Xchanging’s insurance software business, Xuber, has appointed Chris Baker, formerly senior vice president of Oracle, as managing director.
This follows Xchanging’s acquisition of insurance software businesses, Total Objects and Agencyport Europe.
As the leader of the newly expanded insurance software business, Baker will oversee the integration of the recently acquired businesses with Xuber, with the goal of expanding Xuber’s global presence and offerings in the property & casualty and health insurance markets.
Xuber said the appointment is in line with the significant investment Xchanging continues to make in the planned development of Xuber’s product offerings, as it establishes itself as a major player in the global insurance technology market.
He will report directly to Andrew Binns, executive director, Xchanging Technology Services.
Adrian Morgan, who has been the principal driver behind the creation of Xuber, will continue to be responsible for strategy, product and development in the new business.
Binns said: “Chris is a dynamic leader and has over 30 years of experience in the technology and software sales industry, successfully building and running £200 million+ businesses. He will be supported by a strong team; Adrian Morgan, who is recognised as one of the best strategic design visionaries in the industry and by Phil Race and Andy Lovett who have successfully developed their business, Agencyport Europe, in the last three years.
“I have every confidence that this team will manage the successful integration of Total Objects and Agencyport Europe into our existing business and continue to develop and execute the plan to make Xuber a leader in the global insurance software market.”
Chris Baker, managing director, Xuber, added: “I’m thrilled to join the Xchanging insurance software business at such an exciting time and look forward to the challenges that lie ahead. My initial focus will be to ensure the seamless integration of Xchanging’s latest acquisitions and to create an enlarged technology offering which will solidify Xchanging’s leading position in the global insurance technology market. I look forward to delivering creative and transformational value for Xchanging’s customers.”
