Our leadership team

True to our values, we believe flat is where it’s at. That said, we also know the value of experience. You can’t merge an industry as old as insurance with tech as innovative as ours without seasoned hands at the wheel. Especially if you’re the first company to do it. So, ready to meet the team that’s going to take us to the top?
