Rodney said in a statement: “Reask’s award-winning approach is leading the way in providing new technologies that quantity risk from the increasing complexity of natural hazards. I have first-hand experience of how Reask provides solutions to the industry’s most challenging climate-related questions, and I am excited to be part of such an innovative, driven, and inspiring team.”

The firm was recently in the news here when it announced what it called a ‘strategic’ partnership with Fathom. That partnership aims to provide insurers, banks, and ESG-focused investors with an unparalleled view of risk data on the combined impact of flood and wind events, including hurricanes, tropical cyclones, and typhoons.

The collaboration will initially enable each firm to re-sell the other’s products and services to new and existing clients, and from 2023 the two companies aim to bring new hazard data maps and catastrophe risk models to market, covering the combined perils of flood and wind.
