Insurtech Insights, the world’s largest community of insurance executives, entrepreneurs and investors, announces the appointment of Megan Kuczynski to President of its USA insurtech conference and the opening of a local office in Stamford, Connecticut, to work more closely with the insurance industry and build the largest USA insurtech conference

Most recently, Kuczynski served as the President of InsureTech Connect. She brings 20 years of experience in the global convention and trade show business, including senior leadership positions at Reed Exhibitions, United Business Media (Informa) and Clarion Events. In addition, she brings decades of focus on emerging technology sectors.

Based in London,  Insurtech Insights is the largest community of insurance executives, entrepreneurs and investors globally, connecting more than 13,000 people yearly from more than 80 countries. The 2022 Insurtech Insights USA conference was testimony to the company’s unprecedented success – delivering a sold-out crowd at the Javits Center in New York – and is primed for an industry leader like Kuczynski to grow the brand to the next level.

“We are excited to welcome Megan to the team as she will bring a wealth of experience from InsureTech Connect on top of her +20 years of background within the conference & exhibition industry.” said Kristoffer Lundberg, CEO of Insurtech Insights.

“We extend a warm welcome to Insurtech Insights and are delighted they will call Connecticut their new U.S. home”, stated Ned Lamont, Governor of Connecticut. “Our great state has the best-educated, best-trained, and most-productive workforce in the world, which are key drivers behind innovation, especially in the Insurtech industry, which has seen tremendous growth in recent years.”

“As a daily consumer of Insurtech Insights’ content and a regular attendee of its outstanding conferences, I have long admired their work,” said Kuczynski. “I am thrilled to join the team, building on the company’s global success as we continue to grow the ecosystem in the United States. We have every opportunity to grow Insurtech Insights USA into the largest and most impactful insurtech event in the world.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Insurtech Insights team to the City of Stamford,” said Mayor Caroline Simmons. “Stamford has one of the best-educated workforces and quality of life in the region, and our proximity to New York City and other major cities on the Northeast corridor makes us a prime destination for global businesses. I am eager to continue to see the innovation and growth in the Insurtech industry and congratulate Megan Kuczynski on her exciting new role.”

“The CT-UK Insurtech Corridor is a collaboration between the UK and Connecticut – two globally recognized hubs for insurance.  We look forward to working with Megan and the entire Insurtech Insights team in building an even stronger landing for all insurtechs to connect into the U.S. insurance ecosystem efficiently and effectively. Connecticut remains the “Insurance and Insurtech Capital of the World.”  Susan Winkler VP and Executive Director, CT Insurance and Financial Services.
