Previsico has appointed a partnership manager to support the insurtech’s bid to drive business development across the UK and US insurance markets.
Johnny Stubbs (pictured) has taken on the role, after serving as UK head of insurance and business development at Getsafe and, before that, operations manager at insurtech unicorn Zego.
He will work closely with Previsico’s chief executive and operating officers to drive business development across the UK and US insurance markets, with responsibility for building plans to help clients and partners achieve their strategic goals.
Stubbs will also work in parallel with the marketing team to develop co-marketing, sales and client enablement programmes, focused on the insurtech’s live flood forecasting solution.
Commenting on Jonathan Jackson, chief executive officer of Previsico, said: “Johnny brings a wealth of experience from the insurance and technology sectors within the fast-paced start-up environment. He is extremely knowledgeable with the proven skills to develop successful partnerships. He comes at a time of growing demand for our services and will be a real asset to Previsico and our clients. We are delighted to have him on board.”
Stubbs’s appointment marks another step forward in Previsico’s expansion strategy, following Foresight Group’s investment in the insurtech.
In March 2021, Previsico partnered with Zurich and BT in a market-first pilot across 5,000 UK locations to plug a major flood forecasting gap around surface water flooding and significantly reduce the cost of false alarms.
