Re-Insurance

Dreiling and Stamets join Attune

  • Martha Dreiling
  • Richard Stamets

Two new appointments have been made at data-enabled platform Attune, the company jointly created last year by American International Group, Hamilton Insurance Group and Two Sigma Investments.

Martha Dreiling takes on the role of head of analytics and corporate operations, while Richard Stamets has been appointed head of underwriting strategy.

Attune is a technology-enabled platform to serve the $80 billion US small to medium-sized enterprise commercial insurance market, using data science and advanced technology to meet the risk needs of small businesses.

Ms Dreiling oversees Attune’s analytics, people, and corporate functions, while Mr Stamets is responsible for building Attune’s underwriting strategies and managing Attune’s portfolio of insurance offerings.

James Hobson, CEO of Attune, said: “Great people are the foundation of great companies and I am honoured to welcome Martha and Richard.

“I’ve known Martha for years, from our time together at OnDeck. She’s a talented professional and great leader with the rare ability to think strategically and drive execution across a broad range of functions.”

He added: “Richard’s deep knowledge of underwriting and extensive experience within the insurance industry across a range of products, combined with his established relationships in the market, are precisely what our leadership team requires right now to ensure that Attune’s growth is built on solid, data-driven underwriting.”

Prior to joining Attune, Ms Dreiling served as senior vice-president of operations at OnDeck, the online lender for small businesses. While at OnDeck, she built the company’s functions for collections, credit operations, customer service, quality assurance, and fraud prevention and detection. She was a member of the executive committee and the management team that took OnDeck public in 2014.

Mr Stamets served most recently as vice-president and head of small business at Starr, leading the direct to consumer and broker business. During his almost 30-year career in the insurance industry, he has held positions of increasing technical and leadership responsibility at AIG, CNA, Chubb and Hamilton USA.
