Duck Creek appoints Asia-Pacific chief

Duck Creek Technologies has appointed Christian Erickson as GM Asia-Pacific, overseeing a new phase of investment in the region.

Chief revenue officer Rohit Bedi says the business has enjoyed rapid growth in the region after launching Duck Creek Reinsurance, Duck Creek Clarity and Duck Creek Payments.

Mr Erickson’s “leadership acumen and customer-first mindset, combined with his deep understanding of the insurance sector, make him ideal to spearhead Duck Creek’s investment in the Asia-Pacific region,” Mr Bedi said.

Sydney-based Mr Erickson has international experience across general insurance, reinsurance and broking. He was most recently GM of growth at Versent and previously held leadership positions at Cognizant and Accenture, plus stints at EY, Aon, ING, Tenix, and Reinsurance Group of America.
