Montoux Ramping up Life Insurance ‘Pricing Revolution’ - Hires New SVP of Market Development
Insurance technology company Montoux hires Geoffrey Keast as Senior Vice President of Market Development in North America
VANCOUVER, BC, Canada - SaaS product pricing company Montoux is capitalizing on its rapid growth by welcoming a new Senior Vice President of Market Development in North America, Geoffrey Keast.
Mr. Keast will be starting this month, taking over the management of market development functions for the company, which specializes in accelerating the product pricing process for life insurance carriers.
CEO Klaas Stijnen says the move is aimed at accelerating their current growth rate. “We have a great product, a solid foundation of happy customers, and now we’re scaling,” says Stijnen, “it’s a great place to be in, and Geoff is definitely the best person to help.”
Mr. Keast, who built up his reputation as a growth leader for multiple tech companies in the finance space, is excited about the potential he sees in Montoux. “Montoux is aiming to be the industry leader when it comes to product pricing software, and I’m excited to be a part of making that happen.”
Montoux’s Pricing Application provides real-time access to product benefits, pricing, commission structure, reinsurance and competitive analysis all in one, which the company and its customers say cuts the pricing cycle in half.
Both Stijnen and Keast agree that a cultural fit played a large part in the decision for Mr. Keast to join the company. Mr. Stijnen says he was impressed by the other man’s interest in helping the insurance industry evolve. “We talked about the current state of disruption in the industry, and where we both saw things moving,” says Stijnen, “and we were immediately on the same page.”
Mr. Keast agrees, “it’s a traditional industry, and it’s really struggling to come to terms with how it needs to change. We talked about how Montoux provides a real, tangible tool that will help life insurers thrive during a time of uncertainty, and I want to be involved.”
