Sean B. Rider, CRO, One Concern

Sean B. Rider, a 14-year veteran and key player in the captive insurance market at WTW, has left to take up the position of chief revenue officer at One Concern. The company provides “resilience-as-a-service solutions” for climate adaptation, extreme weather and natural disasters and raised $45m in June from Japanese insurer SOMPO’s holding company.

One Concern’s solution allows users to model and simulate community resilience and responses to natural disasters. Rider announced the move to a update on his LinkedIn page.

“With the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning, One Concern enables better decision-making to make disasters less dire. I am very happy to be part of a team that adds another letter to ESG: R, for Resilience. We will help institutions understand their climate risk in order to mitigate climate threats and their ripple effects on businesses and communities,” he wrote.

Watch this place. Advocating for ESG+R, especially looking at the resilience aspect, and taking a modern approach to understanding risk is fundamental to everything we need to do as global citizens, society and economy.

Ahmad Wani, CEO and Co-Founder of One Concern, also welcomed the move: “Sean’s established leadership and expertise in the strategic risk finance and alternative risk space will enable us to offer our clients a unparalleled value in the resiliency space. We are seeing an increased demand for resilience solutions given that climate change is here and now. »
