Insurance comparison platform Policygenius has announced the appointment of Matthew Mak as head of revenue operations.
Mak has more than 20 years of sales and business operations experience. Prior to joining Policygenius, he served as head of sales and fulfillment insights at Better, a homeownership platform. He has also served as vice president of sales operations at information services firm Wolters Kluwer and was a founding member of the marketing solutions line of business for Opera Solutions, a global analytics provider.
Mak joins Policygenius at a time of rapid growth for the startup. The company recently reached 600 employees and opened a second headquarters in Durham, N.C. Last year, Policygenius announced $100 million in Series D funding and launched an exclusive accelerated underwriting life insurance product in partnership with Brighthouse Financial.
“As our business continues to quickly scale, Matthew’s wealth of experience driving operational impact across industries will make him a tremendous asset to our leadership team,” said Jennifer Fitzgerald, co-founder and CEO of Policygenius.
“I’m delighted at the opportunity to work with Policygenius to educate and empower our consumers,” Mak said. “The company’s mission and ethos is inspiring and an amazing model to build upon.”
