Former RSA Group Chief Information Officer, Darren Price, has joined Genasys Technologies as a strategic advisor to its newly launched UK operation.

As Group CIO, Darren had global responsibility for RSA’s operating companies across the UK, Ireland, Canada, Scandinavia and the Middle East. He was voted Computing 2017 CIO of the Year for delivering technology and digital transformation and was included within the Global Top 100 CIOs in 2017.

“We like the way Darren looks at things. He thinks outside the box and is always looking to challenge the status quo – and that’s exactly the qualities we were looking for,” says André Symes, Chief Operating Officer at Genasys. “His insight on how CIOs think as well as his understanding and experience of the UK insurance market will be invaluable as we seek to grow our business here.”

Commenting on his new role with Genasys, Darren says: “As I move into the next stage of my career undertaking more NED-like roles, I am truly excited to be joining Genasys as it takes the next steps in the development of its business. It’s a fantastic team of people who have built, in my view, a fabulous product. I see a massive opportunity for them here in the UK and Europe and am delighted to be part of their journey.”

A leading provider of cloud-based insurance management systems in South Africa, Genasys opened its UK business – its first international operation – in March this year.
