CFC Appoints Fletcher from Hiscox as Chief Technology Officer

CFC, the London-based managing general agent that specializes in emerging risks, announced the appointment of Jonathan Fletcher as chief technology officer. Fletcher, formerly group CTO at Hiscox, will oversee CFC’s technology and infrastructure strategy and lead the company’s fast-growing development and application support teams.

Fletcher joins CFC with 20 years of experience leading IT, DevOps (software development practices) and digital transformation projects at major global brands including Hiscox (January 2017 – January 2019), Accenture (March 2003 – August 2008), and the London Stock Exchange (2004 – 2008).

As group CTO at Hiscox, Fletcher was responsible for the group’s global application and infrastructure strategy and oversaw multi-billion-pound digital transformation initiatives such as the launch of the Hiscox Cloud Platform. He was also instrumental in redesigning the IT function at Hiscox to adhere to DevOps principles.

“Technology innovation has long been at the heart of CFC’s business and continues to be one of the main drivers of our growth and success,” said CFC CEO David Walsh. “The addition of Jonathan to our leadership team is a testament to the caliber of the work we’ve done so far, and to our commitment to lead the market in digital innovation.”

“Innovation and digital transformation are hot topics in insurance and financial services, but there are few companies who are actually walking the walk,” said Fletcher. “CFC is using technology to transform the way they sell insurance — by transacting business more efficiently and delivering products to market faster. I’m excited to partner with the leadership team and our world-class development team to help drive the next phase of our growth.”
