Quotech, the underwriter-led insurTech that creates practical systems for specialty insurers, brokers, and MGAs, has hired three development personnel to meet burgeoning demand for its custom-built, data-focussed risk underwriting and distribution solutions.
Nick Apostolides joins Quotech as Lead Software Developer. With 20 years’ development experience and two Masters degrees (in computing science and theoretical physics), Nick joins after three and half years at Matillion, where as Java Tech Lead he drove the development of Matillion ETL for Azure Synapse.
Mark Antoine joins Quotech as Product Manager. After beginning his career in accounting, Mark worked on insurance-related software development, where he developed end-to-end policy administration platforms with quote & bind, endorsement, cancellation, and renewal functionality.
Chris Pickford joins Quotech as Quality Assurance Engineer. After a stint as a Claims Fraud Investigator, Chris Pickford acquired high-level qualifications – including through a software engineering apprenticeship – to become a quality assurance professional. Now he brings it all together at Quotech.
Nick Melis, Quotech’s Chief Technology Officer, said: “It’s supposed to be a difficult market for employers, but I am really excited that our search has delivered individuals of such high calibre. Their mix of experience matches our needs exactly, as new and existing Quotech clients queue up for our very popular, custom-built speciality insurance market solutions. I look forward to getting properly stuck in with all of them.”
Quotech Chief Executive and former Lloyd’s underwriter Guillaume Bonnissent said: “Today our small team has grown in response to increasing demand for Quotech’s intuitive platforms. Our customers – brokers like Howden, MGAs like Samphire, and carriers like Convex – can’t get enough of our solutions. That’s because every custom Quotech platform is conceived and built by people with hands-on experience at the front end of the London insurance market, as well as high-end development skills. That means Quotech solves real problems and introduces
valuable efficiencies. With Nick, Mark, and Chris on board, Quotech is set to soar.”
