ERLANGER, Ky., May 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech Decisions magazine, a Summit Business Media publication has partnered with CastleBay Consulting to develop Shop Talk, an insightful best practices book for the property & casualty industry. Written by George Grieve, Shop Talk is a compilation of his articles written for Tech Decisions over the last 5 years.
Currently CEO of CastleBay Consulting, Grieve has been in the insurance technology industry for almost 30 years, 25 of which have been spent specifically working with property/casualty insurers. He has been a contributing columnist for Tech Decisions and PropertyCasualty360.com for over six years. The purpose of Shop Talk is to consolidate Grieve's articles over the past five years and provide a best practices resource to property & casualty professionals.
"I believe the goal of Tech Decisions is to inform and entertain and George Grieve consistently delivers on both counts with his Shop Talk column," said Robert Regis Hyle, editor of Tech Decisions. "The subject matter around technology decisions—particularly core systems replacement—can be dry, but George's style makes it an enjoyable read. I think anyone who has read his columns over the years will enjoy looking back and finding that all of his columns remain relevant to what is happening in the market today."
Grieve added, "Shop Talk is my attempt to give back to the industry that has provided me with a professional home for most of my career and has supported CastleBay for 15 years. The intent of Shop Talk is to inform and educate. I hope our wider audience finds this to be the case. I am thrilled at the book's publication and would like to thank Tech Decisions and our vendor sponsors CSC, Guidewire, Insurity, ISCS, MajescoMastek, Maple Technologies, Millbrook, OneShield and Unirisx for making this possible."
Shop Talk will be distributed with the June issue of Tech Decisions, and will be available in an e-book version on June 15, 2012. To learn more about Shop Talk or to receive a free copy, please contact James Daggett, publisher of Tech Decisions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
