As an insurtech startup set to launch the world’s first on-demand insurance platform to support the on-demand economy, we decided it would be smart to hire one of the best underwriting professionals in the business.
Today, we’re proud to announce the addition of Michael B.C. Fitzgibbon as Vice President of Insurance Services and Chief Underwriting Officer. Adding Michael to Slice further strengthens our team of insurtech veterans who have left careers in the traditional insurance industry to reimagine and reinvent insurance for the new economy.
The on-demand economy is here and, generally, traditional insurance carriers have not responded. As a result, most workers in the on-demand economy are either uninsured or underinsured with existing insurance options considered too costly or confusing. With Michael on board, Slice will be disrupting the old insurance model by delivering innovative, technology-driven solutions to a vastly underserved market.
Michael joins Slice following a 28-year career in the insurance industry as an underwriter and broker. At Slice, Michael is leading product and policy development, underwriting, actuarial and insurer engagement. Slice is founded on the principle that technology should drive the insurance transaction and insurance should be sold on a frictionless, per use basis. With the addition of Michael, we enhance our existing technology, systems, and distribution expertise, with extensive knowledge ofinsurance product and underwriting.
Michael has held senior leadership positions with global insurance brokerage Marsh, has co-owned and was President of a regional independent insurance agency, and has been an underwriting manager and product manager at CNA. When not engaged in the business of insurance, Michael performs with a roots-rock band and enjoys golf and cycling.
