Novidea bolsters team amid global expansion

Novidea, a global InsurTech and provider of a data-driven, cloud-native insurance platform to brokers, agents, and MGAs, has named Adam Glasby as one of its new programme managers

Glasby, whose career started as a software developer for Reuters Information Systems, brings 20 years of London Market experience. Most recently he worked at Lloyd’s underwriter Beazley, where he was Lloyd’s Part VII Programme Manager. Prior to that he worked as a consultant at Lloyd’s, as a data governance consultant at QBE, and held a variety of technical roles at ACE Group, Allianz, and AON.

Glasby’s hire follows a series of other significant milestones. In June 2021, the company raised $30m in a Series B round. In August 2021, Novidea joined the ACORD Solutions Group to help shape the future of the insurance market. Novidea was also named in FinTech Global’s InsurTech100 list for two consecutive years.

Commenting on the hire, Ben Potts, UK managing director of Novidea, said, “Adam’s hire is part of Novidea’s strategy of scaling up our team and capabilities with experienced insurance industry professionals, with London Market and Lloyd’s experience, to support brokers and MGAs in the market as it accelerates its much-awaited digitalisation.

“We have seen increasing demand for our platform from the London Market, as the need to digitalise was brought into focus during the pandemic. Many firms managed, but at the same time realised that in a new hybrid working world people, including senior management, need to be able to work from anywhere, anytime in a cloud-based environment. Novidea’s platform provides the answer.”
