Toronto, Canada. Monday, November 1, 2021
Toronto-based global cyber insurtech BOXX Insurance today announced the appointment of Dominic Steptoe as their Global Chief Product Officer (CPO). Based in Switzerland, Steptoe will lead the development and enhancement of BOXX's products and services globally to support its aggressive growth objectives.
In this role, he will be responsible for setting the company’s product strategy, overseeing product development, user experience, product partnerships and innovation.
“The rapid pace and acceleration of digitization is creating new levels of digital insecurity of epic proportions", commented Steptoe. "This is creating an urgent need to provide enhanced security and protection. Nowhere is this felt more keenly than by small businesses and consumers who have historically been ill-served by insurers. The opportunity to help democratise access to cyber insurance and security through BOXX’s product platform is incredibly exciting.”
Prior to joining BOXX, Steptoe has held a number of senior marketing and product leadership roles in different geographies around the world. Most recently, as Head of Consumer Business and Chief Marketing Officer at Swisscard - a joint venture of Credit Suisse and American Express based in Switzerland - he led the growth of the consumer business and the development of market leading products and services as well as co-brand relationships. Previously at American Express, Steptoe led regional and global product and marketing teams in London, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore, developing AMEX’s consumer and small business product strategy for its network partners around the world.
The appointment follows the recent announcement by BOXX of its global partnership with Zurich Insurance, which Steptoe will manage along with other customer relationships in Europe.
