He has extensive global and domestic insurance and reinsurance experience managing underwriting, pricing, and regulatory compliance.

Prior to joining Coalition, Tkatch was chief actuary and executive vice president at Berkshire Hathaway GUARD Insurance Companies, where he was responsible for the company’s actuarial, regulatory compliance, and state filings unit. He also served as deputy head of commercial pricing at AIG and was chief pricing actuary for Zurich Latin America in Miami, Florida.

Additionally, Tkatch is a member of the American Academy of Actuaries, a fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society, and a chartered property casualty underwriter.

“We are very excited to welcome Dovid to our team,” said Shawn Ram, head of insurance at Coalition. “Coalition is building a new kind of insurance with technology at its core, and Dovid’s expertise in actuarial science and predictive analytics will help us do that as we expand our data-driven underwriting approach to new lines of insurance.”

The move follows the company’s Series E funding round in September, where it raised $205 million to bring its valuation to more than $3.5 billion.
