CHALLENGER insurance broker, hubb, has announced the appointment of two additional hires to its growing team.
Established in 2019, hubb is a usage-based insurance broker that prides itself on its transparent approach to commercial insurance, underpinned by a unique technology ecosystem that provides all clients with a 360-view of their insurance policies 24/7.
With extensive experience in the insurance industry, Mark Flynn and Frank Smith have joined hubb as new Business Development Executives, where they will be responsible for increasing the broker’s market share within the fleet and hospitality industries.
Having joined hubb from NFU Mutual, Mark brings his 9-year career in B2B sales to the team. Similarly, Frank joins hubb from Plan Insurance and having enjoyed a 5-year career within the industry, is now looking forward to helping the challenger brand achieve its growth objectives over the coming months.
This appointment news comes just weeks after hubb announced industry veteran, Stuart Middleton, would be joining the business as Chief Insurance Officer following a successful 12-month stint as its Non-Executive Director.
Mark Costello, CEO and co-founder of hubb, said: “The last 12 months have been incredibly exciting for hubb as we have continued to disrupt the industry and show UK SMEs the benefits of usage-based and transparent commercial insurance. I am, therefore, delighted to welcome both Mark and Frank to the team and believe they will play a fundamental role in helping us increase market share and achieve our ambitious growth objectives over the coming months.”
A proud member of Fintech Scotland, hubb operates from offices in both Glasgow and London and is currently engaged with regulators in other markets across Europe.
In December 2021, the challenger broker announced the acquisition of award-winning insurance technology provider, Digital Fineprint [DFP], for an undisclosed sum to significantly enhance its customer-centric approach.
