His mission within Finlex will be to develop the InsurTech’s Cyber, D&O and Professional Liability product range in France.

I am very excited to be involved in the development of Finlex France as a Product Manager. The Cyber and D&O markets have been somewhat shaken up in recent years, despite significant, if not growing, demand and needs. In this dynamic context, we aim to support our broker partners and help them to respond effectively to these challenges. This will be done with an innovative service which aims to provide access to quality insurance solutions from specialised companies.” shared Frédéric on his arrival.

With the arrival of Sophie and Frédéric alongside Cyliane, we have brought together the talents needed to achieve our development ambitions in France in 2023. I am delighted that they have chosen to join the adventure and to provide their expertise to Finlex France and our partner brokers of tomorrow.” remarked Emmanuelle Criado.

Pascal Ouvrard, VP Europe at Finlex, added: “The arrival of Sophie and Frédéric completes the skills we need to successfully launch Finlex in France very soon. I look forward to their arrival and welcome them to the Finlex family.
