UnderwriteMe, a supplier of automated underwriting systems in the UK and Ireland, has appointed Julie Evans as chief operating officer.
She was formerly chief information officer for Aviva’s UK operation and before that, Barclays’ Asia operation. Evans will be responsible for all operational elements of the business including technical, implementation, customer support and product management.
Martin Werth, UnderwriteMe’s chief executive officer, said: “UnderwriteMe has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and we have grown accordingly.
“We now supply technology to many of the UK’s major insurers, as well as to providers in Ireland, Australia and Asia.
“Our unique comparison service, which allows financial advisers, mortgage brokers and insurance specialists to compare terms and buy from one site now supports the majority of major insurers.
“The appointment of Julie to the key chief operating officer position, signifies our move to a major player in the worldwide life insurance market.”
Evans said: “The global vision, culture and ambition of the UnderwriteMe proposition is something I find very impressive and I am excited to join such a highly motivated, talented and innovative team.
“Technical and operational excellence plus a true customer-centric mindset are the cornerstones of the UnderwriteMe ethos and I look forward to working with the team to help the organisation grow in line with its values.”
