Joshua Motta, Coalition’s Chief Executive Officer and co-founder, said, “We’re thrilled to have Oliver join Coalition’s Board as it’s a testament to his commitment to technological innovation in insurance. The cyber insurance market is always evolving, and having Oliver’s insight and expertise on the industry, global operations, and long-term planning will be invaluable as we all seek to achieve an ambitious goal: to protect all those organizations that are currently unprotected.”

Oliver Bäte, Chief Executive Officer of Allianz SE and new Coalition Board Member, said, “Today, businesses across the world are experiencing new types of risks, and our industry requires new thinking to address them.
