No-code insurance platform provider INSTANDA has announced the appointment of Geoff Keast as its new vice president of sales. Keast brings a wealth of experience to the role, with over a decade of expertise in global financial technology and sales leadership.
In his role as vice president of sales, Keast will oversee the sales operations of INSTANDA in the United States. His career history includes significant positions at Fiserv and ABnote North America. Keast also has considerable experience with Montoux, a cloud-based automation platform for actuaries, where he served in various senior roles, culminating in a four-year tenure as CEO.
For this new function, Keast will report to Derek Hill, co-founder and chief revenue officer for the US at INSTANDA. He holds an MBA from Victoria University of Wellington and an undergraduate degree in political science and sociology from the University of Canterbury. Keast is currently based in Denver.
The hiring of Keast is also seen as a strategic move for INSTANDA, aligning with the company's ongoing efforts to empower insurance carriers and MGAs in creating, developing, and rapidly launching custom insurance products.
“His deep understanding of, and sales experience in the fintech space position him well to address his new mission of helping our clients meet their most paramount digitisation concerns,” said TIm Hardcastle, co-founder and CEO of INSTANDA.
Earlier this year, the firm also welcomed Kevin Gaut as its new chief technology officer.
