Digital Risks Team

We're on a mission

For startups and fast-growth digital innovators, insurance is a chore. Entrepreneurs don't want to waste time sifting through insurance jargon. They've got bigger fish to fry.

But they do need to be protected – and not just any protection either. In such a fast-moving digital world, there are always new risks to look out for, new threats on the horizon. Without the right cover, businesses and dreams can be derailed in an instant.

Our mission is to offer insurance that makes sense for now and for the digital future. That covers the new and evolving risks facing digital innovators every day. But we also want to make life more simple and straightforward. Giving our customers the protection they need, and the the service they deserve.

Leaving them to focus on the big fish.

Our all star team

We're a dynamic bunch. Lean and mean. Sprung from the worlds of insurance, tech, media and finance, we're all innovators at heart, driven to make a change for the better. We're united in our belief that you can transform a seemingly mediocre task into a new and exciting experience. Just add a little bit of passion and some out of the box thinking.

Cameron Shearer

Cameron Shearer

Part man, part machine, part jukebox. A marketer by trade and natural leader, the status quo is Cam's sworn enemy. He loves to break the norm, build amazing experiences and won't stop until he's found a way. 'We've always done it this way' is never an answer.

Ben Rose

Ben Rose

Our original office beard, Ben has started something of a trend and now there are loads of them. We’re now a bona fide beard scale up! But of course, Ben is more than just beard. Where he lacks with a razor, he excels in insurance mastery, staying one step ahead of those pesky risks, tirelessly working to keep our customers safe.

Annabel Mekelenkamp

Annabel Mekelenkamp

Combining her business savvy and wanderlust enthusiasm, Annabel is a source of endless inspiration. She values her time and makes the most of it, from hiking, to learning new languages, or jumping off things you shouldn’t be jumping off (eek). And no matter where she is in the world, she’s always ready to get stuck in, and always in our hearts.

Henry Newby

Henry Newby

Every business needs a bridge builder, and nobody does it better than Henry. With a ton of big brand partnerships experience under his belt, he’s taken to the startup life like a duck to water. Always ready to brighten your day with his dazzling sarcasm, you might be surprised he’s also a (drum roll...) fantastic percussionist.

Craig Morris

Craig Morris

An all-year-round human-Movember, Craig can break walls with his laugh. Our head honcho of tech, he parlays prototypes to production perfection and delivers beautiful solutions that customers can’t resist. A true innovator, he defends the developer experience with his life and is also a bit of a VIP on London’s Vue.js scene.

Pawel Trauth

Pawel Trauth

Like a true software engineer, Pawel wants to make the world a better place, but can’t get the source code. So instead, he’s starting with our website. A self-proclaimed fan of ‘weird’ music, you’ll mostly see him with headphones (not that we judge). And you can always rely on him to satisfy your sugar cravings – he always brings cake.

Jean-Luc Crowther

Jean-Luc Crowther

The perfect hybrid of insurance aristocracy and tech wizardry, Jean-Luc was made for a career in insurtech. Our resident blockchain enthusiast, he loves swotting up on the latest innovations. But catch him outside the office and he's an eco-warrior and avid cyclist!

Ben Sheedy

Ben Sheedy

The ultimate visual thinker, Ben is equally adept at arranging designs on a page, as fitting leftovers into containers (his specialist skill). Coming from the land down under, he takes every chance he can get to jet off to Europe. And if he’s not exploring a new city, he’s off discovering new parts of London, or strumming on his guitar.

Anastasia Filatova

Anastasia Filatova

A whirlwind of positive energy, Anastasia has a knack for the aesthetic, whether that’s producing our latest motion picture, or snapping our good sides for social media. Never one to miss an Instagram opportunity, this girl has got the image thing covered. And with hobbies including crafts and interior design, her creativity knows no bounds.

Charles Richard

Charles Richard

With his French accent and English humour, Charles is the king of Adwords, who loves seeing those leads roll in. His talent for picking winners doesn’t end there though, as he was quite the melon connoisseur in his youth. He’s also partial to a spot of kickboxing, perhaps followed by some raw meat – so he’s a true Frenchman after all.

Georgina Grayston

Georgina Grayston

Our resident numbers wizard and a pure bubble of joy, Gina makes finance look easy. An incredibly slow eater and amazingly fast shopper, she’s as meticulous about planning her social life as she is about spreadsheets. She loves to learn and claims to know everything about everyone at Digital Risks. But don’t worry, she can keep a secret.

Josh Day

Josh Day

Keeping customers satisfied is a piece of cake for Josh. A true English gent, he lights up our phone lines with his service prowess and all-round good nature. Never phased, he won’t just solve your problem in super quick time, he’ll brighten your day while he’s at it. But whatever you do, don’t ask him to share his Skittles.

Baha Debashi

Baha Debashi

Unsurpassed at uniting the latest tech and amazing UI, no challenge is too big for Baha. A self-proclaimed champion of fridge-emptying, his other great passions are football and riding motorbikes. But Baha’s a softie really, who’s just as happy watching cartoons… though he claims only with his son (we believe him!)

James Brennan

James Brennan

Being a LinkedIn star doesn’t come easy, unless you’re this guy. A natural charmer, James will win you over in a flash, on the phone or in front of the camera. He gets a buzz from making connections, loves working with innovators, and just for fun, he’ll smash some iron and run half marathons – followed by a well-earned pint of course.

Daniel Harding

Daniel Harding

A master of persuasion, Dan is always ready for the next challenge. He loves discovering innovative new companies and makes it his mission to get them insured. His hair-do is always on point - rain or shine - even when dancing the night away at one of his favourite music festivals. But at the end of the day, he’ll give it all up for Michael Buble. Rumour has it, he’s got a one-man fan club going on.

Peter Barrett

Peter Barrett

Bow down to the greatness that is our chairman, Peter. With a whole host of leadership positions and business successes under his belt, we'd be intimidated if he wasn't so lovely. As you'd expect, he's never happier than on a golf course, or in his swanky Barbados pad. Not that we're jealous or anything!

Lucy Viggers

Lucy Viggers

With legendary attention to detail, nothing gets past our Lucy. A whizz with numbers, Lucy makes sure all our sums add up. Never rattled, she's a calm and cool negotiator in any situation. And whatever it is, she’ll fix it by lighting up the room with her smile.

Denis Shafranik

Denis Shafranik

A seasoned investor and entrepreneur, Denis will stop at nothing to see his business interests succeed and isn’t scared of getting his hands dirty when required. But underneath it all, he’s an artistic soul, whose passion for entrepreneurship is matched by a love of crafts, design and contemporary dance.

Hugo Balfour

Hugo Balfour

Fascinated by the rise of tech, Hugo follows market news religiously, usually via the latest podcast in his headphones. A networking superstar, our customers can’t resist his techy charms. And his talents don’t end there, as he’s made a name for himself as the Bernard Matthews of bowling… that’s king of the turkeys (or triple strike) for those not in the know!

Anna King

Anna King

Digital nomad, wordsmith and PR extraordinaire, Anna is our top blogger and media hound. With a superhuman ability to wrap her brain around everything from insurance to cyber security, brain drugs to start-up investment, her blogs never fail to hit the spot. And she knows how to spin a story better than most too.

Nic Muturniuc

Nic Muturniuc

A fintech fanatic, Nic’s at the top of his game, frequently educating underwriters on the latest financial tech. And not only can he be relied upon to get the best cover for his customers, he’s also a human encyclopedia of trivia who puts the fear into quiz masters everywhere. But bring this guy pizza and he’ll soon fuggedaboutit.
