Boost Appoints Senior Insurance Executive, Emy Donavan, as Chief Underwriting Officer

We are incredibly excited to announce that Emy Donovan has been appointed as Boost’s Chief Underwriting Officer!

Not only is Emy a trailblazer in the insurance industry in her own right, but she is someone who fundamentally believes in what we’re building here at Boost. Emy joins us from Fin Capital, one of Boost’s valued investors, where she was a venture partner leading the insurance segment across funds, working on investment thesis development, deal sourcing, and driving portfolio company operating value. Before Fin, she established an impeccable track record as a senior underwriting executive over the past 20 years, including serving as the Global Head and CUO of Cyber, Tech, and Media at Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (ACGS).

Now, Emy will oversee Boost’s program underwriting, product development, and portfolio management in collaboration with Boost’s insurtech and embedded partners and the development and execution of Boost’s reinsurance and risk capital markets strategy.

“I look forward to helping the team continue to lead in this space and to working with our reinsurance partners to break new ground in modern insurance protection,” Emy said. “Combined with increased flexibility enabled by Boost’s tech platform, which supports both embedded and brokered distribution, we have a unique opportunity to make insurance more accessible and valuable to new customer segments, distributors, and capital providers.”

Our CEO Alex Maffeo expressed his excitement about Emy joining the Boost team: “Emy is a highly accomplished senior insurance executive with a proven record of leading the development and execution of complex P&C programs while consistently delivering profitable underwriting returns. She is passionate about fostering innovation across the industry and challenges the status quo to find solutions where others accept the norm. She shares our excitement for the insurtech movement, and I am thrilled to be working with her as we affect positive changes across the industry for the modern insurance customer.”

We’re thrilled to welcome such a passionate, qualified professional to our team, and we're still hiring!
