SchemeServe, a cloud-based insurance software provider, has welcomed Sean Neal as its new board director and commercial director, and Simon Cowling (pictured) as a new board director and chief technical officer.
Neal, who has 30 years of industry experience, joined SchemeServe nearly a year ago as a member of its advisory board then took up the chief commercial officer role in June 2020.
Meanwhile, Cowling joined the insurtech two years ago, bringing over 15 years of experience as a software manager overseeing front and back-end development including designing website/system structure, modern customer journeys, and front-end design. He currently leads SchemeServe’s IT developers.
SchemeServe founder and chief executive officer Adam Bishop commended Neal’s industry knowledge and extensive network, as well as Cowling’s UX (user experience) expertise.
“Both Simon and Sean continue to lead the charge on technology solutions that really matter to the market and its customers,” Bishop said.
“Insurance companies of all shapes and sizes have flocked to join the race to digitise, particularly since the pandemic which has undoubtedly acted as a catalyst for change. Insurers and intermediaries know that they need to harness cloud-based technologies to increase efficiencies, drive growth, and deliver a better customer experience. In a hard market, the schemes space, in particular, presents a massive opportunity for companies to develop more niche products to maximise customer value.
“We are the only insurtech with a 20-year heritage specialising in the schemes market. Sean and Simon have both contributed hugely to the success of SchemeServe, so I’m delighted to announce these two additions to the board and excited to see SchemeServe go from strength to strength,” Bishop concluded.
