Today James is at the helm of a successful technology company, an acknowledged expert on the application of technology in the insurance sector, a regular contributor to key industry publications and a sought-after speaker.
Prior to founding Symbility Solutions, James held various senior executive positions with a number of global technology, financial services and insurance leaders, including General Electric.
