wefox, the Berlin-based insurtech, has appointed Helen Heslop to the Board. Heslop will serve as a Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Audit Committee, with immediate effect.
Julian Teicke, CEO and Founder of wefox said: “We have always had a clear purpose at wefox – to keep people safe. To achieve that we have a team of brilliant people. It’s a pleasure to welcome Helen to that team. Her financial experience will without doubt come into its own as we maintain our focus on sustainable growth and profitability.”
Helen Heslop said: “I love the vision and the ambition at wefox. It’s exciting to join a company that has a clear strategy of how to improve the insurance experience through technology. I am looking forward to playing my part in the ongoing success of the business.”
Heslop, a former internationally experienced finance director, brings more than 20 years of financial services experience to wefox from across banking and insurance sectors, including PWC, GE Capital and Aviva.
