London – 25 February 2019 – CFC, a specialist insurance provider and pioneer in emerging risk, today 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.

“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 calibre of the work we’ve done so far, and to our commitment to lead the market in digital innovation.” 

Fletcher joins CFC with 20 years of experience leading IT, DevOps and digital transformation projects at major global brands including Hiscox, Accenture and the London Stock Exchange.

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.
