Munich Re, which included innovative initiatives such as meeting-free and well-being days, extended breaks, and family-friendly work arrangements. These forward-thinking policies were adopted throughout the organisation, setting a precedent long before the broader industry adopted similar measures in response to the global pandemic.

Mark's commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace was evident through his executive sponsorship of Munich Re UK's inclusion and diversity program. He played a pivotal role in nurturing a culture of acceptance, belonging, and equality within the company, leaving a lasting legacy of positive change.

The passion Mark has for giving back to the community was exemplified by his involvement as the executive sponsor of the Re:Connect Charitable Foundation. His dedication to social responsibility and philanthropy further underscored his belief in the power of business to make a meaningful impact beyond the bottom line.

In welcoming Mark Dennis to our team at Cooper Rose Digital, we are not only gaining an industry luminary with a proven track record of growth and transformation but also a leader whose values align perfectly with our vision for the future in Insurance and Insurance Software. We are excited to embark on this journey with Mark, leveraging his expertise, experience, and charisma to drive our growth and innovation to new heights. Join us in extending a warm welcome to Mark Dennis as he begins this exciting chapter with CRD InsurTech, where we are poised to create a brighter and more dynamic future for the insurance industry.

Our Co-Founder & MD, Daniel Longhi said this abut Mark: "We are all so pleased to have someone of Marks calibre join the team. We strongly believe that our insurtech, vision, and team will be greatly improved with Marks presence. Our USP it to really allow our clients to leverage the flexibility, agility and customisation of our our micro modular architecture, giving them a truly personalised system, which is something Mark has really taken on board. We look forward to this next stage of our growth, as we begin to onboard more clients worldwide."
