Ex-Willis Re tech chief joins insurtech Supercede

Willis Re’s former chief technology officer has joined  Supercede to spearhead development of its cloud-based digital ecosystem for the global reinsurance market.

Aydin Betez (pictured) headed up Willis Re’s global technology, engineering, dev-ops, delivery, and data strategy, and will be tasked with scaling up Supercede’s already successful reinsurance placement platform built for dealmakers.

He previously worked at business and technology management consultancy firm Capco as a digital executive advisor and has held numerous senior technology and transformation roles across the financial services sector over the last two decades.

Jerad Leigh, co-founder and CEO of Supercede, said: “As a highly respected figure in the global reinsurance sector, Aydin’s appointment represents a momentous milestone in Supercede’s rapid growth and success.

“He brings an unparalleled wealth of experience and a unique understanding of developing global reinsurance broker systems.”

Ben Rose, co-founder and president of Supercede, added: “ Supercede has already proved itself as the most intuitive all-in-one placement platform on the market, and this is just the beginning. These are transformational times for our industry and now, alongside this immensely talented team, I look forward to helping to drive this change.”
