Commenting on the appointment, Mr. Kaplan said, “With the advancement of technology quickly becoming a crucial element of construction risk management, many of our most sophisticated contractors have internal leaders tasked to driving tech adoption initiatives.

Rose has played a key role in turning this opportunity into a reality, helping with the recent launch of our Construction Ecosystem, the build out of our Tech Library and our Technology Adoption Maturity Index (TAMI). In her new role, she’ll continue to drive ours and our clients’ tech adoption, provide leadership and direction in the development and implementation of ecosystems, technology solutions, and enhanced customer service initiatives.”
