We will be building our team out of our Stockholm office in the coming months, and have plans to recruit insurance industry experts and technical staff to provide our customers with the services they need, immediatly and locally. Fadata has an extensive partner network who we will be working closely with to deliver customers with the best insurance technology solutions.”

John Macdonald, CEO of Fadata added,“We are delighted to have Michael lead our regional business expansion, based in our new Stockholm office. The insurance industry is aggressively adopting leading-edge technology across the region, with increasing demand from insurers to replace legacy systems, invest in agile solutions which support their business objectives, and to capitalize on the potential to use customer analytics extensively in their businesses. Michael’s deep understanding of what the market needs will help our customers benefit from Fadata’s expertise and technology.”

Fadata is one of the few organizations to offer advanced solutions for Life, General, and Health insurance.
