Holzworth to Head Applied Systems’ IVANS

November 2, 2020

Applied Systems has named Reid Holzworth as chief executive officer of IVANS, the insurance industry’s exchange connecting insurers, MGAs, agencies, and the insured. Holzworth will lead the expansion of the IVANS strategy and all business functions to accelerate the digitization of agency-insurer-insured connectivity and analytics solutions for the insurance ecosystem.

Holzworth is a veteran insurtech entrepreneur with deep experience in both broker and insurer distribution environments. He was the founder and CEO of TechCanary, an insurance customer relationship management (CRM) system built on the Salesforce.com platform. TechCanary was acquired by Applied Systems in 2019 and today is a part of Applied’s portfolio under the name Applied Epic for Salesforce.

“IVANS is the superhighway of our industry, connecting more agencies, insurers and MGAs with automated data exchange than any other platform in our industry,” Holzworth said in a statement. “I look forward to working with the talented members of IVANS and our ecosystem partners to create even greater value across the insurance lifecycle.”

“IVANS is in a unique position to create game-changing connectivity and collaboration across the whole ecosystem,” said Taylor Rhodes, CEO of Applied Systems. “Reid’s extensive industry expertise, proven ability to create technology products that agencies and insurers alike value, and commitment to innovation will be instrumental in accelerating the IVANS mission to increase digital connectivity, automation and collaboration among all stakeholders in the insurance lifecycle.”
