BOSTON, Mass., – Boston-based insurtech company, Corvus, welcomes Charles Hamilton as the new VP, Head of Cargo Underwriting. Hamilton joins Corvus with over seventeen years in the insurance industry. He previously worked in the marine unit at Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance.

"Charles has experience in all types of Marine Cargo and a track record of success with some of the largest insurers in the world," says Corvus CEO Phil Edmundson.

“I am excited to be joining Corvus Insurance,” says Hamilton. “I look forward to expanding our knowledge of combining cargo and Insurtech capabilities to the brokerage community. I am looking forward to helping us become the best in this space.”

Corvus Insurance, a leader in providing technology-enabled commercial insurance, offers Smart Cargo Insurance™ for Food and Life Science companies. Smart Cargo Insurance tools analyze data from temperature sensors that are already used in the shipments of goods that are subject to spoilage. This allows Corvus to “score” the temperature stability for each individual manufacturer/shipper of goods.

This Corvus Cargo Score is used to better inform underwriting, and to provide commercial insurance brokers and buyers with Dynamic Loss Prevention recommendations and business intelligence. These recommendations help brokers reduce the total cost of risk for their clients. In addition, Corvus’ online platform, the CrowBar, provides brokers and policyholders on-demand access to policy information, claims reporting, loss prevention recommendations, and business intelligence.
