Hollard-backed insurtech Kanopi has appointed Rishin Patel to the role of Head of Insurance and Micha Goldfine as Head of Design.

Mr Patel, who relocates to Sydney from London, was formerly Strategy Manager at esure and Engagement Manager at Oliver Wyman. He will lead the development of new insurance products for the Kanopi platform.

Sydney-based Mr Goldfine was most recently Digital product designer at the Australian Institute of Company Directors and Head of Design at Prospecta Software, and spent eight years at SiteMinder in senior design roles. He will lead Kanopi’s design and development work for the platform.

Kanopi Founder and CEO Nigel Fellowes-Freeman says recent natural disasters underscore “just how important innovation is” in the insurance sector.

“Using new and existing data points to ensure companies and individuals have the right level of coverage will be instrumental in an era where ongoing climate change makes unthinkable circumstances more common,” he said.

Founded in 2016, Kanopi says its platform intelligently anticipates consumer needs and its mission to create one common ecosystem that simplifies insurance.

Hollard invested in Melbourne-based Kanopi during a $4 million fund raising last year. The data-driven insurtech connects insurers and digital platforms to best tailor insurance to individual customers.
