Jim is a deeply experienced insurance and insurtech leader, and brings over two decades experience leading insurance organizations to the role. Most recently, he helped lead CoverWallet as its President for more than five years, from Series A through its acquisition by Aon in 2020.
Prior to that, Jim spent more than fifteen years in insurance leadership positions, including: CEO and Board Director for Goji, a data-driven home and automobile insurance platform; Executive Director of Massachusetts Office of Business Development; and over a decade as Executive Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary of The Commerce Group, Inc, acquired by MAPFRE S.A. of Spain in 2008.
Jim has been a friend to Boost since the very beginning, and we’re very excited to have him on board in an official capacity. As we continue to scale, Jim’s insight and experience will be invaluable in helping us capitalize on ever-growing opportunities.
For his part, Jim had this to say: “Boost is the category leader in insurtech infrastructure and embedded insurance and the team has already made impressive strides in reinventing the way companies operate in our industry. As a former Boost customer with CoverWallet, I now look forward to helping Alex and the team continue to push the industry forward as a board member.”
Jim joins us at an exciting time - in the last 12 months, we’ve more than doubled our customer base and employee count (and we’re still hiring!). We’ve also experienced exponential premium and revenue growth, and announced several new products (including the world’s first and only crypto insurance for retail wallet holders). And we’re not planning to slow down any time soon.
