Corvus Insurance Names Madhu Tadikonda as New CEO to Lead Accelerated InsurTech Growth and Global Expansion

Founding CEO Philip Edmundson appointed Corvus’s Executive Chair and Chair of the Board

Boston, MA (August 10, 2022) — Corvus Insurance, the market-leading specialty insurance MGA offering Smart Commercial Insurance® products powered by AI-driven risk data, today named Madhu Tadikonda as its new Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately. Tadikonda will join the Corvus Board of Directors and will report directly to the Board.

What Does a New CEO Mean for Corvus?

The InsurTech’s founding CEO Phil Edmundson will assume the new role of Executive Chair and Chair of the Board of Corvus. In this full-time role, Edmundson will focus his efforts on supporting the growth of the company as it expands its international footprint and doubles down on its unique technology and risk capital capabilities. Since its launch in 2017, Corvus has doubled its premium and revenue every year, more than doubled its headcount since 2020 to 300, and has expanded internationally into both the UK and German markets, with plans for further global expansion in 2023.

“We are entering a new era of InsurTech 2.0, where success is derived from smart risk-taking, combining insurance expertise with advanced data and technology. Corvus, which has scaled rapidly since its founding, is perfectly positioned to accelerate its growth moving forward,” said Tadikonda. “We remain hyper-focused on our most important goal: tackling cyber risk. Our advanced data-driven underwriting and policyholder engagement have generated industry-leading results for our risk capital partners and other stakeholders.”

Tadikonda, who joined Corvus as President one year ago, has spent the past year collaborating with reinsurers, brokers, and policyholders to face and mitigate the rapidly evolving threats and cyber risks to the core digital assets and online operations of today’s businesses. Prior to joining Corvus, he served as Global Chief Underwriting Officer at AIG, and earlier led data science efforts for AIG’s Commercial Insurance. He also co-founded Archipelago, a risk data platform that uses AI to digitize risk for large owners of commercial property.

"I have known Phil and Madhu separately for many years now,” said Matt Harris, Managing Partner of Bain Capital Ventures, and the first investor in Corvus. “Having introduced them five years ago, I could not be more excited at this high-level pairing of complementary talents in this incredible market opportunity."

Last month Corvus announced an expanded strategic partnership with SiriusPoint Ltd. (“SiriusPoint”) (NYSE: SPNT), the global specialty insurer and reinsurer, and R&Q Accredited, the leading program management solution provider. The latest multi-year investment from SiriusPoint and R&Q Accredited adds an additional $100MM to the existing program and will allow Corvus to build upon its Smart Cyber Insurance offerings.

“I’m extremely thrilled with Corvus’s achievements and I am excited to continue that growth trajectory. Madhu’s background, with deep experience in both insurance and cutting-edge data science, is a perfect fit for the next phase of Corvus’s scaling. Since Madhu joined Corvus, he has brought an acute eye and passion for demonstrating value for our risk capital partners, brokers, and policyholders alike,” said Edmundson. “I’m excited for what’s ahead, and I look forward to continuing to support our company’s next phase and working to bring our Safer World mission to more brokers and policyholders.”
