In a statement, Urban Jungle said that Rennie’s addition will help it “scale-up further”, adding that his responsibilities will “centre around further fundraising on the next stage of the company’s growth.”
“The quality of the team at every level and their commitment to developing simple, fair insurance products is what impressed me most about Urban Jungle,” said Rennie. “It is clear that they have recently reached an inflexion point in their growth story and pending regulatory changes in the insurance industry, are likely to provide a significant tailwind. I look forward to helping to drive the next phase of growth.”
For his part, Jimmy Williams, co-founder and chief executive officer of Urban Jungle, said that he was “thrilled to have Alan on board to supercharge our company’s ambitious growth plans, as we embark on our mission to fix the insurance industry and make fairer insurance available to as many people as possible.”
“He brings a wealth of experience advising fast-growing fintech and technology start-ups, which will be a massive asset as we enter our next stage of growth,” said Williams.
