INSTANDA appoints Steven Haasz as Partnerships & European Accounts Director

European InsurTech, INSTANDA has appointed of Steven Haasz as its Partnerships and European Accounts Director. The new hire will be responsible for accelerating the company’s European expansion and enhance its offerings. The appointment follows the company’s $19.5m Series A funding round.

Tim Hardcastle, INSTANDA founder and CEO, commented: “We are delighted to bring Steven on board to drive our expansion into Europe. His background and wealth of expertise will bring invaluable insight to INSTANDA and our clients, as we continue to expand our global footprint and work with our partners to transform the industry forever. The Covid-19 pandemic has shone a light on just how imperative it is for the global insurance industry to digitise. As we emerge from this crisis, and consumer demands are changed forever as a result, insurers all around the world must be able to adapt accordingly and have business models in place that enable efficiency, agility and adaptability. Bypassing outdated legacy systems through the use of technology is the only way to achieve this.”

Haasz has three decades of financial services experience and has worked with Equitas, London Market Reform consultancy and at the Corporation of Lloyds. Recently, he was the Global COO for AXA Corporate Solutions in Paris.

The appointment comes after the Series A fundraising round that aimed to support the firm’s international expansion in the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America. INSTANDA, recently, announced the appointment of Greg Murphy formerly a Technology Executive at W. R. Berkley to Executive Vice President, North America, to lead the INSTANDA North American Expansion.

Steven Haasz, INSTANDA Partnerships and European Accounts Director and Chief of Staff, commented, “Being able to bring insurance products to market quickly and seamlessly whilst maintaining operational efficiencies has never been more important, particularly in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet the insurance industry is notoriously bogged down by monolithic legacy systems which stand in the way of achieving speed or agility when delivering the products that consumers really need. INSTANDA provides a tangible solution to this challenge, working with insurers around the world to deliver products to market in a matter of weeks, as opposed to months. I am excited to join such a forward-thinking business and drive forward its global expansion into Europe.”
