Urban Jungle has appointed former PwC’s director Alan Rennie as its new chief financial officer (CFO).
The firm revealed Rennie has in-depth experience from 14 years at global professional services firm PwC in both the London and San Francisco offices, including over five years as a director.
It also said that, whilst director at PwC, Rennie led a team assisting venture capitalists and growth equity providers to invest in the UK FinTech market, focusing on companies like Revolut, Starling, Tide and SmartPension.
Having recently surpassed 50,000 paying customers and doubling their revenue in the last six months, the firm has said Rennie is set to help the team “scale-up”.
It added his responsibilities will centre around further fundraising on the next stage of the company’s growth.
Jimmy, CEO and co-founder of Urban Jungle, said: “I’m thrilled to have Alan on board to supercharge our company’s ambitious growth plans, as we embark on our mission to fix the insurance industry and make fairer insurance available to as many people as possible. He brings a wealth of experience advising fast-growing fintech and technology startups, which will be a massive asset as we enter our next stage of growth.”
