Laurent’s 5 Fast Facts:
1. What do you love most about your role at Vertafore?
I love meeting people across the country. There is nothing better than getting to shake hands with our clients and potential clients and get to know how our solutions move their business forward.
2. How did you get into the InsurTech business?
Funny enough, I got into the InsurTech business by accident. I was thinking about my career and ran into the President at the time whom I had known for many years. Long story short, a few weeks later I joined this great company and never looked back.
3. What are you most excited about for the future of InsurTech?
I'm excited about how Insurtech will enable independant business owners to keep servicing clients in the way customers want to be serviced. We are helping small, medium and large businesses thrive in the face of GAFAM, today's tech giants.
4. What’s your idea of the perfect weekend?
I like to walk, travel, garden, cook, and spend time with my family and friends. I also like to take time to think about life and see how I can help.
5. I’m coming to visit you! What are your favorite/must-do things in your city?
I live in a very small town of 5,000 people. There are a lot of great areas to walk, run, and bike. In the summer time, BBQ-ing is very popular. It is a treat to walk around and savour the different scents happening from morning to late in the evening.
