Zego is a global insurtech business providing flexible commercial insurance for businesses and professionals. They needed a commercial CFO with relevant insurance sector experience and knowledge to drive the licencing application process, ensuring the overall insurer-entity is constantly in line with regulatory requirements. This CFO also needed to represent Zego internally and externally, while also redying the business for future fundraising and a significant exit event. Zego hired Christopher Thiersch, a former M&A investment banker and McKinsey Consultant who held numerous finance, strategy and operations roles at Zurich Insurance Company. Christopher was a rare candidate as not only did he have the rich insurance industry experience which Zego needed but also had fundraising experience at AI start up Squirro as well as a strategic and transactional background.
