Insurtech attracts broker talent away from SSP Worldwide
Global insurtech Novidea has secured commercial talent from SSP Worldwide.
The firm, which provides a data-driven, cloud-native insurance platform for brokers, agents, and MGAs to support growth across the whole distribution lifecycle, has hired Peter Gregory (pictured) as sales manager.
Gregory joins Novidea as a respected specialist in new business development, marketing, sales process, and account management. His most recent role was director of broking at SSP Worldwide. He had spent 22 years at the firm, where he had also held various roles in sales and marketing. Prior to this he worked at Colonnade Insurance Brokers, and at Hill House Hammond Insurance Brokers.
Ben Potts, UK MD of Novidea, said: “Novidea is scaling up fast to support brokers,
carriers, and MGAs as they look for the best solutions to implement their digitalisation strategies.
“The market is becoming increasingly aware of how Novidea’s technology enables greater efficiency and growth, especially as hybrid working accelerates the need to be able to work from anywhere, anytime in a cloud-based environment.
“Demand is high, which is why we are bringing the best talent on board. With his broad experience in the insurance technology sector, Peter will be a valuable addition to our team by helping to expand our UK broker customer base and drive further implementation of the Novidea platform.”
Gregory said: “Novidea’s solutions are truly next generation, providing a 360-degree view of the business and driving efficiencies across every aspect of the insurance journey. I am very excited and proud to be a part of such a dynamic team at the cutting edge of a new digital era for the insurance market.”
This appointment follows a series of hires at Novidea, including Adam Glasby, formerly of Lloyd’s underwriter Beazley, Paul Richmond, previously at broker Price Forbes, and insurance IT firm DXC, Tom McFarland, formerly of AON and Sequel, Jamie McDonnell, formerly of Marsh and Cytora, and Lesley Townsend, formerly of Miller.
