FRISS, the leading provider of AI-powered fraud and risk analytics for P&C insurers, welcomes Dan Gumpright to their growing team. As the Global VP of Products, Dan will drive the company’s development teams to further strengthen the solutions that deliver a unique combination of out-of-the-box risk and fraud indicators and powerful AI techniques such as predictive models, network analysis, and text mining, as they rise to meet the evolving needs of carriers in today’s digital age.
Global insurance knowledge
Dan spent nearly a decade at BAE Systems where he held the position of Head of Global Insurance Product Management for several years. He was fully responsible for product design, strategy, revenue, margin, and overall product performance. He later helped the team at Truepic develop their Insurance Technology Division. Dan speaks regularly as a thought leader at insurance conferences worldwide including the International Association of Special Investigation Units annual conference in 2018 and 2019. He has written for numerous online publications including the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud and was recently interviewed for a column on insurance fraud in The Times national print newspaper.
“Dan brings a vast, global knowledge of insurance fraud and innovative ways to combat it,” shares FRISS CEO and Co-founder Jeroen Morrenhof. “His magnetic personality allows him to effortlessly connect with industry leaders across technology providers and carriers, thoroughly understanding what’s needed to compete in an increasingly digital age. I’ve known Dan for several years and it’s clear that the customer is his first and only priority. I know he will challenge our teams to ensure FRISS keeps delivering value to our growing customer community and will constantly seek new opportunities on our journey to become the global standard for fraud detection.”
Dan truly understands the demands of creating solutions that work around the world. He will focus on products that provide out-of-the-box solutions across numerous markets while localizing the features needed to maximize effectiveness in specific regions. He’s polished this unique perspective over many years and looks forward to sharing that with his new team.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the FRISS team. I’ve admired their work for years and look forward to having a say in the innovative direction in which they continue to go. Their solutions provide a fully-integrated, hybrid combination of powerful AI and over 600 out-of-the-box risk and fraud indicators, that are used by insurers for real-time risk assessment and fraud detection at underwriting, claims and special investigation units. As insurance carriers continue move towards low-touch, touchless and straight-through processes, the FRISS Score is going to be a key addition to their workflows. With this, FRISS helps tackle the $80 billion-dollar problem that insurance fraud is in the US alone, with untold waste across the globe. It damages a carrier’s bottom line, but more than that it hurts the honest customers and businesses who rely on insurance to live their daily lives. It’s my mission on this team to help carriers break this cycle, and I’m looking forward to having a lot of fun while I’m at it.”
Dan will work with the product teams worldwide, ensuring FRISS Solutions are optimized to meet the ever-evolving needs of insurers in all regions. In addition to being a top-notch product manager, Dan is also a bit of an InsureTech and behavioral psychology nerd. While Dan intends to keep very busy, he never minds having a nice conversation about insurance fraud, behavioral techniques used to prevent fraud, where you’re next heading on vacation or anything else that’s on your mind – so feel free to drop him a note at firstname.lastname@example.org or via LinkedIn.
