“We are dedicated to closing the insurability gap and making cyber insurance accessible to small- to medium-sized businesses around the world,” said Trent Cooksley, co-founder and chief operating officer of Cowbell.
“As seasoned underwriters with a wealth of experience across the cyber and technology insurance sector, Claud and Matt will help us deliver on this goal. They are valuable additions to our growing UK and US teams.”
“I have seen first-hand how critical cyber insurance is for SMEs and large global enterprises,” Bilbao said. “I am eager to bring my experience working with companies internationally to support Cowbell’s growing UK team.”
Byrne has more than eight years of underwriting experience in cyber and professional lines at traditional carriers and managing general agents. He also has experience working on traditional property & casualty lines supporting larger programs. Byrne will be based in the San Francisco Bay Area and focus on retail and wholesale relationships throughout the US.
