London: 4 May, 2021 – Carbon Underwriting Limited (Carbon), the specialist, independent managing general underwriter (MGU), announces today the appointment of Fergus Cooney as Data Analytics Engineer as it expands further its data analytics capabilities.

Fergus joins Carbon from Railsbank where he played an integral role in delivering large scale end-to-end data projects as well as championing the use of data in support of key financial, product and pricing strategies.

This latest appointment is a further expansion of Carbon’s strong data analytics expertise following the recent hires of Mark Oldroyd as Head of Data Engineering and Alexander Scott as Pricing Analyst.
