Aquarium to present Technology Leader of the Year Award

Dec 03, 2018

Insurance technology specialist Aquarium will present one of the awards at the Insurance Post Digital and Insurtech Awards, on Friday 23 November at Banking Hall in the City of London.

Aquarium’s Sales & Marketing Director, Mark Colonnese is renowned in the industry for his insight into the impact of tech in niche GI markets particularly pet and travel, making it fitting he should be among those helping to mark the achievements of the best firms of 2018.

Mark will present Insurance Technology Leader of the Year, sponsored by Aquarium. Now in its sixth year, the awards celebrate those in the sector who are harnessing the power of technology and software to drive new ways of customer engagement in insurance – something both Mark and Aquarium are passionate about.

Thanks to the latest DevOps technology delivery approaches, new products can be brought to market faster than ever, including Aquarium’s work on leveraging the full spectrum of what a connected digital ecosystem can offer today’s tech-savvy insurance buyer and insurer alike.

“It’s an honour to be asked to present an award at what is an extremely prestigious event for the industry,” said Aquarium Director, Mark Colonnese.

“Rather than a back-slapping exercise, the Digital and Insurtech Awards give a vital platform to innovators in the sector, to demonstrate the value of their work to a receptive audience.

Firms who see Insurtech as the catalyst for success are growing but the message needs to be heard.

We have been at the zenith of Insurtech innovation for many years now, and it is appropriate to join in recognising others who share our aims and values,” added Mark.

“We know 96 percent of insurers are planning to collaborate with insurtech in bringing new approaches and services to market,” said Mark.

“With the smartphone now at the epicentre of our digital worlds, new and exciting opportunities are available to those with vision to seize them.

Bringing the sector up to speed on the art of the “now possible” is vital; events like these awards form a key part of that ongoing process,” concluded Colonnese.
