Manchester InsurTech Uinsure has hired former Sesame Bankhall Group Managing Director Martin Schultheiss as its Chief Commercial Officer, in the wake of numerous senior hires at the organisation.

Experienced financial services figure Schultheiss led Sesame Bankhall Group for two-and-a-half years, and before that was Managing Director of The Unlimited - a South African firm - and Chief Executive of the Africa division of Harcourts International.

He will drive Uinsure's next phase of growth, which it is set to begin after receiving regulatory approval. The tech firm is implementing a range of digital and technology developments to boost its insurance proposition for adviser and key strategic partners.

In the last two months alone, Uinsure has announced the appointment of a new Head of Sales and a new Chief Marketing Officer. At the beginning of 2020 it made three appointments in the form of a new Chief Governance Officer, Head of Digital Optimisation, and a Non-Executive Director.

Simon Taylor, Uinsure CEO, said: “With so many exciting plans for the business, Martin’s experience and skills are just what we need to lead our strategy and operations to help us to deliver our vision. Martin’s extensive leadership experience, passion for delivery and track record of fostering a culture of continuous improvement and innovation will ensure that Uinsure leverages its fullest potential for growth. It is a pleasure to welcome Martin to our executive team and board.

“We have been busy this year adding to an unrivalled team of individual expertise and talent, including a number of developers, that collectively will work to create the future of home insurance in the intermediary sector using technology, data optimisation and digital transformation that will deliver great solutions".

Schultheiss himself said: “I’m truly excited to join a leading InsurTech business. Uinsure is a company that has shown outstanding performance in the past and significant growth ambition for the future.

"The most critical point to highlight is that they have done this using technology and by obsessing about good customer outcomes. I have already experienced how innovative, agile and capable it is at delivering first-class customer and Adviser insurance experiences and I’m looking forward to progressing Uinsure’s vision in collaboration with our Key Partners, Advisers and the superbly talented team here at Uinsure.”
