Hamilton creates position to advance data science in underwriting
Hamilton USA, the US insurance division of Bermuda-based Hamilton Insurance Group, has appointed Julianna Muir to the newly created position of SVP, head of strategy and innovation.
Muir was instrumental in the development of Attune, an online small-commercial insurance platform Hamilton developed in collaboration with AIG and Two Sigma. She will report to Hamilton USA CEO Seraina Macia.

"Julianna’s new role aligns her significant skills with our goal of using data science and analytics to transform the underwriting process," Macia says in a statement. "We’ve done this with Attune and I have no doubt we’ll be able to do the same thing with the larger risks represented in the middle market segment.”
Before joining Hamilton USA, Muir worked in the insurance practice at McKinsey and Co. She also has worked at Guy Carpenter.
Another Hamilton unit, Hamilton Re, named Matthew Isaly SVP and head of information systems last month.
