A Look at LIFE in IT

To help increase transparency between Signal and its Members, a series of articles will be published featuring each of our primary service departments. The first of these is the IT group, based in Wilton, Connecticut. 

Several recent changes have taken place in IT at Signal starting with the appointment of Brian Parent, who joined the Managers in January, 2015, and heads up the department. Peter Geyfman was promoted to Systems Architecture Manager, responsible for the overall system and landscape design and technologies. Olga Tovar was promoted to IT Project Manager, responsible for formalizing, coordination, and delivery of projects. 

Tenny Matthew was hired into the group in October 2014 as an additional programmer, joining Angela Anderson and Diana Yepez for application development and support.

Mark Stoddard has responsibilities for the IT infrastructure including Data Center services, Network, Phones, and PCs. Rob Siebert, located in the Dallas Texas office, also supports infrastructure.

IT Signal has a mission to focus on LIFE for sustainable success. Leadership - to be responsible for actions and performance. Integrity - of systems and commitments. Flexibility - to adapt to business needs and change. Efficiency - to prioritize activities of highest value and strengthen partnerships.

IT Signal is available to all Members through the help line at 203-761-6085.


Signal Mutual Indemnity Association Ltd was established in January 1986 to meet the demands of the stevedoring industry for reasonable and stable workers' compensation insurance rates, and quickly became the premier Longshore mutual in the United States.

The Membership of the Association is drawn from a broad range of employers throughout the country in the stevedoring, ship repair, marine construction and offshore industries with reported Longshore payrolls approaching $3.00 billion representing over 230 companies.

The business of the Association, including membership selection, underwriting, safety resources, claims management, regulatory requirements and financial management is performed by the Association's Managers, Charles Taylor (Hamilton). The day to day responsibility for these operations has been delegated to Charles Taylor's affiliate, Signal Administration, with offices in Dallas Texas, Wilton Connecticut, and Long Beach California.
