Ancileo, a Singapore-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for the insurance ecosystem, has appointed Soraya Essalhi as its Chief Operating Officer.
Her new role will be to optimise service and technology delivery and the overall customer experience at Ancileo.
A 20-year travel insurance veteran, Soraya was former Head of Transformation and Digital at Allianz Partners, where she led the global onboardings of travel partners within the insurer’s e-commerce digital solutions across all markets and sub-segments.
Prior to assuming the role, Soraya assumed leadership roles for business support and account management to help accelerate the growth of Allianz Partners business on B2B2C and ecommerce platforms.
The appointment comes on the heels of Ancileo securing US$3 million in seed funding from Fermion in July this year.
Olivier Michel, Ancileo Founder and CEO said,
“I am excited to welcome Soraya, as her track record in scaling travel insurance portfolios globally and the customer centricity it requires are a great addition to our team and our mission to be both a reliable technology provider as well as consultant and intelligence partner to insurance players who are keen to grow their business with and through us.”
Soraya Essalhi, the newly appointed executive based in Paris said,
“I was impressed with how Ancileo helps insurers and all its partners tap into flexible and customisable insurtech solutions. It’s a powerful, unique offer, so I’m happy to share the industry knowledge as well as partnership and implementation experience I’ve amassed over the years.”
