Oakland, Calif.-based catastrophe modeling firm EQECAT has hired Marian Szefler as senior vice president of software architecture where he will be responsible for the firm’s “overall re-architecture project,” according to a company statement.

“Marian’s 20-plus years of international experience in management of software development will be a tremendous asset to EQECAT,” said Richard Clinton EQECAT president. “He will play a critical role in crafting our strategy as we broaden our product offerings.”

Szefler joins EQECAT from Risk Management Solutions (RMS) where he acted as senior vice president of software development.
