​Welcome to Episode 20 of the Behind the Desk Podcast! Join me as I chat with Chris Wyard, Chief Data Officer at Beazley.

Chris joined Beazley nearly 18 months ago in a key leadership role, leading their data strategy as the business embarks on a major multi-year modernisation agenda. Chris has previously spent 12 years working for Allianz, where he joined as a grad and evolved into becoming their Chief Data Officer.

I've known Chris for a few years now, but it was great to understand how he found his passion in data, going back to the start to understand how he shaped his career over the last 15 years. He shares brilliant insight and advice, especially around the importance of curiosity and finding niches within the industry. He is a great person, and I could have spoken to him for hours about his journey and his views on the insurance sector.

Let’s get behind the desk with Chris.
