Corvus Insurance Names its First ‘Head of International’ Continuing Insurtech’s Global Expansion Momentum
Oliver Delvos set to lead Corvus’s new office in Frankfurt, Germany
Corvus To Add "Head of International"
BOSTON (January 26, 2022) — Corvus Insurance, the leading provider of smart commercial insurance products powered by AI-driven risk data, today announced that as part of its continued global expansion Oliver Delvos will be joining the organization as its Head of International in Summer 2022.
In this new role, Delvos, who currently leads global cyber underwriting at Zurich Insurance Group, will develop and implement Corvus’s long-term operational and organizational strategy for territories outside of the US, with an initial focus on Continental Europe. As cyber crime continues to erase borders, the addition of Delvos to the Corvus team is a key part of its expansion into the global market. Corvus kicked off 2022 with its acquisition of Tarian Underwriting Limited, a leading cyber underwriting platform that underwrites on behalf of a consortium of Lloyd’s syndicates with an international footprint covering the UK, US, Middle East, Canada, and Australia.
“We’re thrilled to add Oliver to the Corvus leadership team later this year as we continue to expand our global presence,” said Phil Edmundson, Chief Executive Officer at Corvus. “With his vast experience in European and Asian markets — as well as his experience in data and privacy risk — he’s well-positioned to lead Corvus’s international team and develop a winning global strategy.”
At Zurich, Delvos developed the global cyber proposition with cyber risk engineering in over 20 Zurich offices worldwide. Prior to Zurich, he led AIG’s cyber underwriting team in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Delvos holds a German degree in Business Law, a Master of Laws (LLM) from Wellington University in New Zealand, and a Master of Science from the London School of Economics (UK).
Delvos will lead Corvus’s office in Frankfurt, Germany, slated to open later in 2022. There, he will be tasked with building a global team of underwriters and other key personnel while developing risk capital structures for programs to support growth of Corvus’s international portfolio. The new team will have an initial focus on excess cyber placements across Continental Europe, expanding Corvus’s cyber capabilities and technology in order to support policyholders across the globe from cyber threats.
