Dave Snell

Technology Evangelist (ret.)

Dave Snell joined RGA in 1998 after several successive management positions in the actuarial and information technology areas of General American Life Insurance Company (GA). He led the microcomputer revolution at GA and has continued his leadership in technology with several innovations for RGA.

He is co-inventor of the AURA automated underwriting expert system and was instrumental in the development of eWarp, the workbench used by RGA facultative underwriters in several offices.
