Dr. Jayanta Guin

Catastrophe modeling firm AIR Worldwide on Monday announced that Dr. Jayanta Guin has been appointed executive vice president.

Guin will continue to direct AIR’s innovative research program as well as assist with strategic management of AIR’s overall business strategy and new initiatives. He will also lead research and model development efforts for emerging risks across the globe, such as excess mortality, and oversee an enhanced analytical framework for a new generation of catastrophe models.

AIR is a member of the Verisk Insurance Solutions group at Verisk Analytics.

“In my new role, I will remain focused on what is most important to our clients—delivering the most scientifically advanced, reliable and stable models in the industry and providing technology that empowers them to own the risk,” said Guin. “We are ahead of the curve with the release of our software platform, Touchstone, and 60 companies are already experiencing the benefits of it, with many more in the queue. We will continue to set ourselves apart by delivering the most robust models combined with a broader suite of data and analytics, such as noncatastrophe losses, into one workflow by leveraging the many data assets from our parent company, Verisk Analytics.”
