Inga Beale joins NTT’s advisory board

Former CEO of Lloyd's, Inga Beale has joined NTT Data’s new UK advisory board. As a specialist advisor, Dame Inga will work with the firm's head of insurance, Kim Gray, advising on the challenges facing firms in the London Market as they accelerate their transformation plans.

Commenting on the appointment, CEO at NTT Data UK, Simon Williams said: “I have the greatest admiration for Dame Inga’s achievements and this appointment is a major endorsement of our business. Her unique insights will be invaluable to the future of our business as we work together to capitalise on the commercial opportunities we see across the UK insurance industry.”

Dame Inga Beale added: “It’s an honour to be invited to join this new advisory board as NTT Data is an organisation I have huge respect for. The global nature of their business, and the breadth and depth of their capabilities, means they have massive opportunity to shape the future of the London Market. I want to use my perspective and experience to turn that potential into reality and help NTT Data make the impact I believe they can.”

Dame Inga's appointment follows NTT's announcement earlier this year of a £68m investment in its UK-based operation, creating more than 350 new jobs across London, the Midlands and Scotland.

NTT Data’s insurance business grew 45% in 2018. The new advisory board has been created to support its continued expansion.
