Uinsure targets next phase of growth
Insurtech firm, Uinsure, has today announced the appointment of two new non-executive directors who have joined its board and leadership team.
Dan Wright joins as non-executive chair and Jo Smith joins as non-executive director, having both led businesses and supported SMEs across the technology, financial services, and insurance sectors.
The additions to Uinsure’s board come as the Manchester-based business continues to progress with its ongoing mission to simplify insurance using data and technology.
By bringing on board Jo, the founder of two successful industry tech businesses and award-winning entrepreneur, and Dan, who has a strong track record in investment across public and private markets [the investor community and AIM listed companies], Uinsure is investing in its board at a time when it plans significant expansion of its technology and distribution.
Speaking about her appointment, Jo said: “It’s clear there is a fantastic business here with an amazing team that is continually innovating for its distribution partners and consumers at large.”
“I have always enjoyed working with distributive technology businesses and Uinsure has certainly demonstrated its ability to reimagine this important sector. I aim to bring relevant and real experience as they continue their journey and accelerate their growth.”
Dan added: “It’s testament to the whole team just how Uinsure has progressed in recent years, by not only consistently delivering strong results but also tackling a very complex marketplace.
I’m excited to be part of a strong and vibrant board that will support Uinsure’s technology-driven mission and drive the future growth of the company.”
Simon Taylor, Uinsure CEO, added: “We’re delighted to welcome two visionary leaders. Both Jo and Dan have helped build and guide some of the most renowned financial services businesses across the UK.
“They bring a lot of experience, as well as industry and tech expertise that will help guide us in our next phase of ambitious growth.”
