Having worked for some of the largest and most diverse technology and IT service providers in the industry, James has managed portfolios of accounts in the City of London with a focus on driving business across a broad range of software and outsourced services. In 2012, this led to a project focussed on managed services aligned to catastrophe modelling with one of the major vendors in that space. James managed a technical team to deliver a proof of concept demonstrating the feasibility for core insurance applications to be managed in an outsourced environment.

More recently, as part of a product development project for Simplitium, James worked closely with a consortium of Insurtech focused businesses to build a catastrophe modelling platform that opens up the market to specialist model providers and broadens the choice of models available to the (re)insurance industry.
