InsurTech firm Uinsure has appointed two new non-executive directors to its board and leadership team.

Dan Wright joins as non-executive chair and Jo Smith joins as non-executive director, having both led businesses and supported SMEs across the technology, financial services and insurance sectors.

The additions to Uinsure’s board come as the business continues to progress with its ongoing mission to simplify insurance using data and technology. The Manchester firm featured in fifth spot on our InsurTech 50 ranking last year.

As it brings on board Smith, the founder of two successful industry tech businesses, and Wright, who has a strong track record in investment across public and private markets, Uinsure is planning significant expansion of its technology and distribution.


“It’s clear there is a fantastic business here with an amazing team that is continually innovating for its distribution partners and consumers at large,” said Smith.

“I have always enjoyed working with distributive technology businesses and Uinsure has certainly demonstrated its ability to reimagine this important sector. 

“I aim to bring relevant and real experience as they continue their journey and accelerate their growth.”

Wright added: “It’s testament to the whole team just how Uinsure has progressed in recent years, by not only consistently delivering strong results but also tackling a very complex marketplace. 

I’m excited to be part of a strong and vibrant board that will support Uinsure’s technology-driven mission and drive the future growth of the company.”

“They bring a lot of experience, as well as industry and tech expertise that will help guide us in our next phase of ambitious growth.”
