COLOGNE, 16 May 2023 - Michael Rodenberg has been appointed Verisk’s director of property claims solutions in Continental Europe, where he is setting up the company’s building claims business throughout Germany. Verisk (Nasdaq: VRSK), a leading global data analytics and technology provider for the insurance industry, has found in Rodenberg a proven industry expert for the optimisation of business, data, and IT processes.
"We are very pleased with the appointment of Michael Rodenberg, an experienced and innovative leader in building damages,” said Olav Skowronnek, managing director of continental Europe for Verisk Claims Solutions. “This is an important step for the growth of our company across all insurance lines. With the acquisition of Actineo and SV Krug in Germany, as well as the InsurTech company Mavera, which operates in Scandinavia, we have expanded our solutions in personal injury and motor property damage in continental Europe. With our entry into the property sector, we are now plugging into established solutions in Verisk's leading data analytics and insurance ecosystem and will be able to make these solutions available to insurance clients in Germany, and then in other countries in continental Europe."
"Smart digital integration of insurers and service providers along the entire claims settlement process - that is my goal in developing solutions for building damage," said Rodenberg. "In doing so, we want to put data at the centre of our activities. We must not forget, though, that automation and artificial intelligence are not an end in themselves, and that benefits and customer satisfaction determine the best approach."
Michael Rodenberg joined Verisk in April 2023 as director of property claims solutions in Continental Europe, where he is responsible for setting up the new building claims solutions unit across Germany. An IT and data expert, Rodenberg brings extensive experience in setting up business units and optimising processes in the automotive and insurance industries. Prior to joining Verisk, Rodenberg was in charge of setting up and developing digital businesses in motor vehicle, building, and most recently, personal injury, claims.
