GB Appoints New Chief Information Officer

Gallagher Bassett (GB) is delighted to announce the appointment of Nathan Pilgrim to the role of Chief Information Officer, effective 27th August 2018.

The role of Chief Information Officer is a new addition to GB’s Executive Team, and will be instrumental in delivering for our clients in the ever developing area of technology.

Nathan has over 15 years’ experience in senior leadership roles across many industries, including financial services, private education, legal, accounting, engineering and mining.

Nathan’s most recent position was working as the Head of Technology and Operations at Sunsuper, where he was also a key member of the Customer and Technology Leadership Team contributing to the overall vision of the organisation.

Nathan has experience across a number of technology disciplines including service management, infrastructure, data management and business intelligence, as well as cloud and business platforms.

Nathan’s appointment sees GB continue to establish itself as an industry leader in insurance and claims technology. GB was a keynote presenter on evolving claims technologies at the 2018 Insurtech Summit, and received the 2018 ANZIIF Award for Insurance Industry Innovation of the Year.

CEO John McNamara is excited to have Nathan join the GB family.

"The developing area of information and technology is a big focus for GB and our clients in the coming years.

We’re really pleased to have Nathan on board, and look forward to seeing the value that he will add in this space."

Nathan is looking forward to making an impact in the new role.

"Like most industries, insurance is undertaking a digital transformation, integrating AI and machine learning into the claims space to deliver better outcomes for all parties.

Customers are looking for improved services to keep them informed of the status of their claim along with access to other parties to assist them when they need it most.

They are also looking to have access to this information through their channel of choice, and I’m excited to be working with the team at GB, and our customers, as we progress towards achieving these outcomes."

Outside of work, Nathan enjoys spending time with his wife and three children. He also loves to exercise – being a self-confessed F45 addict!
