Blockchain startup ChainThat has appointed Kathleen Faries as its Bermuda Advisor.

ChainThat provides enterprise solutions, using blockchain, DLT and smart contracts, that allow insurers, reinsurers, brokers and MGAs to securely collaborate peer-2-peer with increased speed, guaranteed data quality, and greater operational productivity. Its Insurance Blockchain Framework (CT-IBF) supports applications across the value chain covering placement, contract management, facilities, claims administration, accounting and settlement supporting operational and strategic benefits in the insurance ecosystem.

Faries, former Head of Tokio Millennium Re AG (TMR), Bermuda, has over 30 years of experience in the insurance and reinsurance market including property and casualty broking into the US, London and Bermuda markets as well as developing and managing captive insurance companies. She served as Chief Executive Officer of Tokio Solution Management Ltd.

“I am delighted that Kathleen has joined the ChainThat team as our Bermuda Advisor,” said David Edwards, Chief Executive Officer of ChainThat. “Since the Bermuda launch in March, we have seen a significant uptake and interest to participate in the trial by the (re)insurance and wider community, Kathleen brings extensive market experience and is highly respected by her peers and will make a significant contribution to help drive the trial forward and promote wider adoption.”

Faries will be working closely with the ChainThat team as their Bermuda Representative and Advisor to support and further drive the adoption of the Bermuda Platform and wider Bermuda Vision.

“I am keenly interested in seeing the Bermuda market lead the way on a digital marketplace especially given how uniquely positioned we are to execute on this initiative,” Faries said. “I am excited to be a part of exploring how we can apply the technology and expertise that ChainThat offers to future-proof and grow the Bermuda (re)insurance market.”
