Gigaforce Welcomes Former Verisk Claims Exec as Chief Strategy Officer
Focused claims and subrogation experience will help drive product direction and go-to-market strategy going forward.
Sunnyvale, California – October 1, 2021 – Gigaforce, an InsurTech provider of a SaaS-based, blockchain-optimized, claims platform, is pleased to announce the addition of Kevin May as the company’s Chief Strategy Officer.
With more than 30 years of insurance industry experience specific to claims and subrogation, May is accustomed to finding innovative solutions to which improve existing processes. He specializes in creating teams empowered to think outside-the-box as it relates to problem-solving for internal and external customers. At Gigaforce, May will not only help direct new feature and functionality development for the Gigaforce platform, but also solidify the company’s continuing go-to-market strategy and identification of additional applications for the Gigaforce platform beyond subrogation.
“We are moving fast to meet industry needs and are pleased to have been selected as part of the Plug And Play Batch 11,” said Sanjeev Chaudhry, CEO of Gigaforce. “It’s recognition like this that made us realize we had a need for a more focused executive strategy position immediately, and Kevin has a broad perspective on the industry which is already delivering valuable insights.”
Most recently, May served as vice president of product innovation and subrogation for Verisk Claims. Prior to Verisk, he led Amali Solutions Group, LLC, Reclaim Software Solutions, and Acclaim Resource Partners, the latter two dedicated to creating targeted solutions to reduce transactional costs of subrogation payment processing and increasing insurer revenues by providing superior service to their policyholders. May also volunteers extensively, serving six years as an executive board member for the National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP), and serving as a mentor with the Global Insurance Accelerator (GIA) since 2017.
“There is so much potential for improvement in the claims process,” said May. “Blockchain is capable of introducing new levels of transparency and connectivity into subrogation, in particular, but there are many more applications for distributed ledge technology (DLT) in insurance. I’m very impressed with the Gigaforce platform and company culture, and I’m looking forward to seeing the improvements we can make in the industry going forward.”
