“Louise truly understands the challenges of building a tech and data-driven insurance business in one of the most competitive markets in the world,” said CFC CEO Dave Walsh. “She’s also incredibly passionate about pushing boundaries, testing new ideas and curating a purposeful culture. Her experience and her outlook align closely to ours, and we’re excited to bring her on board.”
“CFC is a remarkable business that has the innovation and agility of a tech start-up along with the performance and experience of a seasoned insurance business,” commented O’Shea on her appointment. “They’re executing on an ambitious technology-focused roadmap and I’m eager to share my experience as they continue to challenge the industry and outperform their peers.”
