Dr Matthew Jones

Matthew Jones is the Chief Product Officer, responsible for ensuring that Fathom’s existing products and services are accessible to clients and meet their requirements. His role also includes the creation and oversight of a compelling product roadmap.

Most of Matthew’s career has been spent as a consumer and user of catastrophe models and hazard data, giving him a great insight into how Fathom’s products are wielded and how they can best serve the needs of our customers. Before joining Fathom, he was Head of Catastrophe Risk Products at Nasdaq and led the development of Nasdaq’s Oasis-based multi-vendor catastrophe risk modeling platform. Prior to this, Matthew founded Cat Risk Intelligence, a UK-based company providing catastrophe risk management consultancy to the re/insurance industry. He also spent 14 years working for the Zurich Insurance Group, most notably as the Global Head of Catastrophe Management, leading the organizational change required to establish a global team with consistent processes. 

At Fathom, Matthew enjoys working closely with an enthusiastic and inspirational team of developers and scientists to create industry-leading products that are relevant, useful and consumable, and help clients do everything from improve their business to supporting disaster response.  

Matthew has a PhD in Oceanography and Remote Sensing from University College London, which he completed whilst being based at the UK’s National Oceanography Centre in Southampton. He is a co-author of ‘Natural Catastrophe Risk Management and Modelling: A Practitioner’s guide’.
