“After decades of working in many areas of the insurance industry, including insurance distribution and its various channels – both traditional and digital – managing operations for P&C technology companies, as well as leading numerous consulting projects aimed at managing innovation and improving the efficiency of operations, I have managed to build a solid, 360-degree vision of the market,” Costa said.
Furthermore, he said, “Paradigms are changing in products, channels, customer experiences, response times and flexibility. To meet this need, technology should be a catalyst and not the bottleneck that it often is. That is why Duck Creek is a key partner in helping insurance companies in their digital transformation processes and enabling them to exceed the expectations set by their stakeholders. Spain and Portugal are key markets to Duck Creek, and we are committed to success in both. I am proud to be able to make this happen as soon as possible.”
