Cytora strengthens senior team
Cytora has appointed Karen Green to the company’s advisory board, where she will play a key role in driving Cytora’s growth as part of its mission to digitise commercial insurance risk.
Green was previously CEO of Aspen UK and served on the Aspen Group Executive Committee for 12 years. She is currently a Non-Executive Director at Phoenix Group Holdings Plc, Admiral Insurance Group Plc and Asta Managing Agency Ltd. She is also a Council member of Lloyd’s of London and is Vice President of the Insurance Institute of London.
The hire marks the latest addition to Cytora’s growing advisory board following the recent appointments of Kelly Lyles, former CEO, Client and Country Management at AXA XL, and Thomas Huerlimann, ex-CEO, Global Corporate, at Zurich Insurance.
Green says: “I’ve watched Cytora evolve from a disruptive new market entrant into a leading player in digital risk processing. Pressure to keep pace with shifting customer expectations whilst reducing costs is driving insurers to rethink the way they prioritise and digitise risks. I’m very excited to work with such a talented, entrepreneurial team.”
Richard Hartley, CEO at Cytora, says: “Karen’s breadth of experience in the insurance sector will be invaluable to Cytora and accelerate our mission to digitise risk processing across the commercial insurance industry. This will free up underwriting capacity, eliminate the gap between underwriting strategy and frontline execution and drive profitable growth. We’re delighted to have her as part of the team, supporting us on our journey to transform commercial insurance.”
