InsurTech Joyn Insurance announced the addition of industry veteran Brian Duperreault to its board as an independent director.
Duperreault previously served as executive chairman for AIG’s Board of Directors and as CEO of AIG from 2017 to 2021. Before joining AIG, he had a 30-year career working in senior executive roles at Hamilton Insurance Group, March & McLennan Companies and ACE Limited.
“Brian Duperreault is without question one of the biggest names and most experienced leaders in the entire insurance industry, and we are proud that he will be bringing his expertise to our Board of Directors,” said Joyn CEO Seraina Macia. “Brian has long believed in and supported Joyn’s mission to integrate insurance, data and technology to create a best-in-class insurance experience, and his wealth of expertise will be critical as Joyn continues to grow.”
The naming of Duperreault to Joyn’s board comes after the company announced Jim Hackbarth as its first independent director earlier this month. Hackbarth was most recently president and CEO of Assurex Global.
In January, Joyn announced $17.7 million in Series A funding led by OMERS Ventures with participation from Avanta Ventures, ManchesterStory, Cohen Circle, SiriusPoint, and several private individual investors.
Launched in July 2021, Joyn Insurance integrates insurance, data and technology expertise, providing a “faster, more accurate and more transparent experience that saves time, costs and frustration.”
