London: 27 October 2021 – Carbon Underwriting Limited (Carbon), the specialist, independent managing general underwriter (MGU) and Lloyd’s syndicate, is pleased to announce the appointments of Madu Gadzama as Data Analytics Engineer and Edward Saunders as Data Services Associate as it continues to develop its data analytics capabilities.

He had previously been an Assistant Accountant with Creaseys Group and prior to that, he was an IT project coordinator with AXA PPP Healthcare.

These latest hires are further evidence of Carbon’s ambition to develop its fast-growing data analytics expertise following the appointments in recent months of Mark Oldroyd as Head of Data Architecture, Fergus Cooney and Navdeep Dhuti as Data Analytics Engineers, and Sophia Johnson as Data Services Associate.

I am delighted to welcome Madu and Edward to our fast-growing data analytics team and I know that we will benefit enormously from their expertise and insights.”

With an innovative and novel approach to development and analytics, it is a hugely exciting time to be joining Carbon. I am thrilled to be joining the effort to develop the proprietary technology platform Graphene, which is ideally positioned to become a cutting-edge data analytics and intelligence tool.”
