Cowbell, a leading provider of cyber insurance for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), is pleased to announce two additions to its leadership cadre: Matthew Jones as Chief Strategy Officer and Sean Park, Co-Founder and Co-CIO of Anthemis Group as a new member of Cowbell’s board of directors.
“Matthew Jones and Sean Park are both accomplished executives with deep experience shepherding complex insurance operations,” said Jack Kudale, founder and CEO at Cowbell. “As more organizations turn to cyber insurance to protect against increasing risk, their expertise will ensure that Cowbell remains at the forefront of innovation and continues to provide the most accurate insurance coverages to best support our policyholders.”
Previously a managing director at Anthemis, Matthew Jones joins Cowbell with an in-depth knowledge of insurance and investments in risk-related technology. Jones spent the last five years investing in and supporting venture-backed companies and will lead in developing Cowbell’s vision and strategy, overseeing strategic planning and corporate development initiatives. Before joining Anthemis, Jones was at Swiss Re in both London and Zurich.
“Having worked with the Cowbell team for the past year as a board member, I am looking forward to joining the company at such a pivotal time for the cyber insurance industry,” said Jones. “Cowbell is a leading service provider, and I am excited to work with management to deliver services that continue to define the industry’s evolution.”
Sean Park is the co-founder and co-chief investment officer at Anthemis, where he has combined his knowledge of investment and entrepreneurship to become a widely recognized leading independent thinker on the future of financial services. Sean currently serves as a non-executive director on the board of several high-growth companies and has a proven track record of successfully investing in and advising innovative and disruptive startups.
“I am delighted with the strategic potential Cowbell has in the cyber insurance market,” says Park. “I believe Cowbell is revolutionizing cyber insurance using data and am honored to become part of this endeavor. I look forward to working with the Board and the leadership team at Cowbell.”
