SANTA CLARA, Calif. - July 30, 2019 - PRLog -- CLARA analytics ("CLARA"), the leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI) technology in the commercial insurance industry, today announced that Gary Hagmueller has been named chief executive officer as company founder Jayant Lakshmikanthan transitions to the role of chief product officer. This further expansion of the executive team partners a proven leader with deep experience scaling companies in high-growth markets with a product visionary, passionate about reducing claims costs while improving the claimant experience. The addition of Hagmueller comes on the heels of a number of key executive hires as CLARA enters a new stage of growth.

"Throughout my career, I have sought out companies that use innovative technology to fundamentally transform key markets.
