Matt Cullen

Matt Cullen is the ABI’s Assistant Director, Head of Strategy, Data & Analytics. As Head of Strategy he provides thought leadership on the long term strategic challenges and opportunities facing the insurance industry, and works with policy and executive colleagues to incorporate this thinking into planning and policy development. Much of his time has been spent building the ABI’s policy agenda and public profile in three key emerging areas: technological change and data, cyber risk and climate change.

As Head of Data & Analytics, Matt leads the team of analysts collecting industry data from ABI members to produce the ABI’s market statistics and insight, and is driving a modernisation programme to ensure that the Data & Analytics function adds maximum value internally and externally.

Matt joined the ABI in September 2010 as Policy Adviser, Flooding, and became Manager, General Insurance in 2013. In these roles, he led the development of Flood Re, building stakeholder support for the model, working on its negotiation, and leading the project team implementing the scheme.

Matt began his career in the UK and US nuclear industries – with roles at the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, the Department for Energy and Climate Change, and the US Department of Energy – after reading Geography and Management at Cambridge University.
