Kerford Joins IDP as President

Staff Writer | January 22, 2016

IDP, a Pennsylvania-based developer of software and SaaS services for the Property & Casualty insurance segment, announces the appointment of Dave Kerford as president.

"Our industry is changing rapidly to meet the needs of the modern insurance consumer who is focused on personalized service available literally at the drop of a hat," says Kerford. "IDP's solution set is the perfect alternative to those systems sold by big-box providers concentrating on sales goals instead of developing relationships, and, therefore, providing little in the way of ability to customize an implementation, improving the policyholder experience, or increasing service standards. I'm looking forward to being a part of this exciting time in the industry through IDP."

Kerford has more than 25 years of experience in executive roles in both the P&C and life segments of the insurance industry. Prior to joining IDP, he held positions as president of The Leverage Group, a PMSC company, and president and CEO of AQS Inc., a P&C insurance software firm acquired by Insurity. Additionally, he held executive roles with Cybertek, InsureZone, McCamish Systems, and IBM.

"Our company, our people, and our customers will be significantly stronger with the addition of David Kerford," says Dave Carlino, chairman and CEO of IDP. "His deep industry experience, his disciplined approach, and his commitment to integrity and ethics will strengthen and enhance IDP's long history of innovation in the P&C insurance industry."

IDP has been leveling the insurance playing field for years through the company's component-based, scalable, core administration suite, InsuraSphere. Typically delivered via a private cloud in a managed environment, InsuraSphere provides solutions for policy, billing, and claims, as well as rating, reporting, reinsurance, and portals for agents and insureds, including mobile applications, which support new business growth, streamline processing, and produce operational cost savings. IDP also offers a comprehensive bureau reporting service that integrates with any policy or claim system
