Davies announces senior promotions as it accelerates its investment and rollout plans

28th February 2019

Following its announcement in January 2019 that Alberta Investment Management Corporation (“AIMCo”) has taken a minority stake in Davies, and a period of strong organic and acquisitive growth, Davies today announces that it has made two senior promotions to support its investment and international rollout plans.

Matt Button has been promoted to the newly created role of Chief Corporate Development Officer.  In addition to his existing M&A responsibilities, Matt will increase his focus on group strategy and stakeholder management, as well leading and executing Davies’ plans for the acceleration of its international rollout.  Matt will continue to report to Group CEO, Dan Saulter.

Davies also announced that Iva Ivanova has been promoted to M&A Director, and will continue to report to Matt Button.  Iva will take on new responsibility for sourcing and executing new acquisition opportunities as Davies continues its strategy to add complementary businesses and specialisms to the group, alongside its ambitious organic growth and investment in digital transformation.

Since HGGC’s investment in January 2017, Davies has delivered double-digit annual organic growth and has completed 11 acquisitions.  Its global team now totals 1,750 claims, insurance, risk and customer experience professionals delivering core operations, digital solutions and consulting to more than 450 insurance, highly regulated and global businesses across the UK, Ireland, Bermuda, the US and Canada.

Dan Saulter, Group CEO of Davies said: “We take great pride in developing and investing in talent and leadership at Davies.  These new senior roles for Matt and Iva are thoroughly deserved and I look forward to working closely with them and our wider global team, as we continue to invest in deeper domain expertise and in digital transformation in order to become more valuable for our 450 insurance, highly regulated and global clients.”

Matt Button said: “We have a great opportunity to drive forward our plans for continued growth and investment, particularly in Continental Europe and North America.  We have strong connectivity and dialogue with like-minded businesses across these territories.  I am thrilled to take on this new role in the group and I look forward to continuing to play my part in our exciting Davies story.”
