Ringing Up the Accomplishments

Stuart Tainsky, SVP and CIO, Privilege Underwriters Reciprocals Exchange (PURE)

When Stuart Tainsky, SVP and CIO of Privilege Underwriters Reciprocals Exchange (PURE), was recognized as an Elite 8 honoree in 2011, he had been leading the specialty personal lines carrier's ambitious growth strategy, rolling out two new states per month. He also was spearheading an ongoing effort to improve PURE's data model and BI reporting capabilities.

Tainsky's IT organization remains busy as PURE, which now serves members in 41 states, continues its growth. Already this year, Tainsky automated PURE's Personal Watercraft product for all of its states in May. June saw the firm implement Salesforce.com. In August, PURE introduced Auto Data Pre-Fill, which has considerably reduced manual data entry in the auto quoting process. And most recently, PURE launched Agent Self-Endorsements in a pilot to advance its ease-of-doing-business efforts.

Tainsky describes his primary responsibilities as helping develop new product offerings and expand current coverages to better meet members' needs; enhancing efficiencies through innovative technology solutions; managing and mitigating the organization's enterprise risks; and providing exceptional service to agents and members. "Data," says Tainsky, "continues to drive our industry and we consider using and tweaking views of our data to be an evolutionary process that will continue forever."
