JAVLN, the company bringing insurance technology into the 21st century for underwriting agencies and insurance brokers, today announces the strategic appointments of Rosalie Lau as Group Chief Financial Officer and Peter Waring as Group Chief Technology Officer. The key hires come off the heels of a successful year for JAVLN, marked by significant growth and expansion in the Australian insurance market.
Coming in as Group Chief Financial Officer, Lau understands the impact that technology needs to have on the sector, having had significant experience across the Australian insurance market. She will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of JAVLN’s financial operations, including establishing scalable systems to support the business’ growth.
Rosalie Lau, CFO of JAVLN said: “With my extensive background in both the technology and insurance intermediary sectors, I was drawn to the tremendous opportunities JAVLN has to offer insurance brokers and underwriting agencies. Seeing how technology can increase efficiency, improve customer service and drive compliance in a landscape that is becoming ever more complex — that’s a critical industry challenge that JAVLN is addressing. It’s my pleasure to join the team at this pivotal time to further support in achieving that mission.”
Taking lead on the technology side of the business is new Group Chief Technology Officer, Peter Waring. He will play a key role in leading the teams across the product portfolio: JAVLN, OfficeTech and Underwriter Central, as well as shaping and executing the company’s technology strategy. Waring’s career spans over 26 years within the technology industry, having previously worked for large international Fortune 500 companies, as well as tech companies at the startup and scaleup stage.
Peter Waring, Group CTO of JAVLN said: “JAVLN is a high-growth, Australasian tech success story with a clear value proposition that is future-proofing the insurance industry. I look forward to using the experience I’ve gained with its next stage of growth, building on the incredible success that’s already been achieved by the team.”
Commenting on the new appointments, Dale Smith, CEO of JAVLN, said: “It’s an honour to welcome Rosalie and Peter to the JAVLN leadership team as we focus on growing our presence in Australia and beyond. They bring a wealth of experience that will enable us to continue our mission of being a technology enabler for insurance brokers, helping them become more productive, ensure compliance and make informed decisions.”
Most recently, leading Australian broker group BJS Insurance Group (BJS) partnered with JAVLN to make its business operations more efficient and drive the very best service for its clients. JAVLN also acquired last year Technosoft Solutions’s document management and workflow software OfficeTech and Steadfast’s underwriting policy management platform.
JAVLN’s technology now underpins the operations of a growing number of brokerages throughout Australia, and with a local team based in nearly every state, JAVLN customers are able to talk to real people that understand first hand the challenges they face.
