OneShield Software, which provides solutions for P&C insurers and MGAs of all sizes, has announced the appointment of David Deal as Chief Legal Officer (CLO).

Deal is joining the team at OneShield, following his role as CLO and COO for Trōv – a global insurtech startup recently purchased by Travelers Insurance. 

“It’s an exciting time to be joining OneShield, and I look forward to this opportunity,” Deal commented. “I’m a problem solver at heart and take great pride in being a business partner and a legal advisor. As such, I look forward to working closely and collaborating with Cameron and his team.”

His prior experience includes General Counsel for One Inc., Senior Corporate Counsel for Apple Inc., Senior Director/Counsel for Allianz of America, Chief Legal and Compliance Officer for GeoVera Holdings, Inc.

Joining the leadership team

Over the last 20 years, he has operated at nearly every level of the insurance and insurance-technology industries, having been a licensed broker in every state in the USA for admitted and surplus lines, appointed as special counsel by the General Counsel of the largest workers’ compensation carrier in the USA, and managed legal matters across 40 countries.

“David is a true ‘unicorn.’ His combination of deep expertise and experience across the intersection of legal, insurance, and technology matters are incredibly rare and will be a great asset to OneShield, our customers, and our ecosystem partners as we continue to grow,” says OneShield CEO Cameron Parker. “David is a welcome addition to our leadership team, not only for his deep professional expertise but also for his alignment with our company values of kindness, accountability, and growth.”
