Novarica, a research and advisory firm located in New York, announced today that Greg Wittenbrook, who was most recently chief architect and manager of IT innovation at Transamerica Life in Dallas, has joined the firm as a principal.

“We’ve worked with Greg for many years as a member of the Novarica Insurance Technology Research Council, and we’re glad to have him on our team,” said Novarica Partner and Managing Director Matthew Josefowicz, referring to the firm’s moderated knowledge-sharing community of more than 300 insurer CIOs and senior IT executives. “His experience in life insurance and retirement products, combined with his expertise in IT architecture and planning, agile development, and managing innovation, will bring unique value to our life insurance and retirement clients.”

Wittenbrook spent a decade at Transamerica as chief architect and manager of IT innovation at Transamerica Life. His most recent project was overseeing the e-business strategy for Transamerica Life & Protection and serving as the chairperson of the Strategic Architecture Committee for all of Transamerica/Aegon USA. His prior consulting experience includes roles at Atos-Origin and IBM Global Services.

Wittenbrook will be joining Novarica partners Matthew Josefowicz and Chad Hersh at the ACORD/LOMA Insurance Systems Forum in Orlando, Fla., this week.

Novarica also announced today that former principal Don Desiderato has left the firm to take a senior technology leadership role at a major financial institution.

“We congratulate Don on his move and look forward to his continued relationship with the firm as an active member of the Research Council,” Josefowicz commented.
