RPC Consulting appoints life insurance specialist to partnership

Published on 26 April 2018

Leading independent insurance consulting and software provider RPC Consulting has appointed life insurance specialist John Rowland to its partnership.

John joined RPC Consulting in 2016 having previously been Head of Capital Modelling for life insurance at Willis Towers Watson and a member of its software management team. With over 25 years in the financial services sector – mostly in the insurance industry – John brings a wealth of experience to the RPC Consulting team.

John currently heads RPC Consulting's life insurance capability, with a specific emphasis on software for life insurers. He will spearhead the adoption of the firm's market-leading capital modelling software product Tyche into the life insurance market.

RPC Consulting Managing Partner Alun Marriott said: "John is a class act, and a true leader in his field, so we are very pleased to welcome him to the partnership team at RPC Consulting. John blends deep software technology knowledge with rich client-side experience and will be a significant asset as we continue to grow.

"Of particular relevance to composite insurers, Tyche’s ability to deliver a capital modelling solution that spans general and life insurance markets on a single platform will be truly transformational for the way insurers run their businesses. John will be at the heart of that revolution, and I'm excited to be working alongside him as we continue that journey."

John's appointment is effective as of 1 May. He is joined by two additional promotions to RPC's broader Partnership, with lawyers Nicola Cain and Carmel Green also being made up.

Carmel specialises in insurance disputes, with a particular focus on professional indemnity and financial lines. Based in Hong Kong, she handles a wide range of complex, high value issues, including defending insureds and acting as coverage and monitoring counsel on behalf of insurers around the world. Nicola is a specialist in media and information rights compliance, regulation, enforcement and disputes, with particular expertise in data privacy issues in the media and technology sectors.
