Chris Guillaume, former Group CEO of OpenGI has joined the board of e2e Total Loss Vehicle Management [e2e], the UK’s largest network of salvage operators, as a Non-Executive Director.
e2e is committed to reducing total loss claim costs and re-engineering processes to further increase insurer revenue generation from vehicle salvage. Leveraging technology, data and artificial intelligence is a key component in the business’ strategy and Chris brings highly relevant and invaluable expertise to the Board.
Chris has over 30 years’ experience in the UK and European software development industry, with a specific focus on the insurance market. After technology focussed roles within GUS PLC and Misys PLC he became CEO of private equity backed general insurance software specialist OpenGI in 2007. Following a management buyout he took the company into Europe, growing the business to more than £60m revenues and became a Non-Executive Director for OpenGI in July 2019.
Commenting on his appointment Chris Guillaume said: “e2e is a bold, dynamic organisation and its proactive approach to innovation is inspiring. The plan to unlock additional commercial potential for insurers within the salvage and recycling process is an exciting opportunity to expertly harness the latest technologies and will see e2e continue to break new ground and deliver market leading performance. We will also be exploring enhanced market intelligence and customer journey initiatives. I understand the dynamics of a membership led network from my time managing OpenGI and I will be drawing on this, together with my insurance industry and commercial experience, to work with the team, realise the business goals and redefine the insurance industry salvage partner.”
Neil Joslin, COO of e2e said: “We mean to be the salvage partner of choice for insurers and raise the performance bar across our market place. In building an executive board that brings together decades of insurance market decision maker and supply chain experience, matched by salvage operator expertise, we are equipped with unique insight to positively disrupt the industry. We are shaping a new style of salvage partnership which can add tangible value across many aspects of an insurer’s business from claims and customer retention to risk and compliance. We are absolutely delighted to have Chris on board and look forward to his insight and guidance as we drive our business strategy forward.”Tweet
