London, UK, 28 March 2022: James Cowen has joined the real-time Insurtech company, Humn, as Chief Commercial Officer, bringing his six years of prowess in the mobility space, and 10years in finance, to the table.
Humn is a data-driven insurance management system that focuses on changing the foundations of fleet insurance. Using artificial intelligence to create real-time solutions, Humn puts the tools in the hands of their customers to manage the exposure of the fleet on a daily basis.
As Chief Commercial Officer, James Cowen will work closely with CEO, Mark Musson, on the company’s commercial strategy; both in terms of planning, and execution. James will take charge of organising strategic partnerships and company expansion, whilst maintaining a strong‘ across the board’ position in terms of capacity planning and fundraising.
Originally trained in the Finance industry, accountancy at Deloitte and then Investment Banking at Greenhill, James is well versed in understanding the difference between a good and bad business, acquisitions, fundraising and ultimately working with C-level at small and large organisations. Most recently, whilst working with Cargo as VP of Corporate Development & International, James led their partnership with Uber, resulting in a $32m Series A funding round in September 2018.
James Cowen, Chief Commercial Officer of Humn, says; "If Humn could deliver even 20% of what they wanted to, the opportunity would be vast, and that is why I’m so excited to be joining the team at such an interesting time. For the first time in this industry, the relationship between the insurer and the fleet is a partnership - not just an annual transaction”
Humn recently acquired Walsingham Motor Insurance in January 2022, the acquisition will further develop Humn’s four-year-old data-led platform to totally transform the way commercial fleet insurance can be priced and give control back to customers.
