Simone Dossetor, COO at Munich Re in Australia, will take over as CEO at Insurtech Australia in October when current chief Rita Yates departs to pursue new challenges.
In 2017, Ms Yates co-founded Insurtech Australia, which now supports 80 insurtech start-up and scale-up members and 30 corporate partners across the local insurance industry.
“I am incredibly proud of our wonderful Insurtech Australia community. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to serve,” Ms Yates said. “With Simone at the helm, I know Insurtech Australia’s future achievements will be inspirational.”
Ms Dossetor has more than 20 years’ experience in the insurance industry and has served on the Insurtech Australia board since February last year, been a director of the Australian and New Zealand Institute of Insurance and Finance (ANZIIF) for three years, and previously held roles at Calliden, Deloitte and the Trowbridge Group, now part of Finity.
She pledged to “bring my passion for innovation, transformation and diversity to the next phase of growth and development of the insurtech ecosystem in Australia”.
