Insurtech News > Former Lloyd’s executive joins insurtech as executive chair

Former Canopius corporate development head Sally Coryn (pictured) has joined insurtech iX Technology Group Ltd as executive chair.

With over three decades of insurance industry experience spanning strategy, analysis, investor relations, communications, and underwriting, Coryn has been tapped for strategy development at the start-up, whose offerings are blockchain-based.

The new executive chair spent time at the likes of Lloyd’s of London.

“Insurtech is an exciting, fast-growing area which is driving innovation and modernisation across the insurance industry,” commented Coryn. “By increasing trust, transparency, and efficiency, blockchain technology can deliver enhanced customer service and cost-efficient business models.

“I am delighted to join a team with proven entrepreneurial and technology credentials, and I look forward to working with them as we develop our strategy and product range.”

Meanwhile chief executive Ingemar Svensson is confident that iX Technology Group, which was founded just last year in London, will benefit from Coryn’s leadership and extensive insurance experience. 

“This is a significant appointment for our group as we build its presence in the insurtech sector,” said Svensson.
