ANNOUNCEMENT

The Board of Directors of CANATICS is pleased to announce that the newest tool in the fight against auto insurance fraud is now fully operational. The Board is also pleased to introduce the leadership team behind CANATICS.

His past roles include: Partner and Business Intelligence Practice Lead with KPMG Canada, and Chief Information Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Chartwell IRM Inc. He is a results-oriented leader with a track record of driving growth and excellence in delivery. Ben Kosic

In early 2015, the leadership team was extended to include: Mario Silvestre, VP, Analytics and Operations Mr. Silvestre has over 20 years’ experience in auto insurance claims management, working for leading insurers such as Cooperators and RSA. He has prior experience and knowledge working with the same data analytics technology being used by CANATICS.
